3rd party software

Asked by Jaime Pérez on 2015-12-18

I would like to be able to install spotify or skype directly from apt. It's simple:

spotify:

add repositories from:
https://www.spotify.com/es/download/linux/

add libgcrypt form debian repositories:
https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libgcrypt11

and it just works.

skype:
http://www.skype.com/es/download-skype/skype-for-computer/

Average users doesn't know how to install this packages, so it would be easier for them to add them to repositories.

BTW this works for ubuntu 14.04, 14.10, 15.04, 15.10, 16.04, so a lot of people would be happy.

14.10 is EOL and no longer supported.

I suggest you report a bug. Adding an "installer" application may help.

Skype is in the partner reposity.

Mixing Debian packages with Ubuntu will cause a big mess and is not advised.

Can you help with this problem?
