Install skype on Kali Linux

Posted by lapaginadefran on May 25, 2014 at 9:45 AM

For those who need to install skype on Kali Linux, here goes a script based on these instructions and others. The idea is to generate an uninstall script too, which will be specially usefull if you are using 64 bits version of Kali as I am doing:


num_version=$(lsb_release -rs | awk '{print $3}')

apt-get update

apt-get install gdebi -y

dpkg --add-architecture i386

apt-get update


dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall | cut -f1 > before_install

apt-get update

gdebi skype-debian_4.2.0.13-1_i386.deb

echo "#!/bin/bash\

" > uninstall_skype_kali-$

sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall | cut -f1 > after_install

diff before_install after_install | grep '>' | awk '{print $2}' | sed -e :a -e N -e 's/\n/ /g' -e ta \

| sed 'i\sudo apt-get remove --purge\' | sed -e :a -e N -e 's/\n/ /g' -e ta >> uninstall_skype_kali-$

echo "dpkg -r skype

sudo apt-get autoremove -y

sudo apt-get autoclean

dpkg --remove-architecture i386" >> uninstall_skype_kali-$

chown $USER:$USER uninstall_skype_kali-$

chmod u+x uninstall_skype_kali-$

rm before_install after_install
