Latest release of Skype for Linux comes with High Quality Video and super wideband audio that have been exciting features of  Windows and Mac versions. Today I show you how to install it on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal . The process is not complicated , and we will do everything using a terminal.


  • First install the dependencies, with the command

sudo apt-get install libqt4-dbus libqt4-network libqt4-xml libasound2

  • Now download our Skype. For operating systems 32- bit by typing

cd / tmp wget http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-beta-ubuntu-32

  • While for 64-bit systems we type

  • Time (procedure common to both 32-bit and 64 bit) installed Skype with the command

    Try the following (less mistakes in the lines ;-)) for the 64-edition:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libqt4-dbus libqt4-network libqt4-xml libasound2
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-beta-ubuntu-64
    sudo dpkg -i getskype-linux-beta-ubuntu-64
