Re: Easy third-party package installer for debian-based distributions

OK, may be an overkill.

But what happens with your solution if skype depends on libskype, which
is not available from debian's repository ?The user has to download
several .debs in order to install a single software ?

Skype should set up their own Debian repository and tell people to add it
to /etc/apt/sources.list.  It's not exactly hard.

Agreed. And if they HAVE to have some kind of one click installer, make
a small script.

echo "http://whatever/path/to/repository"; >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get install skype
