Install Skype with Ubuntu 14.04

As Skype is not included in the standard repository of Ubuntu, it can’t be installed directly in the console with apt-get install or the Ubuntu software. Therefore, first the appropriate repository must be added in order to subsequently install Skype:

  1. sudo add-apt-repository “deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner”
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install skype && sudo apt-get -f install

Then simply start Skype from the program menu and accept the Skype Terms of Use:
