    Hi pierol, if you have not already got this fixed one of the solutions is as follows;

    The problem is caused by the tarball name change - so if you open up get-skype and change the name of the tarball from getskype-static... to skype-static (go to and check the downloads directory for the linux static image for the accurate name). Save this file and re-run get-skype and it should do the trick.

    Hope this helps.
