    I know you mean well, but your instructions are just confusing the poor chap. He's using 12.04, you're using 13.04. You can't get to Software Sources from the Dash in 12.04.

    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Thank you for pointing it out. My Bad.

    I have edited my post to reflect what to do in 12.04.

    Managed to change the software sources like you guys have suggested. Still not finding anything for Skype though. Like I said, it's not a really big issue, jut something that would be nice to have. I'll check out the other links provided in earlier replies to this and see what happens...

    Now you need to do this.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype

    For anyone else on 12.04
