New version of Skype 126.96.36.199 does not work as expected, how to install the older version? Please help me, new version of skype really has many bugs in it, I want to use older version which is much simpler, but much more convenient. Thank you very much.
you have two possibilities:
Solution 1: delete the "new skype", download skype 2.2 from http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/mint_import/maya/import/base/skype, install it.
There is a chance that ubuntu will update skype again, the next time you do an update, what brings us to solution 2.
Solution 2: Use the static version of skype 2.2 like spyroboy explains on superuser.com
hopefully you understand what to do, if not, just askubuntu ;)
