Skype on Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04


Follow these two steps to install Skype 2.0 on Ubuntu Jaunty

1. Add medibuntu to sources.lists
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

2. Install Skype
sudo apt-get install skype

After that, you might have problem when making a call, it was “Call failed: Problem with audio playback” After playing around with the Sound Devices settings in Options, I found the setting which works with my Dell Inspiron

Sound In: HDA Intel (hw:Intel,0)
Sound Out: pulse
Ringing: pulse

Restart Skype and everything is fine 😀
