Skype and Ubuntu

I know that Skype isn't maintained within the Ubuntu repositories and there is good reason for that. I did however want it - mainly because we have good friends who will, from next week be in Mexico and they'll be using Skype on their Mac.

It's a simple process to get skype working on a Ubuntu Edgy box:

add the repository to the /etc/apt/sources.list
## Official Skype Repository
deb stable non-free
then its a simple apt-get away
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skype
you'll find it under Applications > Internet > Skype
