The CloudBook doesn’t come with Skype, but considering that Skype makes a Linux version, I had high hopes that I’d be able to download it and start making calls. I went to the Skype Linux Download page and clicked on the Ubuntu version, because gOS is pretty-much Ubuntu Linux (in fact, you see the Ubuntu logo and the word Ubuntu all over the place in gOS). Strangely, the file that downloads on Skype is called skype-debian_22.214.171.124-1_i386.deb which implies that it is, in fact, the Debian Linux version of Skype you’re getting. However, Joanna Stern spoke to her friends at Skype, who assured as that this is indeed an Ubuntu version of their software. So what happened when I tried to install it? I got an error message.
Anyone know what “Cannot Install ‘libqt4-gui’” means? I have to wonder whether this is a problem with the Skype install or a problem with gOS.
