I have an old version of skype running.
I downloaded the latest version for my ubuntu installation.
On running Gdebi package installer i get the following message:
Error: Dependancy is not satisfiable : libasound2
Ichecked and libasound 2 is installed and i re-installed it from synaptic manager.
Any ideas please??

When you get this error it doesn't mean only that you don't have that package ... it means also that you gave a smaller version from the needed. For example you have python version 2.3.3 ,but a program needs version 2.4.3 .... can you write the error exactly how it shows on the screen .... And another thing do you know what audio system do you use ? I mean did you removed pulseaudio ? Because I remember that the last version of skype workes only with pulseaudio.

That's incorrect, it's the other way around, that it's no longer needs Pulse audio. I have received information which says that it should work correctly by just using ALSA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture).
Other than this, I would recommend that you download Skype static (http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/choose/) to see if it works better.
