Ubuntu – Why won’t Skype install


I have 64-bit 12.10 Ubuntu. I can't get Skype to install from the software center because it can't find the repositories. I can't install it from the website either. I tried checking the 64-bit Debian package in case it would work and it installed but it won't open. What should I do?

Best Answer

I've had some problems with the Software Center as well.

Try to install lib32stdc++6 Install lib32stdc++6:

sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6

Then cd to the directory where you downloaded the Skype.deb file. If you downloaded it to your Downloads folder, you would type:

cd ~/Downloads

Then install the .deb package.

sudo dpkg -i skype*.deb

This fixed it for me.
