Hi guys, I using MX-14 (with XFCE and with last updates), but I have some problems with it. I googled some tips... but nothing workded.
First of all, I tried to download the last version by officialwebsite debian32bit.. but when I run it, nothing happens...
so I tried to run it by terminal.. output: aborted
so I downloaded a previous version 4.1... and it worked but during login -> error... so I googled and I found that I must run the last version for a corrected login (username and password are correct, I tried them by the website ;) ). Also I tried the 4.2..... error login again. So I tried to install the last version by tar.gz
copied the folder in /opt/ and
symbolic link in /usr/ and deleted ~/.Skype
but again output: aborted, when I run skype....
so I also tried with wine.... but I have some error that right now I don't remember...
obiously before every installation there was a purge action ;)

What can I do?
thanks for support dudes!

I'm not a Skype user but as far as I can tell the Debian wiki's instructions (https://wiki.debian.org/skype#A32_bits_.2F_i386) still work.

The 4.3.0.37-1 version gets installed.

If I start it in a terminal Skype starts up without any errors and presents a signin window:

I have had no trouble installing Skype 4.3 from the Linux download. Are you choosing the right distribution and architecture (Debian 32bit)?

Remember that you have to install PulseAudio to get sound. See the Sound Doc and the video for details.
