Re: skype for Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

Have you tried using the version available from the medibuntu repository?  This is the one I am currently using.

 

For running 32B software on a 64B system you may find some usefull information at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/32bit_and_64bit.

 

I use Kubuntu 12.10 on a 64B system and the installation gave no problems.  I hope you are successful.

Re: skype for Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

googled medibuntu and it seemed alot of code required to force it as a repository. Is it kosher? Is there an approved repository?

Re: skype for Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

Firstly, to install the medibuntu repository a guide based on using command line is at http://www.medibuntu.org/repository.php.  This just involves copying the text and pasting it into your console program and it will insert medibuntu package ppa into your package manager.  The packages available from medibuntu are listed for each ubuntu distribution at http://packages.medibuntu.org/

 

I was mistaken in thinking that Skype was only available from medibuntu.  So, if you don't want to have the other packages from medibuntu it is not necessary.  I always add the medibuntu ppa after each installation as I need the extra fonts and multimedia codecs.

Try this and it will fix your problem:

$ dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sodu apt-get update
$ sodu apt-get -f install
