I would like to have Skype working on my computer. I did a search with Aptitiude:
joe@Squeeze:~$ aptitude search ~nskype
p pidgin-skype - Skype plugin for libpurple messengers
p pidgin-skype-dbg - Skype plugin for libpurple messengers (debug symbols)
p python-skype - Skype API wrapper for Python
v skype4pidgin -
Not sure if this is what I need. Would like to know what programs I need to install this, and what equipment to use Skype. I'm assuming all I need is a webcam and microphone to use this.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.
Sorry Jim I misunderstood.
The repo itself doesn't exist (apt-get update cannot locate anything) anymore but Skype does still host a variety of Linux versions and it is now at 4.1.
I doubt there will ever be a repo from Skype again as Microsoft now owns Skype and is moving Windows Live to Skype as well.
