[Ubuntu For Beginners] Have problems installing Skype in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin?
If yes, the solution to all your problems are here.
You might have tried to install skype on your new Ubuntu 12.04 machine by going through the google search results for “install skype in ubuntu 12.04”. I too tried the same but got stuck with quite some errors. I was not able to find any good result on getting skype running on Ubuntu 12.04.
