How to Install Skype on Fedora
The steps that I have give here worked in Fedora 13, I cant assure anything about the Fedora 14+. So here are the steps to install Skype on fedora.
1) First of all get the skype downloaded from here.
2) Install it with the help of the command line
sudo yum install skype-220.127.116.11-fedora.i586.rpm
ldd $(which Skype)
sudo yum provides */libXv.so.1
sudo yum install libXv.i686
sudo yum install libXv.i686 libXScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686
Suppose In the step 2 you don?t get any error or such then you can directly jump to the step 6 for the installation.
I hope this installation process is pretty much clear for you.
