I am a complete novice and want to install Skype on Ubuntu 10.04. Please can someone give me step by step instructions. "Download and install Skype for Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit" just isn't enough. I have downloaded the file to my Downloads folder but don't know what to do next. Thanks.

Just click on the file, and see the instructions to set it it up. Tell me if there's any problems in the comments.

Thanks very much. There must have been something wrong with the initial download. When I downloaded it a second time it worked perfectly. Thanks @Gerep too. –  user174453 Jul 18 '13 at 19:36
    
If it worked, accept it. –  nerof61 Jul 19 '13 at 14:48

If you download it from their page, in your Download directory will be a file with a .deb extension, you double-click it and Ubuntu Software Center will open and on the right side you'll see a Install button.
