I would like to use Skype on Tails 4.7 running on a live USB flash drive. I downloaded the RPM file and looked up the installation procedure, but none of rpm, yum, and dnf works ("command not found"). What shall I do? Also, does Tails and the bundled Tor browser allow camera and microphone access?


Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, is based on Debian. It would not use rpms but instead uses debs managed by dpkg.

The recommended method to install new software into Tails is to use the Synaptic Package Manager, though it would appear that Skype has not been packaged by Debian and I am not aware of the best way to install that software.
