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_22.214.171.124-1_i386.deb
and necessary dependencies
# apt-get -f install
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.
