Bonjour.

 

there should be a 32bit package for the latest release, but not in the default repos. So you need to add the Canonical partner repository. This needs only to remove a # in front of a line in your sources.list. You can use epad for this (as root).

sudo epad /etc/apt/sources.list

 Find this part:

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from Canonical's
## 'partner' repository.
## This software is not part of Ubuntu, but is offered by Canonical and the
## respective vendors as a service to Ubuntu users.
# deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial partner
# deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu xenial partner

Remove the # before: deb http://archive. . . . .

Save the file and close it. Next run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skype

This version should work with the 32 bit install.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Hi ! I've installed Bodhi on an asus eeepc 901 (32 bit) and i can't find how to install skype on it.. i've tried all i can find on this forum, but nothing works. Skype's website only propose to download the 64b version (or am i dumb?), i found an other version deep in the internet, i've installed it and when i opened the application it just said "error" and no explanation. Now i've purge Skype from my netbook (purge and not only removed the packages, so i can't give you any screenshot or anything) to be sure all is clean before retrying to install it.

 

Anyone has an idea?





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux
