Re: how to install skype on a chromebook

I have Skype on my ChromeBokk.  

 

I followed the earlier instruction to register with https://plus.im and then linked it to my Skype account. I was able to sign in successfully with this.

Re: how to install skype on a chromebook

this is why i dont like chrome, because i never liked linux, ChromeOS (the OS for chromebooks) was a simple build off linux, they put absolutely no effort into it and thats why people abuse the **bleep** out of it, especially all the old linux "hackers"

My fix for this problem is to install ubuntu on my chromebook along side the chrome os, here is a link on how to do it:

http://lifehacker.com/how-to-install-linux-on-a-chromebook-and-unlock-its-ful-[removed for privacy]

 (This first link keeps getting killed so just google ubuntu for chromebook and look for the lifehacker . com website)

Then once you are in ubuntu download and install skype from within ubuntu, the version you will want to select is Ubuntu 12.04 (multiarch). Here's the link:

http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-linux/ 

 

This works perfectly and also fixes other limitations of chromebooks such as being able to run a full office application called libre which allows opening and creation of microsoft office documents for free. I hope this helps everyone.

rebelboy91,

 

Skype comes as a pre-installed application on the google chromebook. If you don't see it you can download it from google chrome webstore.

 

Hope this helps.


No, it doesn't come pre-installed, and if you look for it it says that Skype is not currently supported on chromebooks.

Re: how to install skype on a chromebook

First question - who are you asking?

 

Second question - Skype is owned by Microsoft, ChromeBook is Google.  Would you expect Chevrolet to fit Ford seats in their cars?  Or Air India to wear Virgin uniforms?
