How to install Skype on Debian 8 Jessie

Skype is an excellent program for voice and video communication, text correspondence. And users of the Debian operating system would also like to work with this wonderful application.

The most important thing in this process is to get the distribution package of the program in any way. For example, the most boring and banal way to download from the official site. :) The Wheezy version is successfully installed on Jessie.

Then install Skype (versions may vary):

  # dpkg -i skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb 

and necessary dependencies

  # apt-get -f install 

Amd64 architecture

Skype for 64-bit systems does not exist. Therefore, before installing we add support for the i386 architecture on our x86-64 system:

  # dpkg - addd-architecture i386
 # aptitude update 

And then install Skype using the method described above.

  1. I have such a problem. When demonstrating the entire screen, everything hangs except the cursor and sound.

  2. I worked the weight, can confuse that

    dpkg -i skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb - swears, but apt-get -f install hits everything you need, including the undelivered skype
