    [12.3 64Bit Final]-How Do I Install Skype?

    Hi,

    I was using Skype on Windows 8 to communicate with my dev team.

    I installed the Skype Kopete plugin wrapper, but found out I still need Skype to be installed?
    How do I install Skype application on my new openSUSE 12.3 64Bit Final?

    Thanks!

    Maybe this helps: SDB:Skype - openSUSE

    Of course it is not for 12.3, but when you within 5 mins of 12.3 being release expect that people have:
    a) downloaded it;
    b) installed it;
    c) have experience with it with respect to Skype;
    you are a bit optimistic IMHO.

    This is my simple solution:

    Create a folder RPMS in your homedir
    Start Yast - Software - Software repositories
    Click Add, pick "Local folder", Next
    Browse to /home/YOURUSERNAME/RPMS, select it
    Check "RPM folder", Next. Next. OK.

    Now download the skype rpm for openSUSE to /home/YOURUSERNAME/RPMS

    Start Yast - Software - Software manager
    Search for skype, check it for install, Accept.
    Click the kickerbutton, Programs - Internet - More Programs and you'll find a Skype entry.
