I'm using Ubuntu 12.04, 64 bit. I have tried commands and installing skype directly from the internet, it does not happen. In laymen's term with detailed description can anyone please help me install Skype on my device?
Download the 12.04 multiarch version from here then you can both double click on it or execute from the Download folder
sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu...
you can just type skype then press tab
Download Skype for Linux in http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-linux/, choose multiarch, install the deb version (Using
sudo dpkg -i skypefile.deb) and after it push it all by using
sudo apt-get -f install .
It will install the necessaries programs.
If you failed with multiarch, you can choose the 32 bit and do the same, it will install 32 bit libraries.
