    Packages are still available from various 3rd-party repos. Search via

    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    Make sure you've enabled 'Include users' home projects' under 'Search Options'

    Then follow the instructions here

    SDB:Skype - openSUSE

    Installing skype

    Go to Download the latest version of Skype for Linux and download the openSUSE RPM from the openSUSE 11+ section.

    If everything goes well, your web browser will start YaST to install this package.

    I am not aware of that, but Skype is proprietary and can not be distributed
    from our repos. Perhaps from outside repos that are not subject to the same
    laws

    Yes, it will, but you have to install the required dependencies.

    If you run it from a terminal, you'll get an error message that tells you
    what you need to install.

    I just (re)installed 64-bit OpenSuse 12.1.

    To get Skype, I went to Skype download page and clicked on download button for OpenSuse 11. Instead of saving it to disk, I chose to use application Apper as download target. Apper installed it without fuss. Starting Skype didn't work, though. So I opened terminal, typed Skype and hit return. It told me that libQtGui4.so is missing. Went to yast and installed libQtGui (32-bit). After that Skype worked nicely.

    Skype seems to be 32-bit app.

    I had installed 32-bit compatibility layer during system install.

    Sorry to rehash old thread.
    This late reply is mostly for myself, when I reinstall OpenSuse again after some mishap or another
