Installing Skype on Debian 11

Below is a quick guide on how to install Skype on Debian 11 both in the terminal version and the gdebi package manager.

Option via terminal:

Open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T, and install the necessary packages:

sudo apt install software-properties-common apt-transport-https wget ca-certificates gnupg2 -y

The next step is to get the repository key, in the console, we issue a command:

curl -sSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/skype-keyring.gpg

We add a repository to the system:

echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/skype-keyring.gpg] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype-stable.list

update packages with the command:

sudo apt-get update

We install by issuing the command:

sudo apt install skypeforlinux -y

Installing skype from gdebi.

sudo gdebi skypeforlinux-64.deb

Of course, we enter our user password.

We confirm it with the T key

After it is properly installed, we find Skype in our system and start it:

We can log in now:
