    This is all nice and dandy, but “If you receive any dependency error or issues while installing Skype 4.1, first remove the older version of Skype, if you may have installed.” – means that we’re doing the same thing again and it won’t be auto-updated with this method. Not much point installing it in this way, imo.. Skype needs to have a stable repo (ppa) for *all* current versions of Ubuntu, Mint and Debian. After all, it’s the 21th century today and not the 1990s (ffs. :))

    Is it possible to put my video chat and my chat box together when having a video chat? When I start having a video chat, I have a 2 windows. 1 video window and 1 for chat box. Now is it possible to make into all in one?
