Skype is one of the most popular communication tools, allowing you to call friends, family, and colleagues across the globe over the Internet for free.
Skype has revolutionized the way people communicate, and it’s now available on just about every platform imaginable, from computers and laptops to smartphones to video game consoles.
Add Skype Repository
Though the Skype package for Fedora is available as an rpm package for installation on the official page, we will configure the repository to download and install it through the
dnf package manager.
First, Install the packages for Skype installation.
sudo dnf install -y at alsa-lib pipewire-pulseaudio glibc libXv libXScrnSaver
Then, add the Skype repository to your system with the below command.
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://repo.skype.com/rpm/stable/skype-stable.repo
Install Skype on Fedora 36
After adding the Skype repository, install Skype with the
sudo dnf install -y skypeforlinux
After installing Skype, you can start it by running the
skypeforlinux command or going to Activities » Search for Skype.
Finally, you can now sign in to Skype with your account and start making calls to your loved ones.
Since the system already has the Skype repository, you can use the
dnf to update the Skype to the latest version at any time.
sudo dnf update skypeforlinux
