How to downgrade to older Skype version


I'm running Skype 2.2.0.xx Beta on Ubunbut 10.04. My webcam doesn't work with this Skype version, but have read that this cam does work with the older 2.0.0 version.

Do you know how can I download the older version? The Skype page has only the new, beta version available. I've posted to a Skype forum, but no reply.

I'm using a Logitech Quickcam Chat. If I knew for sure that a different webcam would work with this beta version, I'd purchase one. How about anybody using Skype 2.2.0 beta with Ubuntu 10.04. Which webcam work with it?

Thanks for that. I was able to install the older version. Then did Options > Video Device > Test, and it crashed twice.
I'll see what other cameras work with the latest version.

thank you,
