But isn't skype-ubuntu_188.8.131.52-1_amd64.deb supposed to be a 64 bit version?
For which reason it requires 32 bit libraries when those libraries are available in 64 bit?
Skype is working and not crashing so much, but I still can't send messages to my friends. I get the yellow exclamation mark..In one instance my friend was able to send me a message but it's the only excemption. I can't send any messages to my friends anymore at all.. Is there a fix for this?

It worked for me too: Ubuntu 11.10, 32 (I just deinstall skype and install skype using the synaptic).

The commands installed these files OK
sudo apt-get install libqt4-core:i386
sudo apt-get install libqt4-gui:i386
sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-3:i386
sudo apt-get install libxss1:i386
returned E: Unable to locate package libxss1:i386
No big deal tho, Skype now runs OK
Ah, the mysteries of Linux, how I love them
Anyhow, thanx for your help
I have Ubuntu 11.10. Today I downloaded Skype 2.2 Beta for Linux for Ubuntu 10.4+ 32-bit (the latest supported version available). At first clicking on the icon on the launcher did not bring about anything.
After having gone to the terminal, having typed sudo -i skype and having given my (Linux) user password it works perfectly, whether I use start the application with the Launcher or with the Dash Home.
Hope this helps
