If you download Skype (for Linux) from the skype.com website it will now give you version 4 which won't work with some (especially older) Puppies.

Not sure if the older versions of Skype remain available from the website. I think they try to force people to use the latest.

In the case of older Puppies (and even the current Wary 5.3) you stand a better chance with version 2.2.0.35 which was the current one for some time until recently, but you may need to get that from this forum as a .pet or a .sfs rather than using the method described in Post 1 of this thread.

Just installed version 4 on slacko 5.33 and everything worked right away with no modifications. I could never get my cameras working with Skype 2xx without doing things like installing vlc, etc.

I have just been to the Skype website. All the downloads for Ubuntu and Debian are now .deb files. I have tried opening them with pet-get but it won't run even though there is a menu item for Skype. There is no tar.gz file.
I have lupu5.28.005
Could we have a NRV of your instructions please?

The .deb packages from the Skype website will also need at least Qt as a dependency. There is a .tar.gz if you select "Dynamic" but it still does not include the dependencies.

I did put together some "Install and go" Skype packages for Puppy (including one specifically for Lucid) here :-

They seem to work OK so feel free to give them a try.
