How To Install Skype on Fedora 18 x64

Skype is a widely used application and running Skype is easy to do on Fedora 18 x64, so how do we install it? First we need to install the 32 bit libraries.

$ sudo yum -y install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 qtwebkit.i686

Download  the  Skype  rpm  from the  website http://www.skype.com/go/linux. The current download is for Fedora 16 32 bit and will work just fine. Now install it.

$ sudo rpm  -ivh  skype-4.1.0.20-fedora.i586.rpm

And that’s all there is to it. Open Skype and sign in or sign up!
