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 can I run two Skype accounts on the same computer?


To use more than one Skype account on the same computer at the same time you need to start a new instance of Skype.
1.
From the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run (or press the Windows and R keys on your keyboard at the same time)
2.
In the Run window, enter the following command (include the quotes) and press OK:
"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
If you get an error message, copy and paste the exact command from this page and try again.
Be aware that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you will need to enter the correct path for the Skype.exe file.
If this solution fails, you can try another option:
1.Find the Skype executable file (Skype.exe) in: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\
2.Right click on it and select Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
3.Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and select Properties
4.In the Target field, add: /secondary. The Target field should now be "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
5.Click OK. You can now start a new instance of Skype every time you double-click the new shortcut.

Missing files to run skype


It could just be a confused shortcut. Try and Run it from it's actual file location. If it still breaks it's internal to the application. Delete through Control Panel then...

I want to creat new skype id


I got your answer from: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA829/How-can-I-run-two-Skype-accounts-on-the-same-computer

In order to use more than one Skype account on the same computer at the same time you need to start a new instance of Skype:
  1. From the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run (or press the Windows and R keys on your keyboard at the same time)
  2. In the Run window, enter the following command (include the quotes) and press OK:

If you get any error messages, please copy and paste the exact command from this email and try again.

Please keep in mind that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you need to enter the correct path for the Skype.exe file.

If this solution fails, you can try another option:
  1. Find the Skype executable file (Skype.exe) in: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\
  2. Right click on it and choose: Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
  3. Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and choose Properties

  5. Click OK. You can now start a new instance of Skype every time you double-click on the new shortcut.
For Skype 3.8 and earlier Requirements: Windows XP, Two Skype User accounts

First, create a new Windows user by going to the Control Panel and clicking on User Accounts. Choose Create a new account and follow the steps to set permissions. We also suggest setting a password for the new user by clicking on the newly created user and choosing the Set Password option. The new user will also require admin rights on your PC.

Next, create a shortcut to Skype or make a copy of the shortcut that is already in the Start menu. Right-click this new shortcut and choose Properties. On the bottom of the first page there is a button labelled Advanced... . Click this button and select Run with different credentials. Select OK, and then select OK again to close the Properties dialog.

You're all set. Whenever you use this new shortcut it will ask for a Windows username and password. Enter the Skype Name and password of the user you created earlier by choosing The following user: option. Click OK and you'll have a second instance of Skype. It will require that you sign in with your Skype Name and password the first time.

To help automate the Run as trick you can create a second desktop icon for Skype and modify its properties. Click the Advanced button and check the box Run with different credentials. After clicking on the modified icon it will ask you to sign in as another user. Changing the icon graphic also helps ensure you click on the correct icon.

If you have multiple USB headsets or USB Phones you should be able to set up both instances of Skype to use a different sound device.

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.

Why i cant install messenger to my pc.. Linux ubuntu is my windows


Hello,
First of all, the programs made for windows can't be run on Ubuntu because Linux based operating system don't execute *.exe files.
Messenger programs like Pidgin, skype are already added in the repository of Ubuntu. You can select from the software management menu and install. Besides, you can also download the sources (tar balls) of various other messengers written fir Linux distributions, compile them and install. You need just to search on Google for all available messengers for Ubuntu.
It is advisable that you download a Debian package of the software because it is just like Windows .exe file to install it. Just, a click.
Let me know if you need any other help regarding installation of softwares on Linux.
We are always available for your help.

Regards.

Having installed skype 2.1 Beta for Linux; I want


These days the strength of a password is important. At times the same username and password is not accepted. Likewise, certain keys (characters) in the keyboard is not accepted. This could be the problem in your case. Try a combination lowercase, uppercase and numbers. Also note that these days it is important to have a minimum number or characters (say 6 or 8) is mandatory. So if you are trying with 4 or 5 characters, that password will not be accepted. Please note that passwords are case sensitive, and write down the password immediately in the exact order you typed it in.

How can i play videos in fedora10


This is what the VLC website says:

Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 Use RPM Fusion for F9 and F10 (available for x86, x86_64, ppc and ppc64)
Install rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm for F9 and f10
$> su -
#> rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
#> yum install vlc
#> yum install mozilla-vlc (optionnal)
I'm not a Fedora man myself so hopefully this makes sense to you.

If not I'll see what I can dig up.

Best of luck!

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
