I'm new to Ubuntu and try to install the latest version of Skype from terminal windows. Can anybody help me please, How to do this?
Users of 64-bit Ubuntu, should enable MultiArch if it isn't already enabled by running the command
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
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
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
Then install Skype via the Software-Center or via the Terminal.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype pulseaudio:i386
You simply need to add the partner repository :
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype
I downloaded skype for linux from its website. https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/
Then ran command
sudo dpkg -i skypeforlinux-64.deb
