I have 64-bit 12.10 Ubuntu. I can't get Skype to install from the software center because it can't find the repositories. I can't install it from the website either. I tried checking the 64-bit Debian package in case it would work and it installed but it won't open. What should I do?

if you already installed your skype from deb file, run this command so that it will install dependecies sudo apt-get install -f –  nickanor Dec 25 '12 at 20:26

I've had some problems with the Software Center as well.

Try to install lib32stdc++6 Install lib32stdc++6:

sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6

Then cd to the directory where you downloaded the Skype.deb file. If you downloaded it to your Downloads folder, you would type:

cd ~/Downloads

Then install the .deb package.

sudo dpkg -i skype*.deb

This fixed it for me.

Thanks, but I think I installed the wrong Skype package because it still isn't working. Where did you get yours? –  zzomtceo Nov 4 '12 at 22:59
    
I downloaded the 64 bit .deb file from skype.com. What error are you getting? After you install it with dpkg -i, try doing "sudo apt-get install f" –  user65940 Nov 7 '12 at 22:53
