Ubuntu – How to install Skype on 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04?

14.0432-bitskypesoftware installation

I'm trying to install Skype on Ubuntu 14.04 32-bits.

I have already tried :

  • downloading from the Skype website

    But there is only a 64-bit version available.

  • I have enabled Canonical partner in Other software in Software and Updates and run

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install skype

    that returns:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package skype
  • also tried :

    sudo apt-get update --fix-missing
    sudo apt-get install skype

    but I get the same problem…

Thanks for any help!

Since July 1 there is no 32bit version of Skype anymore (source).

You can use the webclient or you have to upgrade to 64bit.
