Skype still one of the most used chat tool on the world and can be installed on many devices  like Mac  Linux  Windows  and Phones.  let me show you in this topic how i get installed Skype on my Manjqro Linux 18.1  live from my Virtualbox 6.0

Method1

Please find  add/remove software under your administration tools

Under  options >  Preferences

Under Aur repository, please Enable AUR support  and check to get  updates from there

Now  find Skype under  AUR repository

Start building the package. that  will take sometimes  because of  extra  dependencies  needed for  Skype

finally  you can now find Skype under  your application

Method2

Open up the terminal and clone the latest Skype AUR repository:

1-go to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/skypeforlinux-stable-bin/
and download latest Git url  via Git client

$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/skypeforlinux-stable-bin.git

2-Build the AUR package. First navigate to the directory. Then execute the makepkg command to build the Skype AUR package:

$ cd skypeforlinux-stable-bin/
$ makepkg -s

3-it will take some time to build the package and its dependencies and check if the new file has been generated

$ ls *.tar.xz
skypeforlinux-stable-bin-8.34.0.78-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

4-Using the pacman  tool to install Skype package. Replace the package name suffix with the Skype version you have compiled previously:

$ sudo pacman -U --noconfirm skypeforlinux-stable-bin-8.34.0.78-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
