How to install Skype on Fedora 64 bit

Leave a comment

Just to be clear upfront this won’t work in Fedora 32 bit. If you have no clue what version you are running  photo shadey.gif check this by typing this command in your terminal:

uname -mrs

This is what I see when I type it:

cliccie for larger piccie

cliccie for larger piccie

The 64 in my case indicates that I am running 64-bit. If I were running 32-bit, both numbers would have been 32  photo puh2.gif

Okay, let’s get stared  photo nodding.gif  log in as root in terminal. You do this by typing:

su

After you have typed your password,  type:

wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/xenodecdn/skype-2.2.0.35-2.x86_64.rpm

cliccie for larger piccie

cliccie for larger piccie

When this is finished installing type:

yum localinstall skype-2.2.0.35-2.x86_64.rpm

cliccie for larger piccie

cliccie for larger piccie

At one point you will be asked “Is this ok [y/N]:”

Type:

After this is finished, you’ll find Skype in the Applications (under the “Internet”)  photo thumbsup.gif
