Skype installing forever...

Postby cyb3rc0de on Fri Apr 18, 2014 3:49 pm

Hello mates! :D

I am using LMDE 201403 and when I try to install skype, it stays at installing skype:i386 and stays there.. howsoever, when I look at MintMenu, it has been installed. What is happening?

Thanks!
Meh! :P

Having been given little information that is difficult to say.
I suppose you installed skype with gdebi and it is just a misunderstanding on your part. After installing a package gdebi doesn't close. It just changes the button from "Install" to "Reinstall" and adds one that says "Uninstall" (maybe the english translations are not exact).

It keeps saying installing and each time I open that .deb file it have option to Install only. No uninstall button. Howsoever, skype is listed under Internet section. I am completely confused. Seems it is somehow not detected :C
Meh! :P
