sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype

Note:

  1. the “lsb_release -sc” command returns your Ubuntu code name, such as “lucid”, “precise”.

  2. The original article only mentioned Ubuntu 12.04, however it works for Ubuntu 10.04 as well.

  3. The Skype package size is about 29MB.
