Annoying Skype forced upgrade on Linux

Skype forces you to upgrade…. fortunately there is a quick “fix”

ver=$(echo “4.2.0.11” | xxd -p | sed ‘s/.\{2\}/&\\x/g;s/^/\\x/;s/\\x0a\\x//’); echo “sudo sed -i \”s/$ver/\x34\x2E\x33\x2E\x30\x2E\x33\x37/g\” /usr/bin/skype”

Here is a link for old Debian Skype 4.2.0.11 in case it is needed    skype

Just rename it to skype.deb and install

Works.
