(if you have Ubuntu 6 – Edgy Eft see my other post)
Really really straightforward!
just go to the skype download page (here)
- Look for the Ubuntu logo and hit “Feisty Fawn” to start downloading
- Once the download is finished you’ll find the skype-debian_126.96.36.199-1_i386.deb (that’s how it’s currently called, it may change name) on your desktop or wherever your download files go.
- Open the downloaded package, then the Package Installer will do the rest.
