    1. Download the Skype version for openSuse.
    2. Open a terminal in the folder where you downloaded Skype.
    3. Become root ("su" etc.)
    4. type
    Code:
    zypper in <name of Skype rpm that you just downloaded>
    Zypper should take care of satisfying all 32-bit dependencies.

    That should do it.

    Follow the guidance given here for openSUSE-12.2: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Skype (it works for 12.3).

    ie:
    Code:
    su -c 'zypper install libpulse0-32bit alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit'
    After that completes, go to Download Skype on your computer - Mac, Windows, Linux - Skype and download the openSUSE RPM from the openSUSE 11+ section

    Install the openSUSE RPM.

    Then startup Skype, configure it, and it should work.

    I have successfully followed this on two different openSUSE-12.3 PCs.
