Here is SlackBuild script for Skype: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/skype/
Slackware 14.2 already has all dependencies, so you don't need any extra packages.

EDIT:
Skype is 32bit, so you need to set up multilib first.

I find a multilib setup (and maintaining it) to be overkill just to occasionally run one 32bit application. Instead, I keep a normal 64bit system and setup skype inside a 32bit qemu virtual machine. I then create (on the host) a /usr/bin/skype which is just a script that starts the VM (which has autologin and immediate execution of the actual 32bit skype).

hi,

I hope that zerouno will soon create a Skype package for Slackware 14.2 x86_64, like he did for 14.1 -- that installs a 32bit compatibility layer in a custom location, just for it.

I take zoruino's slackbuild. Changed speex version to 1.1.6 and slackversion 14.2.
and i got this error

nstall library libasound.so.2 from a/aaa_elflibs
Install library libattr.so.1 from a/aaa_elflibs
Install library libbz2.so.1 from a/aaa_elflibs
Install library libexpat.so.1 from a/aaa_elflibs
Install library libfreetype.so.6 from a/aaa_elflibs
ABORT! Library usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 not found in ./a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-i586-23.txz

freetype is gone from aaa_elflibs-14.2-i586-23.txz. How can i fix this?

I fixed freetype error. Just chnage appropriate line in filelist file to point proper freetype
package.

Now cxxlibs are missing it seems this library is removed in 14.2


-----------------
I found that zerouno's package for 14.1 64 bit works out of box for `14.2 ..Nice..thanks to all.
for 14.2 you need updated filelist for dependencies. So till that i'll use 14.1 package..Too lazy to check
all the things

For the ones struggling to get Skype on Slackware 14.2, I suggest a solution (maybe temporary): use "SkypeWeb".
Just type "skypeweb" on Google and get it, login with your data (Microsoft or Skype account) and enjoy
After login you will get Skype into your Outlook Mail page too.

Use skype slackbuild, but you need to install multilib http://www.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/

The all-in-one skype package (called skype_static) already contains the 32bit needed libraries so you don't need to install multilib.
That libraries are not installed in /usr/lib but in a subdirectory of skype so the system remains clean.

If you have the alien multilib you does not need this skype_static.

Yes, the problem comes out when people don't know what "static" means and... when they don't read the "ReadMe" file lol
(Hoping no one get offended, am kidding)

Or the slack-desc during.

P.S. I have to modify the slack-desc that tells that also contains pulseaudio (that is false)
