Re: How do you install applications?
Those dependency complaints seem nonsensical. In all three cases, the versions to be installed are newer than the minimum requirement.

Ubuntu should open the .deb file you download with USC, and installing from there should point-and-click easy. It will add Chrome's repository to your source list, so after that, updates will be handled automatically by Ubuntu's package management system.
By the way, not all software in the repositories is open source. The Restricted and Multiverse repos are made of closed-source software. Skype and Chrome were probably both excluded because they are proprietary software.
Jane, stop this crazy thing!
