I have debian 6.0.6 installed (latest stable debian version)

When I tried to install skype the following message appeared with missing or outdated library files. How could I fix this? (where could I found the files bellow that I need as they are not in the synaptic package manager)

# dpkg -i /home/parents/Downloads/skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb

if you are going to install with dpkg you have to resolve dependicies first. Install these packages and it shoudl work out.

Neither libqtwebkit4 nor libssl1.0.0 are available for Squeeze, so you will have to either upgrade to Wheezy or compile these libraries and install them manually. I think Wheezy should become the stable version soon, so you could upgrade; but in case you need a pure 'stable' system, you could compile these libraries and install them manually.

Thanks Odiseo77 for your answer.

However where do I get
libqtwebkit4
libssl1.0.0)
and how do I compile them?

and also where do I get:
libstdc++6 (>= 4.6)
libqtgui4 (>= 4:4.8.0)
libqtcore4 (>= 4:4.7.0~beta1)
libqt4-network (>= 4:4.8.0)
and how do I compile them?

To easy the process, you can add Wheezy's source repository to your sources.list (lines beginning with deb-src) and port/compile the sources for these libs in your Squeeze system. For example, after you've added the source repository, you should do something like this for every needed dependency:

Code:
apt-get -b source libqtwebkit4
And apt-get should take care of downloading it and building a Squeeze-compatible binary from it. After that, you can easily install them with dpkg. Please be aware that some libs may depend on others, so you might have to install ones first and the others later.

Good luck!

sorry for my ignorance but would you be so kind to give an example for one library the exact commands?

command to add the source repository to the source list
command to port/compile the sources to lib
etc.

greatly appreciated

You have to read the directions as they may all be different. It sounds that your best bet is to upgrade to wheezy as said above. The later libraries could also depend on other libraries that are later than the release of squeeze. So it comes down to doing your homework or just upgrade. Even those wheezy is still in testing. It is stable enough for a desktop. It will have all the packages needed for most of the latest releases of software.

As jmc1987 suggested, is less problematic to upgrade to Wheezy (on one hand Wheezy is stable enough for ordinary usage and on the other hand, it's due to become the next stable version soon).

Anyway, if you really need to stay on Squeeze for some reason, and port the needed libraries, keep in mind that this is not a trivial task. You would have to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list file, locate the main server line and duplicate it changing the occurrence to 'stable' (or 'squeeze') to 'wheezy' and changing the 'deb' part for 'deb-src'. So, for example, if you see a line like this:

Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
You should duplicate it --leaving the original line as it is-- and changing the new line for this:

Code:
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
Then execute apt-get update, and then execute

Code:
apt-get -b source libqtwebkit4
And so on for every needed library.

But keep in mind that it's probably easier upgrading to Wheezy (there's no need to reinstall Debian, just pointing your sources.list to the proper place and upgrading should work).

Regards.

You should be able to install Skype on Debian 6 using the following commands:

wget -O http://download.skype.com/linux/skyp...0.7-1_i386.deb
dpkg -i skype-debian_4.0.0.7-1_i386.deb
