Ubuntu – Where can I find an older Ubuntu version of Skype that still works with alsa


Since version 4.3 of Skype, alsa is no longer supported in favour of pulseaudio.
I need alsa because several USB webcams are known not to work with pulseaudio.

Where can I download the last Ubuntu .deb package version of Skype that still supported alsa?

The safest way to install Skype is from the Canonical Partner repository. The latest version there is still 4.2.

The advantage with getting Skype from Canonical Partner is that certain dependency packages are automatically installed.
