Why be bothered trying to get Skype to work with Ubuntu 12.04? Just say to hell with skype and start using something different like Google Voice.

Well there must be something wrong with ubuntu 12.04. I use kubuntu 12.04 and last weekend my wife and I had a most successful Skype session, including Video, with our Son on the other side of the world for about an hour.
Less than a week ago we also had another Skype session with friends. If anything, I would say that Skype is working better in 12.04 than 11.10 because with 11.10 we often experienced gross fluctuations in data rate. On some occasions it got so bad that we had to restart Skype. Please note that all my communications with Skype involve video. Also, it pays to have sufficient CPU and memory capacity to handle the encoding and decoding operations required by Skype.
