Installing Skype on EeePC, running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10

While analysing my visitor logs, I noticed several people come here looking for a way to install Skype on an EeePC running Ubuntu Netbook Remix. So here it is.

Step 1.

Download the skype installer. The package for Ubuntu 8.10 works well on 9.10 as well.

Step 2.

When download completes, double click to run the deb file. This will launch the package installer.

Step 3.

Click the “Install package” button.

Step 4.

When the installation is finished, click ‘Close’.

Step 5.

Go to Internet section and run Skype.

Step 6.

Accept license agreement

Final Step.

Login and you are done.

It couldn’t be easier!

Thanks for the hint, your post helped a lot. I was unable to install Skype on 9.10 via media repository.

Thanks for the info but my eee asus 900 pc webcamera dont show video in Skype. I have installed Ubuntu remix 9.10

When I attempted to install I got the following error

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libqt4-dbus (>= 4.4.3)

How do I go about fixing this?
