Hi,
I am not able to install Skype. I have tried it by adding repository which says that failed to fetch all the packages information when i reloaded the package information.I have added that screen shot as attachments.
My problem does not ends here:( . I have tried to install Skype from Medibuntu not just one version i tried with every one static,OSS,etc... Here it says Error:wrong architecture 'i386'.
Any suggestions for me.
Thank you

can you post the contents of this file

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

or try using the deb, directly

install this first
http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/non-free/s/skype/skype-common_2.0.0.72-0medibuntu4_all.deb

then pick the one you need
32bit version
http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/non-free/s/skype/skype_2.0.0.72-0medibuntu4_i386.deb

64bit version
http://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/non-free/s/skype/skype_2.0.0.72-0medibuntu4_amd64.deb

Try this. Download Static OSS Skype version and install 32 bit libraries by typing this in terminal:


sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

when i am trying to install 32 bit it says Error:Wrong architecture 'i386' while installing with 64 bit it says Error: Breaks exisiting package 'skype' conflict: skype ( )
what to do now?

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free

remove that line from your source.list i think it is screwing things up

add the medibuntu repos using this commands


sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/`lsb_release -cs`.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get -q update && sudo apt-get --yes -q --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get -q update

then run


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade


then
sudo apt-get install skype

You should get into the habit of using gksudo with graphical applications.

It doesn't make that much of a difference for Gedit, but it does make a huge difference for other applications.

Correct:
gksudo gedit Incorrect:
sudo gedit It's a lot easier to just be in the habit of doing it the correct way instead of trying to keep a list in your head of what the applications are that it's okay to use the incorrect form with and which applications it's not okay to use the incorrect form with.
