This June 14th the version 1.4 beta of Skype for Linux has been released, it has a nice fresh new look.
There are specific packages for:
- Skype for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
- Skype for Debian Etch
- Skype for Mepis
- Skype for Xandros
- Skype for Fedora Core 6
- Skype for Fedora 7
- Skype for OpenSuse 10+
- Skype for Mandriva
and you can also find the dynamic static package,.
The requirement to install skype in your Linux are:
* 400 Mhz processor or faster. * 256 MB RAM. * 20 MB free disk space on your hard drive. * Microphone and speakers or headset. * Internet connection (broadband is best, GPRS is not supported for voice calls, and results may vary on a satellite connection).
* Qt 4.2.1+ * D-Bus 1.0.0 * libsigc++ 2.0.2 * libasound2 1.0.12
The first change you will notice is the new interface, now each call will open its new window, and the menu is located at the button.
