That is the error message I receive when I try to install skype with terminal. Synaptics gives an error message about fixing broken something or other and when I click fix it it gives another error. Can anyone help me?
I tried deb package. This loads Ubuntu Software Center for me which is a major no no. It lags and crashes my system constantly and I have no problem using Synaptic for installing most programs but says broken package for skype and errors when attempting to fix it. I have tried every way I can think of it to get anything to work and nothing will. Just downloaded ubuntu 12.04 or whatever and I'll settle for any working version of skype just help me.
