Skype and Moblin
This was the thing that when I first installed Moblin beat me :(
However not to be beaten ( well not too often!) I tried again
There was a clever person claiming on Moblin's site here:
that it was easy after all so determined to prove them wrong (only joking matey!) I tried to prove an idiots guide is not all it is cracked up to be and precludes real idiots ...like me!
However despite my best endeavours
So I fired up the terminal programme
alt +F2 then typed terminal
Paste this in your terminal as it is
sudo gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo
Enter your password
Note the space after gedit and full stops between 'yum.repos.d' I did not and it did not work!
This opens a file in your repositories called skype repo using a text editor 'gedit'
Here you copy and paste in the following info as it is shown here:
Save the file under File or ctrl and s
Go back to the terminal programme and paste the following command
sudo yum install skype
Skype is now installing! :)
You can access the skype programme in the applications section under internet or type skype after hitting alt + F2
Here is a thing. When I installed this. It did not start straight away. However after I had rebooted later it was there and ready to go.
