This question already has an answer here:
I am a novice, using Ubuntu 14,04. I have tried to install Skype, and it does not work. I need it installed, but I read all the suggestions, and they all refer to using some
sudo commands in what I believe is a DOS-like command prompt menu - and I cannot find anywhere to access that?
I am sure this is a trivial question thousands have asked before, so a simple direction to where this is explained would suffice for me as help.
I also realize that I need to know what "distribution" my Ubuntu is, and if is 32 or 64 bit - where do I find that information?
Thank you in advance.
