View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Skype package not found

December 1st, 2008, 04:00 PM
I have just installed Intrepid Ibex.
Now I'm trying to install Skype.
I was able to do the first two steps below, but Synaptic does not find the Skype package.

What could be the problem?

1. Add the Skype repository*: deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free

2. Reload or update the package information

3. Install the skype package.

Try adding the medibuntu repository, it contains Skype.

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install skype
