    Skype unavailable

    Dearest comrades,

    I have been using Skype for a few months, basically since I got Linux Ubuntu. Last night, I open up skype to make a call but it doesn't work. Skype starts up and the screen just says "This version is no longer supported". I figured it needed to be updated but saw no pending skype updates on the Ubuntu Software app, so I uninstalled it and was thinking to just reinstall. I cannot find skype anywhere now. Ubuntu software just shows an app called spreedme when I search for skype. Further, I tried installing Skype through the method as posted on here:, but that also did not work, as the terminal said it could not locate the right files.

    Is there a way for me to be able to download Skype again, or should I just install Ekiga or Twinkle?

    Thank you for your time.

    You need to get it straight from

    Select the Linux DEB option and then double-click on the downloaded .deb file.
