Installing Skype on Ubuntu

Not sure anyone really has a problem with this BUT I thought I’d post it anyway.  The only “problem” I had were a few Skype dependencies that Ubuntu 10.04 didn’t already have installed.

1 – Open a terminal (I usally call it a command shell or shell)sudo -i

2 – Type in your password so you can work as “root”

3 – apt-get install libqt4-dbus libqt4-network libqt4-xml libqtgui4 libaudio2
* I noticed these dependencies not installed on my machine

4 – Download Skype:  wget

5 – dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-intrepid_2.1.0.81-1_i386.deb

6 – From a command shell type:  skype
