Bonjour!

Skype is a 32 bit application. It’s possible to install it in 64 bit Rebellin, but I still suggest you go with the 32bit variant of Rebellin. Even though it’s 32 bit, it’s capable of handling RAM beyond 4GB and also supports multi-core processors.

 

Here’s the process.

1. Download Skype from the official site. Choose the Debian 7 – Multiarch version. This will give you a deb package. The downloads are automatically stored in the Downloads folder.

2. Start Root Terminal. First update the repos using this command –

apt-get update

Now browse to the Downloads folder –

cd Downloads/

3. Now give the following command:

dpkg -i skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb

Here you can use the TAB key on your keyboard to complete file names. Just enter skype and hit TAB and the shell will complete the filename for you.

The above command will install Skype. If the installation fails because it needs additional packages, give the following command –

apt-get install -f

This will install any packages it needs. Then try dpkg again for Skype –

dpkg -i skype-debian_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb

Done! Installation complete.

4. You may close the Root Terminal. You should find Skype in the ‘Internet’ section of the menu.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers!
