How to install Skype in Ubuntu on AC100?

Asked by Ivan Zakharyaschev on 2012-09-01

I wonder how to install and use Skype in Ubuntu (12.04) on Toshiba AC100.

I suppose there must be Skype builds for Linux on ARM: for Android, and for Maemo/Meego/Tizen.

Where can one get these builds and how to adapt them for a usual GNU/Linux system like Ubuntu?

(The question also posted to http://unix.stackexchange.com/q/46880/4319 , because it's also of interest for all GNU/Linux systems on ARM.)

Android Skype will not run on a X11 display. We had to build an Android runtime enviroment first.

But maemo/meego/tizen might.
I have done a bit of testing with Skype for maemo 4.1, from a N810, and, as expected, too many things changed and were missing, notably Hildon librarys.

Tizen is already more similiar to a current Linux desktop, so it may worth a shot, but I don't know where to find Skype for it.

So, the best chance was Skype launching a package for Linux/arm.

Oracle already as jre for Linux/arm...
