Today, I follow this tutorial Skype Installation in order to install Skype on Fedora 16. In the instruction, the author says that:
touch /usr/bin/skype chmod 755 /usr/bin/skype Open /usr/bin/skype with text editor and add following content: #!/bin/sh export SKYPE_HOME="/opt/skype"
I don't understand the way touch and chmod 755 work together? Not only in this tutorial but some other tutorials I came up with, I also see these two commands go together when installing programs in Linux.
Moreover, I don't know what this line means
Please explain to me. Thanks in advance.
