Blank white screen in Skype for Linux after login *UPDATED:*

Hi, I have a problem with latest Skype for Linux. After updating, I log in to the application, the Skype logo shows up for like half a second, then everything disappears, leaving just a blank white background within the window frame. I can see and click the upper menu, but nothing happens after. The previous version works though.

My OS is: Linux Mint 17.1 (Ubuntu 14.04)


The problem still persists in version:

It took a long time, but I'm more than happy to say that the latest update, finally SOLVED the problem! I just updated and able to run Skype without any sudo or other hacky thing needed. Thank you guys for the fix!
