Ubuntu version in both 32 & 64 bit. Might be worth a try since you are having 
issues with the repository version. 

Actually, the 64 bit package of skype is really a 32 binary  that requires you 
to install of *all* the 32bit compatibility libraries, all 217 of them. The 
one in the Partner repo only installs the ones needed for skype.
