How did you install it? Often times Linux installers won't add icons to your desktop or menu's. Sometimes you just have to open the command line and type the command to start the program. For instance, open a command prompt, and try typing:

skype

And see what happens.

How do you get started with skype


Here is the link to the Skype Application Install. I am on a mac (to search link) so you will need to skim down a view inches for the Windows (or Linux) download button if that is what you will be using. The website will detect the correct download for your system:

I just bought a HP presario laptop with free dos operating system.it uses windows but doesnt have microsoft operating system.I cant download skype.What can I do?


If an application is not available for your operating system, you have two options. One is to look for a compatible application from another source (if one is available). The other option is to switch operating systems. If you want to avoid buying a copy of Windows, install a distribution of Linux. Skype is available for Linux, and programs like WINE can let you run many Windows applications. You also have software like OpenOffice available. Ubuntu is a very popular Linux distribution. Installation is simple and it looks and acts a lot like Windows so it's easy to adjust to using it.

How do I get to my webcam in my acer laptop d150 i like to be able to make a icon for the webcam on my desktop , so i can adjust the settings in it as well , as au moment i do not even know were it is or...


Read this FAQ from ACER:
How to use the built-in webcam? The integrated webcam can be used by third-party applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Skype etc. Use the webcam button in the messenger software and it will automatically turn on and start the webcam.
Select models of Acer netbooks also ship with a program "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". This program will enable the webcam immediately after startup and can be used to take pictures and record video.

For our Linux-based netbook, you can find the Instant Messenger program in the "Connect" section on the desktop . Additional software like Skype, are available through our special website for the Aspire One netbook. Within the "Fun" section of your Linux desktop, you will find a program called "Webcam" which can be used to test the built-in webcam.


Look for "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" entry in the programs menu, then right click on the program icon and click on "Send to the desktop as a shortcut".

Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the inconvenience that you have experienced. I suggest you try reinstalling the software and driver for the OrbiCam. I am providing these instructions below.

1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program. Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.
2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.
3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers
4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose Applications and then choose CCD. It may also be under Camera in the drivers section.
7. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
8. The system may restart when installation is complete
Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary.

Respectfully,
Acer America

Downloading skype onto my acer aspire one netbook


For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.

Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it
