How to install older skype version? Group chats not working in ubuntu,but working in live, and windows current version.
Skype snap package
You don't need to install older versions of Skype anymore. Skype has finally made it into the Ubuntu Software app. Skype has been released as a snap package.
snap find skype Name Version Developer Notes Summary skype 126.96.36.199 skype classic One Skype for all your devices. New features. New look. All Skype.
To install Skype in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:
sudo snap install skype --classic
I too recently (early Oct 2018) updated my Skype in Linux Mint (17.3). After that, Skype would open showing list of contacts and chat, then a few seconds later, it would go back to the full-blue start screen, then 'reopen' showing contacts and chats, then repeat once more then simply close. No errors, just closes after a couple of tries.
I reopened Skype, quickly went to Help in the Skype menu, found the version and made a note.
I then used the second link above posted by Tshilidzi Mudau to get the PRIOR version to what I have ( http://skype.en.uptodown.com/ubuntu/old ).
I uninstalled the new 'updated' version, installed the older version from above link and Skype now works. I naturally have a 'notice' in my Skype that there is an 'update' available. I will be ignoring it.
I am yet again reminded why I do not use Microstuffed software.
Thanks for the link.
Hope this helps.
