Skype Won't Install
 
Anyone tried to install Skype in Debian Testing lately?
Code:

# dpkg -i skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 178138 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace skype 4.1.0.20-1 (using skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb) ...

It's demanding packages that are older than what I have installed.

I tried putting this in sources.list:
deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free
... but that directory doesn't exist and download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ won't let me have a directory listing.

first try yo install the missing package (Package libqtwebkit4:i386 is not installed).

Yes in Wheeezy amd64 and Sid amd64, it will not install even though it is supposed to be multiarch. If you are using Debian amd64 then sorry can't help you, if you are using Debian i386 load Squeeze into your sources list and force the install of the older packages. Not very tidy but it may work for you.

probably there are complete binaries available at skype.com that should work because they have the qt libraries compiled in. At least there were in the past, don't know the current state

Quantumstate 11-29-2012 10:34 AM

It turns out that there's a bug in Debian that prevents install. If you go here down to 7.0+ at 64-bit, and read -all- the instructions, it will install. I have it working now.

Quantumstate 11-29-2012 07:39 PM

Well, maybe I spoke too soon.

Skype runs, and logs into my account, and I can hear audio, but when I speak it does not work through the call testing service. My mike seems to be dead. Maybe it's muted, but pulse mixer in xfce doesn't have a Mike setting.

Anyone had this experience?

Also I find in Advanced settings that incoming calls come in on port 3075. My firewall is very tight, so anyone know if this is TCP, or UDP?

k3lt01 11-29-2012 08:35 PM

It won't install for me at all on this install. I'll give it a while cause I'm going to do a clean install sometime soon and try it again.

Quantumstate 11-30-2012 12:00 AM

No idea what kind of error you're getting k3lt01. Did you read -all- the instructions?

k3lt01 11-30-2012 12:09 AM

Yes I have read all the instructions, I cannot get the dependencies to install. There are more dependencies for 4.1 than there are for 4.0 and it just wont install for me on any of my current systems.

Quantumstate 11-30-2012 02:52 PM

Well, there aren't any dependencies for the method I'd described and used.

I'm overjoyed for you.

Tried again and Gdebi said there were 62 dependencies, couple of minutes later it is installed. Will test it tonight or tomorrow morning when a friend of mine gets online.

Quantumstate 12-01-2012 04:30 PM

You are just not getting what I am saying. I am trying to help you, even though no one is helping me.

Here are the instructions I followed, and they work (except for microphone):
Quote:

7.0+ at 64-bit

Using a terminal, enter the following command under the root and press Enter:

dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update

Download and install Debian 7.0+ i386. (multiarch)

Important: If you have libqtwebkit4:amd64 already installed, the installation will fail due to a Debian bug.

To fix this, using a terminal and under root, enter the following command and press Enter:

rm /usr/share/doc/libqtwebkit4/changelog.Debian.gz && apt-get -f install
There is no apt-get install, so there can be no dependencies. Use dpkg -i to install Skype.

Whoa there Quantumstate. I did get what you said and regardless of what you said Skype 4.1 would not install on my system. I followed the method in your prior posts and it did not work. I have been working on this since 4.1 was released and only now has it actually installed and the issue was skype required dependencies on my system that were not there and would not install until this morning.

Nothing worked, gdebi, dpkg, apt, nothing, until this morning. Thanks for your efforts I do appreciate them but it seems your problem was not the same as mine.

Went to the Debian Wiki and followed the instructions there.

dpkg installed 66 dependencies and then installed Skype.
