Updating Skype
« on: July 01, 2017, 08:52:44 pm »
I am running Peppermint 6 on my Acer Aspire one.
Today I have been advised that the Skype 4.3 is out of date from today.
I was told to run http://go.skype.com/download
Did so and tried 64.DEP and 64.REM
but I do not know what to do next.
Can anyone help, please ?

I'm guessing you're running 32bit Peppermint ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

Well you're out of luck then, the new Skype is 64bit ONLY I'm afraid.

That said, the new Skype Client for Linux is only a wrapper for their web client .. so if you're running Peppermint you could always just make an ICE SSB that points to
https://login.skype.com/login
it gives you everything the new Skype Client for Linux app does except the tray icons
