I wasn't lucky with all of the Google help so I came here. I installed the latest version of Skype on my Kali 2020 with sudo dpkg -i skypeforlinux-64.deb, and it all went correctly and installed with no errors whatsoever. However, no matter how many times I press the Skype icon, it launches (just the loading bar) and then it disappears. Does somebody have any assumptions of what is wrong with my Skype? I would really appreciate help. Thank You anyway.
For just the purpose of installing Skype in Kali OS :
- Install Snapd via this process.
- Install Skype by
sudo snap install skype --classic
Installing via snap will ensure regular updates and modularity of packages. Besides Snap has a ton of other packages that you may need.
As for uninstalling the dpkg install, follow this tutorial.
Hope this resolves your problem.
