I was already download skype 4 from official website(.deb)

When i double click and trying to install it with Software Center it trying to download it from the internet. (and i guess the older version)

Because im new in ubuntu - that behavior totally strange for me. So... why it acting like that and how to install that version from official website?

  1. Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T

  2. Go to the folder where you downloaded the .deb file, most probably in Downloads, with cd Downloads

  3. Type sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu and press Tab to automatically fill in the full filename.

  4. Press Enter, and your password when asked, and Skype should be installed.

If you are missing the status icon in the panel, please see this question for a solution.

How do I get the Skype status icon back? (on panel/tray)
