Thread: Many bugs after trying to install Skype.

    Many bugs after trying to install Skype.

    Hi, people!
    I was trying to install Skype today and searching for a tutorial I founded one. There was three command lines to execute on terminal.
    First: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/$(lsb_release -sc) partner";
    Second: sudo apt-get update;
    Third: sudo apt-get install Skype;

    Typing this that's what happened.
    "edgar@edgar-RV411-RV511-E3511-S3511-RV711-E3411:~$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/$(lsb_release -sc) partner"
    [sudo] password for edgar:
    edgar@edgar-RV411-RV511-E3511-S3511-RV711-E3411:~$ sudo apt-get updateE: Malformed line 60 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)

    E: Unable to locate package skype
    edgar@edgar-RV411-RV511-E3511-S3511-RV711-E3411:~$ "


    Now, neither Ubuntu Software Center nor Ubuntu Tweak works anymore. The former just doesn't open and the latter the function of apps doesn't work also.
    Hope somebody help me.

    You should probably get Skype from the website if it doesn't work, http://www.skype.com/en/ and then a popup window may pop up saying to "Install it from the package".

    Re: Many bugs after trying to install Skype.

    You're going to need to do a couple things here.
    The bottom of your sources/list is all messed up and for intents and purposes will need several of the end entries at the end removed.

    Firstly, though, let's get the partner repos enabled.
    In a terminal run this
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Enter your password

    A text editor window will open with the sources.list file.
    go down to the entry

    Code:
    ## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from Canonical's
    ## 'partner' repository.
    ## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the
    ## respective vendors as a service to Ubuntu users.
    # deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    # deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    and remove the # symbol from the lines
    Code:
    # deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    # deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    to
    Code:
    deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise partner
    Then while still in the gedit window go down to the last section you have and delete everything after

    Code:
    ## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by third-party
    ## developers who want to ship their latest software.
    deb http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main
    deb-src http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise main
    So remove these lines

    Code:
    deb hrrp://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
    deb-src hrrp://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
    deb http://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
    deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/precise partner
    The lines you added are wrong anyway.
    When you finish this save and exit gedit.
    Then while the terminal is still open, run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    If no errors appear, then try installing skype again.

    If errors do appear, post them.

    Hey deadflowr! Thank you so much. Everything is working again and I've installed skype. My problem is solved.

    Jitsi

    Now that it is working for the time being you might also look into SIP-based options. Ekiga, Jitsi, Linphone and Blink can all call each other and the sound quality is better than Skype usually. The big advantage with them is that not only are they open source, the protocol they use is an open standard. You can install any of them along side Skype without disturbing anything and as your SIP network grows, you can eventually drop Skype before it drops you.
