You can just visit Skype’s site and click on the Fedora package. Select to open it with ‘Package Installer (Default) and you are done.

Alternatively you can install the Skype repository. Open a terminal and type:

su -c 'gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo' 

In that file copy the following lines:
[skype]
name=Skype Repository
baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
gpgcheck=0

save and exit

Now you can easily install/update skype by typing:


su -c 'yum install skype'
su -c 'yum update skype'
