I'm trying to install the newest Skype version (4.1) on my Linux (which is a Linux Mint 12 upgraded to Mint 13).
I removed all installed versions including the configuration files.
I have downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 32 Bit and Ubuntu 12.04 (multiarch) package from the official Skype site.
Now when I try to install the downloaded package, I get the following errors:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_188.8.131.52-1_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 314292 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking skype:i386 (from skype-ubuntu-precise_184.108.40.206-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of skype:i386:

Errors were encountered while processing:
Now I thought, I can install the missing dependencies manually, but trying this by using apt-get I got the info that the package I try to install is already the newest version.
Also I tried to make
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install
Is there a command option for dpkg so that missing dependencies are installed automatically?
.. The skype version from within the package manager can be installed without problems, but it is the version 2.* which i don't want. ;(
Would be nice if anyone has a solution suggestion!!!
