    However, when you right-click it and "mark for installation", you are told it is NOT AUTHENTICATED:

    What to do?
    Trust or not trust, that's the question

    Thanks for the post. I could have sworn that Skype was one of the internet programs in the menu, but couldn't find it with knoppix 7.0.5 tonight.

    <sigh> found my own post from earlier in this thread - forgot I had the same issue before:]
    I too am trying to figure out how to install skype with knoppix and wondering why this isn't easier.

    Skype use in Knoppix, and some alternatives

    ...wondering why this isn't easier...
    Knoppix doesn't include or facilitate inclusion of Skype as it might.
    In researching why this should be, I have learned that there are both
    licensing and potential security issues that cause this to be so.

    Skype terms of use:
    http://www.skype.com/en/legal/tou/
    See especially the licensing section.

    Skype security considerations:
    http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/16407/skype-security-linux\
    See especially Ninefingers' comments.

    Without belaboring onerous licensing and potential security problems
    related to Skype, I am informed that Knoppix users might be better served
    by free software alternatives like Google+ Hangouts, standard SIP applications
    like ekiga and linphone, or XMPP-compatible programs like Pidgin.
    All of these have secure and open protocols, and best of all, are already
    included-in, or at least freely available and applicable-to Knoppix.

    This intends to amplify a hint Capricorny introduced back at post #9.

    Install GDebi (if you use CD version) via Synaptic and right click the .deb file of Skype. Choose GDebi Package installer and install. Worked for me .

    Well, gdebi sometimes can solve dependencies while installing .deb-packages; but have you seen the age of the thread?

    Well better later than never. And sometimes people get lazy and search for quick solutions so I decided to put one.
