Know what you can do.
http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.p...kype_for_Linux hope it helps, I need to know what flavour of linux you have.

type this in your terminal and see what you get:

sudo apt-cache search skype

or

sudo yum-cache search skype

to install it:

apt-get install skype

or

yum-get install skype

Yum is if you have fedora, apt is for ubuntu or kubuntu.

Hope it helped.
