Re: ubuntu - how install skype via GUI?
If you don't have already install 'Synaptic Package Manager' (Its a more detailed than Software Center).
Check your software sources at /etc/apt/sources.list. You MUST have the 'Universe' and 'Multiverse' sources enabled... you can use Synaptic to do this. AFAIK 'Skype' is not available for linux in 64bit, so it runs on 64bit using 32bit libraries/dependencies. Having Universe, Multiverse and Backport repos/sources this is make easier.
remember, after you make any changes to sources and BEFORE you install anything you have to run:
in the Terminal.
$ sudo apt-get update
And carefully look at the output of the above command and see if you get any errors. If not, you are good to proceed to install any package.
