Using Skype on Ubuntu

A few days ago, I struggled to use Skype on Linux to have a conversation with a friend in New Zealand. Before you ask, it wasn't the beer but the audio inputs and outputs on my Thinkpad T60p (2007-AE7).

Today, I re-installed Skype 2.0.0.72 on a clean installation of Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid", and took the time out to document the key points, including how to set up the audio so that I can actually make a call.

Hope this helps.

*UPDATE* And here is the actual document *UPDATE*
