How to Install Skype in CentOS 6.3, RHEL 6.3, Fedora 19



This tutorial explains how to install Skype in CentOS, Redhat linux. CentOS and RHEL requires more dependencies during installation of Skype and its difficult to install all the dependencies step by step manually. So we need to setup a repo for Skype or we can install a repository which contains Skype and its dependencies.

Setup Skype Repository
First of all you will find out your system architecture
[root@amir /]# arch
X86_64     – 64 bit linux
i386     – 32 bit Linux
If you have 64 bit linux OS then use following repository
rpm -ivh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm
or else if you have 32 bit linux OS, then use this
rpm -ivh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/i386/nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm
I have 32 bit linux OS
[root@amir /]# rpm -ivh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/i386/nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm
Sample output:
Retrieving http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/i386/nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm

Preparing…                ################################## [100%]
1:nux-dextop-release     ################################ [100%]
Installed: nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm
If you need to clean your repositories, then do it
[root@amir /]# yum clean all

Cleaning repos: base extras nux-dextop updates
Cleaning up Everything

Now Install Skype
[root@amir /]# yum install skype
For more information
It will ask you to import key, type “y” and then enter
Sample output:
