I'm not sure if it's related, but when installing the 32-bit version of Skype on my 16.04LTS 64-bit system, Skype, which is only available in 32-bit, did not retrieve my ongoing conversations. Even worse! The discussion groups were invisible, and I couldn't see the messages being sent to me (I could hear the notifications on Skype phone, but not on desktop).To fix this, I found an interesting page that helped me out with two commands:

This installation was tested on Ubuntu 15.01 but could be used for a debian production server. SuPhp has not been maintained for a few years now, so it is no longer in the repositories of recent distributions, and it has become difficult to compile it on a 4.x kernel (which is my case, since my transition to Ubuntu 15.10).

To install Skype, it is preferable to use the Ubuntu repository, which will install everything needed to manage sound and video properly. If you take the package available on the official website, it is likely that the sound will not be managed properly.1 – Install Skype: sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:andykimpe/skype && sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype2 – Install the wrapper: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skype-wrapper/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype-wrapper
