I am a Linux rookie. I am using Fedora 16 (64-bit) with the Gnome 3 interface and am trying to get Skype working. I tried:
Download 'Skype-22.214.171.124-fedora.i586.rpm' from the Skype website.
$ rpm -i Skype-126.96.36.199-fedora.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libXScrnSaver is needed by skype-188.8.131.52-fc10.i586
qt >= 4.4 is needed by skype-184.108.40.206-fc10.i586
qt-x11 >= 4.4 is needed by skype-220.127.116.11-fc10.i586
$ yum localinstall --nogpgcheck skype-18.104.22.168-fedora.i586.rpm
As I do this, the install appears to go through. The Skype icon appears in Gnome but when I click on it, nothing happens. Thus I did
$ yum remove skype
I am assuming that the RPM Skype 2.2 I downloaded is 32-bit and I need to install some sort of dependency before I can get it to work with Fedora 16 X64?
