When I download Skype for Linux Alpha from here and click on it, software center opens and crashes immediately. This does not happen with other .deb files that I have downloaded. Any suggestions?
This is common bugs with new software center, as its not dependable yet to install third-party
Please try install the
.deb files using
dpkg instead of software center:
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/your/skype.deb
/path/to/your/skype.deb with your exact path.
