Skype Installer 0.1.10

There is an update of Skype Installer 0.1.10 available in our repos.

Due to problems with installing Skype stable 4.x on Sparky 64 bit, I made some changes inside the installer:
– downloads and installs Skype 4.x on 32 bit systems
– downloads and installs Skype 1.x Alpha on 64 bit systems

There are some dependencies problems trying to install Skype i386 on x86_64 bit systems now.
This solution should resolve the problem, so upgrade the ‘skype-installer’ as following:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skype-installer

Then run the Skype Installer from Menu-> Internet.

Doing the new year clean up I have removed Skype package from the Sparky repository.
The reason why I’ve done it’s not difficult to guess.

But I’d like to give you an opportunity to easy install Skype anyway.

There is a new small tool called ‘skype-installer’ which lets you download, install or remove Skype via one click. The tool will download the Skype package from its project page.

How to install ‘skype-installer’?
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skype-installer

Then run the installer from Menu-> Internet-> Skype Installer.

If you upgrade all the system packages to the latest version today, you will get an update of Sparky APTus Extra 0.1.11 which lets you install ‘skype-installer’ as well.
