Can't download skype?
Hi, I'm literally about a week into using Linux, and I'm using Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Now, pardon me, I'm new to this, so I won't be using any kind of correct terminology or anything.
I've been having so many problems, but I'll ignore most of them for now. I want to download Skype, really bad.
However, I downloaded it, and tried installing it through... er, Ubuntu Software Center. Yeah. And it went to almost finished but never completely finished installing. I had it sitting for about five hours, and nothing.
that's pretty much what it looked like for a few hours.
I'm kind of desperate and really frustrated.
(Also, if anyone wants to help me now that I have your attention, it takes for-freaking-ever to switch in between applications. Is there a reason for this, or is it just because I'm on a netbook with not much memory?)

Or if you want you can try and install it from terminal do this by:
sudo apt-get install skype that should install it.
