5 A versão 4.3 funciona perfeitamente no Linux Mint 17. Não tive problemas com conversas online, nem com problemas com a webcam. O problema é o visual do Skype que é bem ultrapassado no Linux, mas nada que seja um incomodo. Recomendo o download.

4 I like to use Skype, it is a lovely tool for international communication. But, why the hell, was it necessary to to introduce a new version of Linux software, and force the users too use it? And all this without a comment from the developers? Was Big Blue about to introduce a backdoor into linux computers? On a different computer (Mac Os) the old software still works!

1 The forced upgrade does not work on either of my machines, even ofter a clean uninstall and install of 4.3.0.37. Both PCs fail after logon with an "Aborted" error. Skype support are aware of the issue and have not fix at this time, they recommend using a different OS.

3 Skype 4.2 no longer works. You must have 4.3. Here's how I installed Skype 4.3: First open the Software Centre, search for skype and uninstall both skype and skype-bin:i386. Now go to http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-computer/ and select Ubuntu12.04 (multiarch) to download. Save the file (skype-ubuntu-precise_4.3.0.37-1_i386.deb) then run the file by double-clicking on it. That's all! If you still get 4.2 when you open Skype try rebooting.

3 This application is great!.......if it works right. The Linux version has some MAJOR bugs with sound. Either you get no sound, or a loud and a really annoying sound. If you are lucky, you'll get the sound to work the right way. They really need to update this because of the sound bugs. I would use this a lot in the PC in my room and my laptop if it wasn't so buggy with sound. I just use my iPod for Skype calls with friends when we play games. Skype works on Windows PERFECTLY and looks great! Skype for Linux looks like an outdated version of Skype opens up lots of windows, while in Windows it keeps it all in one window. I'm in the middle of recommending it and not recommending it.

4 Pretty good. No adverts! Installed this on LMDE 64 bit and it just worked, no hassle, also installed it onto Mint 16 KDE, sound was big problem! Would not see internal mic that is until I plugged in an external mic, then Pulse audio suddenly decided there was an internal mic! Not had any shut downs or crashes as others have described.

4 Always liked skype. On new install of olivia 15 cinnamon, must add your username to group pulse-access as root, eg gpasswd -a paul pulse-access. Otherwise, sound is too crackly/distorted to use. This worked instantly for me. UPDATE: it just stopped working again. Will investigate.

4 Unlike some people, I prefer this to its windows brother, because it's so streamlined & freed from all the advertising crap of the MS version. Now that MS bought it, let's hope they don't ditch or forget the Linux version... The slow development has been a drawback, though. At this moment, a bug both in 32 & 64bit makes Skype lose the login information on startup, randomly, it seems.

Too bad is not open source. At least the interface could be.

5 A most to have! Skype is connecting people and is a powerful visual communication tool. If one is using it the right way one can make a great benefit out of it and for no fees included. However, some services are indeed not free of charge but they are worse the money. If you don't have it and use it try it.

2 kinda useful for calls because of the great rates, and it has great sound quality comparead to other VOIP services. Terrible webcam support though, and it lacks the majority of features of it's windows and mac counterparts, like plug-ins and add-ons. For calls, you're better off using the landline-dialable Skype number (which you can setup on their site) and for IM, there are less clunky protocols out there. Skype is notorious for dropping IM (not just in the Linux version)

4 The program works great and is the service skype offers is top notch. Still says "beta", too bad the developers don't put more work into the linux version which is dragging behind the windows edition. All or most the functionalities are here and work, sound quality is excellent, video works fine also.
