    Skype

    Hello, everybody!

    I DESPERATELY and really very URGENT need to install Skype on my laptop Lenovo G-580, Linux Kubuntu version:

    3.2.0-29-generic-pae #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 27 17:25:43 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    and when I try

    $ sudo apt-get install skype

    I receive the answer:

    The package "skype" could not be found.

    HELP ME PLEASE, I REALLY NEED SKYPE ASAP.

    Edit: I also can't find Skype in Muon Software Center

    You have to go to muon and go to software sources and check the box that says "Canonical Partners" and then refresh muon and you will find it.

    run
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    Move down using arrow keys until you find
    Code:
    #deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu raring partner
    #deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu raring partner
    Remove the pound symbols from the front of those lines, and press Control +X to save.

    run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install skype

    Re: HELP me to INSTALL SKYPE, please

    thank you very very much, dear friends! I've added Canonical and it worked via the konsole, it didn't appear in the software center, but that doesn't matter!

    I send you my best sincere gratitude once again! Thank you!
