Installing Skype on Ubuntu / Kubuntu 12.04 / 12.10 and other flavors of Ubuntu is easy, even though it's not in the official repos.

Head to the official Skype website - -> Get skype -> Skype for Linux -> Download -> select the package for Ubuntu that suits your architecture - there are packages for (K/X)Ubuntu 32-bit and (K/X)Ubuntu 64-bit.
In short, here is the link to get Skype for linux (there are packages for some other distros, as well).

Download the package, double-click -> install. The package manager will pull down all the dependencies and will install Skype on your Ubuntu system.
