Installing Skype in Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

August 28, 2007

(if you have Ubuntu 6 – Edgy Eft see my other post)

Really really straightforward!

just go to the skype download page (here)


  1. Look for the Ubuntu logo and hit “Feisty Fawn” to start downloading
  2. Once the download is finished you’ll find the skype-debian_1.4.0.99-1_i386.deb (that’s how it’s currently called, it may change name) on your desktop or wherever your download files go.


  3. Open the downloaded package, then the Package Installer will do the rest.
