I am using Easy Pyro64 1.2.7, and like always I only have problems installing Skype, a program from the most anti-opensource company in the world.

I tried doing this with the newest deb. file from Skype's website, without any success. Unfortunately I need it on my PC, because everyone else uses it.

Had anyone created a SFS file yet to install it?

All EasyOS questions should be posted to this forum thread:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=109958&start=1935

To avoid confusion with the mainstream pups and other derivatives.

I don't know your browser selection, but I use the Web browser version of Skype

web.skype.com as an alternative. on Bionicpup64 with Google Chrome.

Note about SFSs, those designed for the pups will not work in EasyOS. What you have to do is extract an SFS to a folder, then run 'dir2sfs' in EasyOS.

If you look at some of the comments in 'dir2sfs' script, there is useful information.

To convert an SFS to a folder, if you click on it, then copy the contents to a folder. The folder is supposed to be named in format name_version_arch, for example firefox_60.8_amd64

There are Skype SFSs for Puppy, but I haven't converted any of them to Easy SFS format, so don't know if they work.

One thing to be careful about if converting an SFS, /usr/lib64 is a symlink in Easy Pyro, not a folder, so an SFS must also have /usr/lib64 as a symlink.
