HowTo / Notes

Native version available
There is a native Linux version of Skype available at the official Skype website.

Also you can use Skype for a web browser.
HOWTO
There is a bug in the installer, so you will have to download the .msi directly from here, and then run wine msiexec /i SkypeSetup_4.0.0.226.msi
