- How to install Skype 4.3? [duplicate] 2 answers
I am running Ubuntu 13.10 32bit. Since a couple of days Skype doesn't work anymore: "Skype can't connect". It is Skype version 4.2. I know there have been other posts regarding this problem. Here it is suggested to update to Skype 4.3 using the software center. I tried this but as far as I can see it the Skype version on the software center is still 4.2. I tried ot anyway, that is, I first uninstalled then reinstalled Skype via the siftware center. But as expected it is still version 4.2. And there it still does not work. Also I checked this site ... but they do not have a version for Ubuntu 13.10. For some reasons I would not like to update Ubuntu to V 14.04 at this point so I would be happy if someone came up with a solution how to fix this problem on Ubuntu 13.10.
