    Cinnamon Mint 18.1 – Have followed your instructions – downloaded the skypeforlinux-64.deb, it showed up in Internet directory, but clicking on it produced nothing.
    Tried to start it from the command – skypeforlinux – again nothing.

      As I said, the official way to install Skype on Linux is using snap, please remove the .deb package and install from snap using following commands.

      $ sudo apt install snapd
      $ sudo snap install skype --classic

    I cannot find the skype installation package, so the command goes wrong.
