Solving Skype audio problem in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

I installed Skype on Jaunty but my audio was not working even though i was able to record my voice using Sound Recorder. After going through many web pages and trying many solutions the one that finally worked for me is this.

stop skype, open terminal and issue following commands
  1. sudo killall pulseaudio
  2. sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio
  3. sudo apt-get install esound
  4. sudo rm /etc/X11/Xsession.d/70pulseaudio
now start skype and every thing works fine.
