I'm a 14 year old and absolutely useless at technology. I think its Ubuntu 10.04, and my brother showed me how to do it but he isn't very knowledgeable about my Netbook. So it got all the way up to downloading the package then it said could not download all required files and I don't know what to do?
Since Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), Skype is part of the Canonical partner repository. To install Skype add the Canonical Partner Repository. You can do this by running the command
Open a Terminal by e.g pressing Ctrl+Alt+T, then type:
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
It will ask for your user password.
Then install Skype via the Software-Center or via the Terminal.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype
