How to Install Skype on Ubuntu 9.04

Installing Skype was one of the first tasks that I did, once I installed ubuntu 9.04 on the PC. I tried a lot to do it but at last figured out how to do it.

Open the terminal window from Applications > Accessories > Terminal

Type in the following command:

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/`lsb_release -cs`.list –output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list; sudo apt-get -q update; sudo apt-get –yes -q –allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring; sudo apt-get -q update

After the above command runs successfully, type the following command:

sudo apt-get install skype


Skype is installed on your PC..
