Actually, these days, you don't even need to use localinstall.

Download the rpm even though it's for F16 and i586. Then

yum install skype-<version>.rpm

Yes, localinstall is deprecated.

Download the Fedora 32bit (yes 32bit) RPM file from website, then

yum localinstall SkpeRPMfileYouDownloaded.rpm

is enough. I really DO NOT understand why other users suggested such strange solutions like enabling repositories or other... "things"

There are 2 methods:


  1. download skype rpm for fedora from the skype site
  2. su to root
  3. yum localinstall skype*rpm # this will install all deps


  1. add russian fedora nonfree repo
  2. install skype using yum: yum install skype

p.s. unfortunately I can't post direct links since I have few carma (stupid, but true).

install russianfedora-nonfree-release.noarch

su -c 'yum install --nogpgcheck'

after that

yum --enablerepo=russianfedora-free,russianfedora-nonfree install skype

I use it in my Fedora 19.x86_64

package is an i586 (skype- )

beware that software is experimental.
