How to install Skype on Kubuntu?


I've searched it up and none of the solutions provided have worked.
Please write an explanation easy enough for a beginner to follow.

Go to the Skye Download page http://beta.skype.com/en/download-sk...-for-computer/
and specify Ubuntu as the distribution.

It seems that you can either install Skype by downloading the .deb file from skype.com like this:
http://www.noobslab.com/2012/11/inst...in-ubuntu.html
Or see this:
http://www.tecmint.com/install-skype...tu-linux-mint/

You can also install Skype from the Ubuntu Partner repository like this:
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-ins...04precise.html
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype
You can just copy and paste those commands directly from the links above right into your terminal.
So install Skype either using the .deb installer from skype.com, or use the Skype from the Ubuntu partner repository. Do not install both of them together.

You can enable the partner repository from the software sources app:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...r_Repositories
Note that the installation will be the same on Kubuntu as it is on Ubuntu or Xubuntu.
Write back if you need more help with this.

None of those methods work. I get this result:

Also, it states that the architecture doesn't match. I specifically need Skype on Kubuntu.
