i use both, the 4.xx linux and the new 5.xx in parallel
mostly I uses that old one, as it is display much terser.
however some things, like transferring files or images are much more
comfortable in the the newÂ one.
for audio call i use the old version, as the new one does not work reliably.
perhaps it is the catch 22 situation you described, that hinders audioc
and alltough the old version is said not to work anymore, it still works
i installed it even on my laptop some two weeks ago.
As skype is not in the ubuntu repositories anymore, I had to use the
ones from debian tough
