Ubuntu – Skype is closed after logging in

skype

I installed Skype using Ubuntu Software Center. When I logged in to Skype, it was automatically closed. I tried to remove and reinstall it but the problem is still there. How to fix it?

Update:

Log output after login.

hieund@hieund:/etc$ skype
Fatal: ASSERT: "interface->childCount() == children.count()" in file adaptor.cpp, line 200
Aborted
hieund@hieund:/etc$
