Too bad this doesn't work. The repository that Skype is in isn't included in 11.10 so Skype isn't in the software center and typing the apt-get won't get you anywhere.
You can download skype from their website skype.com. There you will get the deb file. Just open it using ubuntu software center. It will be installed automatically.
Skype doesn't have an option for 11.10 version and 10.04 or 10.10 doesn't work what skype download do you suggest?
