    install skype using this how-to: http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Skype

    yes, that page doesn't mention 12.1 but i guess it will work anyway
    because i guess you have a 64 bit openSUSE (though you didn't say) and
    you just need to do that same thing for it that was done for 11.4

    try it..

    	echo "USE su to log as root!";exit
    fi
    
    
    if [ $si = "x86_64" ]
             then zypper in -y libasound2-32bit xorg-x11-libXv-32bit xorg-x11-libs-32bit libqt4-x11-32bit libpng12-0-32bit
             if [ -e $pks ]
                    then zypper in -y -l $pks
             else

    For me, installing Skype in openSUSE 12.1 64bit worked as before in 11.x:

    1. Download the RPM from the Skype homepage (make sure to pick the version for openSUSE).
    2. Install the missing 32bit libraries with Yast (either by following the wiki instructions, which lists them, or by simply starting skype from a konsole and noting in the error message which library is missing).

    Done.

    That said, Skype should really add the missing dependencies to its RPM package to end this nuisance!

    software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 12.1, Advanced search options, check the box for the user homedirs. Lord_T serves skype packages, they work on my 12.1 systems. Except for the webcam image, it's upside down, but that can be solved.

    This plus the skype RPM did it for me on my 64bit install.

    Code:
    su -c 'zypper install libasound2-32bit xorg-x11-libXv-32bit xorg-x11-libs-32bit libqt4-x11-32bit libpng12-0-32bit'
    Here is the command source page

    Hey there! I installed openSuse again after one year!
    Now, I would ask you, is openSuse 12.1 compatible with the Skype version (11+) available on the official site?

    It seems to work OK here. Since you've installed it, you should try it
    out and see if it works for you.
