In the previous post we presented to you how to run chromium browser and vlc in BT 5 , now we are going to show you how to run skype with root privileges.

In the beggining we have to go to the software management and click on the “edit software resources” option, then we go to the tab named “other software” and we add the follow link without the quotes, and then we hit close and then the reload  button:

“deb http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/debian/ stable non-free”

Then we open terminal to install skype:

“sudo apt-get install skype”

And that’s it!  Have  nice call conferences.  🙂

    penny stock Wow, incredible blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is fantastic, let alone the content!
    I’m not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for fantastic info I was looking for this info for my mission.
    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  3. We were able to provide you with some of the facts above but there is still plenty more to write about in subsequent articles.

  4. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has
    pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Outstanding choice of colors!
