My synaptic package manager didn't have skype, so I tried downloading from the skype website Ubuntu 10.04 distribution, but it didn't work when trying to install. Then I tried downloading lubuntu 12.04 (upgrading from the Update Manager, hoping that skype would work with the newer version), but my connection was too slow and I interrupted it. It restored the old distribution and said I could resume later. But when I open the Update Manager, it thinks that everything is up to date. Suggestions? The ultimate goal is to have skype, not upgrade. Also, when I tried google voice, my microphone wasn't working.
