I have attempted to install Skype using the skype website for Ubuntu 12.04, and it says that I have to open it with the software centre, so when I click on the file it says error.
I then followed instructions on how to install it using the terminal, which came up with errors. Although the skype application button came up when I searched the computer, when I clicked on it nothing came up.
The computer I'm using is a compaq presario F500.
Any suggestions as to why skype won't work or install?
