installing skype using ubuntu tweak

Asked by jellyware on 2010-05-23

I thought skype would be a good cantidate for installing using ubuntu tweak. I'm not good with installing using a command line so I thought tweak could help me

I goto http://ubuntu-tweak.com/app/ and search for skype. i can find it but I can't seem to install it using tweak....

Well since Skype isn't open source, it is not in the default Ubuntu repository. By adding the Canonical partner repositories, you can easily install Skype through the Software Center. Follow the link below:
