  • To determine the version of the Linux kernel, use `uname -a`. Determining your distribution is a bit trickier, but here are some commands you can try:

    • cat /etc/os-release
    • lsb_release -a
    • cat /etc/issue

    Once you've figure out your distribution, you might want to check for skype in the distribution's repositories. It might be easier to install it from the repo using your package manager.
