I am newbie to Freya and I need to install Skype. I tried to download it from the Skype website but there is no support for Freya. There's only an Ubuntu version
.deb. Now I don't know how to install it.
Removing previous version(If you have)
sudo apt-get remove skype skype-bin:i386 skype:i386 sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386
Clear the old Skype folder before installing latest version.
rm -rf ~/.Skype
Preparing to Installing Skype:
Users of 64-bit should enable MultiArch if it isn't already enabled by running the command:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Update repositories and "updates" list:
sudo apt-get update
Open Software& Update --> Other software tab then enable Canonical Partner repository.
Then close --> reload
Now open terminal and run
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype
