I need some help and I hope that someone will have the answer.
Yesterday, I installed skype 18.104.22.168 on ubuntu 12.04 but after rebooting skype a couple of times I experienced a bug, basically it crashed, so I did some search on the net and I used the following commands to remove the app (which is impossible to find in "ubuntu software center"):
sudo apt-get remove skype
sudo apt-get remove skype-bin
sudo apt-get purge skype
sudo apt-get autoremove
after I used these commands, I tried to reinstall the app which I downloaded from skype website (.deb file). I got these lines back (unable to reinstall the app)
