So, have you tried to install skype as suggested by several posts? What happened?
It was easy to install when I was directed to the right GUI
So, you should mark the thread as solved and move on.

If you know how to read, all you had to do is search the Users Manual:

Alt-F1
Ctrl-F
Skype
More sarcasm
Reading is pretty easy, knowing to press alt f1 and ctrl f isnt.
Why would you criticise me for asking in here.
What a stink this is.

I'm gone.. but I'll be back later with a different name & fake smile, and leach information off of you twats, and you won't even know it's me.
Guess I'll treat you how you deserve to be treated. Aloof twats.
It could have been different, but balls to you.

All the guys who actually helped me without condescending sarcasm, I really appreciate it.

The rest of you make this place just another elitist toxic linux forum.

Yea, sorry.
It's just every time I read about a new 'best' Linux distro thats easy to use, I usaully end up stuck.. It constantly frustrates and dissapoints ,me. Regardless of what people say it's not anywhere near as easy to use as windows. I really have trouble getting my head around it.
I'll try this method.. seems simple.. when you know how... that's the problem
I rather doubt anyone forces you to choose Linux over windows. To expect Linux, of any flavor, to work like windows is a 'tad' unrealistic. There is a learning curve.

I guess we can expect this type of computer "user". No doubt there will be more. I would hate to be his IT!

For any observers, please be nice. Being a brat never works when trying to get your computer to work. I'm more likely to fix your computer if you're nice, maybe give me a cupcake! You'll be last on my list if your mean, or I'll send in a rookie!

As Mod I'm going to close this thread, since it has exhausted its usefulness.
