Installing Skype on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise) / Debian Wheezy / Debian Jessie

Uncategorized , , , 1 Comment
  1. Download one of Ubuntu 12.04 (multiarch) or Debian 7.0 (multiarch) version from the Skype download page.
  2. Add the i386 architecture to your package manager:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
  3. Update your package list:sudo apt-get update
  4. Try installing the Skype package – will fail on dependency tests, that’s normal!:sudo dpkg -i Downloads/skype-<version>_i386.deb
  5. Fix the dependencies and then install the Skype package:
    sudo apt-get -f install
  6. Profit.
