I have found instructions here:
"4. Install using PlayOnLinux
Click 'Install a program' and then 'install a non-listed program' in the bottom left corner.
Choose 'Install a program in a new virtual drive'. Name the drive something like 'skype184.108.40.206'.
Check 'use another version of Wine' and 'Configure Wine'. And click next.
Select Wine 1.9.1 and click next. [I have Wine 2.1]
Select 32-bits windows installation and click next. [My machine is 64-bits. Is it necessary to say only 32 bits here?]
The Wine configuration Window appears after a few seconds. At the bottom of the Window, select Windows 8.1 and click 'ok'. [Is it necessary to use only Win 8.1?]
Back to the PlayOnLinux window: click 'Browse' and select the Skype installer you just downloaded. Click next.
Follow the Skype installer.
Select Skype.exe and click next to create a shortcut. Give the shortcut a name and click next again to finish the installation.
Click the Skype icon in the main PlayOnLinux window and click configure. In the general tab, add following to the Arguments field. Click another field so the arguments field is saved. (replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your credentials).
/legacylogin /username:USERNAME /"
I get as far as "click next"
There is no next in the PlayonLinux window.
The more I click the Chinese boxes of files, I get to a file called "control" When I highlight this and go back to the PlayonLinux window there is a "next" but it does not seem as if "control" is the right file.
If I click next with the control file selected PlayonLinux asks me to select a file for PlayonLinux to make a short cut. None of the files is skype.exe, so I have not opportunity to add the code provided above.
I am finding no file named "skype.exe"
Any assistance appreciated.
