Installing Skype on Eee 1000 Running Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

| Comments

I have an eee 1000 netbook running Ubuntu Jaunty netbook remix. Installing and configuring Skype was pretty simple:

Add the Medibuntu repository:

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring
sudo apt-get update

Install skype:

sudo aptitude install skype

Video worked out of the box. To configure sound, got to Options –> Sound Devices. Set: Sound In: HDA Intel (hw:Intel,0) Sound Out: Pulse Ringing: Pulse
