I have been trying to install Skype for the terminal, I cant get past trying to give it a pass word. It will not even let me type one in. Good thing this computer is set to log-in automatically.
john@john-X55U:~$ sudo apt-get install libqt4-dbus libqt4-network libqt4-xml libasound2 [sudo] password for john:
using this one does the same thing: sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6 lib32asound2 ia32-libs libc6-i386 lib32gcc1
I did get it to allow me to try too many pass words (this machine is borrowed from a friend), but then it decided I was trying to hack in, so it will not take a pass word at all now. Or so it seems.
When I try to install automatically, I keep getting a pop-up that says “this involves installing packages form unauthenticated sources”, then is give me the options of “repair”; I have to click that several times. Then I get a notice that “new soft were can't be installed because there is a problem with the soft were already installed”. Do I need a newer version of Ubuntu? I do not know how old this one is.**
