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?
I've had some problems with the Software Center as well.
Try to install lib32stdc++6 :
sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
cd to the directory where you downloaded the Skype.deb file. If you downloaded it to your Downloads folder, you would type:
Then install the .deb package.
sudo dpkg -i skype*.deb
This fixed it for me.
