    5. well it does not work on 32-bit, or I do not know how to make it work! Following the procedure, I get when running the dnf install command (or the yum localinstall), the following message : “Can not load RPM file: /tmp/skype/skypeforlinux-64.rpm.”
      Any suggestion ?

    6. As you show, latest skype for linux installs easily on Centos 7.4

      but having installed it, neither of my microphones work. Skype recognizes the mic in my webcam, but it outputs no audio to the remote connection. I also have a Plantronics USB headset that I’d rather use, and skype fails completely to even admit it exists.

      Any advice on this issue?

      thanks in advance!

      • Hi Fred,

        Is your mic(s) working normally with another apps? What you see if you check your Audio -> Input settings?
