[SOLVED] Skype package?

Is the Skype package no longer in the repos? Which file is then appropriate to download? How do I tell terminal to install it?

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Skype package?

Okay, thanks!

Is gdebi a program or a command? I'm not familiar with that one.

Okay, that last part makes sense. Its being funny, the run dialog box, it runs some things but not others (most notably games LOL)

Okay, getting following error message

:~/downloads$ gdebi skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb

Wrong architecture 'i386'

I do have the 64-bit version of #!

farmersdaughter, you might also want to properly setup multiarch...
