I have been bashing my head against a wall with this one; despite having trawled several relevant threads and asked in freenode, I'm still stuck.
The following thread is the closest to my issue: Can't install Skype 4.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit
Gave a 14.04 64-bit system to my dad but haven't been able to get skype running for him. The libqtwebkit4 one is given as the problem, but it is already installed - I've checked. I've also run all of the instructions in the linked thread to no avail. Partner repositories are enabled, but I can't install from apt-get either.
