Skype is a program to do video phone calls over the network.


Get it

To download and install Skype, find out your distribution and proceed accordingly

Run it

  • run skype:
cd skype*

Configure it

You will now have to select "Options -> Sound Devices -> Make a test call" and experiment a bit with what Sound Card you use. "Make a test call" will explain everything to you.



Audio has been improved a lot with Skype 4 from 2012.
