Install Skype under OpenSuse 11.x

If you have installed Skype and it crashes while starting you maybe have an old version of Skype. Here are steps to install Skype on Linux:

1) Delete currently installed Skype
zypper rm skype

2) Delete hidden file .skype in the user home directory.

3) Make sure you have installed libpng12-0 package. Install it by YaST if needed.

4) Grab the current Skype version from http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-computer/linux/ and install it. You can also install it directly, e.g.
rpm -Uvh http://download.skype.com/linux/skype-
