I can run with both the static build or the (im)properly installed .deb, but be
warned, both the static build and the properly installed build take over a
minute to start up on my P4 3.2 GHZ machine with 2GB ram, so be patient after
you hit enter. :)

You can install the .deb with:

sudo dpkg --ignore-depends libqt3c102-mt -i skype_1.2.0.17-1_i386.deb

it's up to you. I'm running the static build until Skype's .deb packages are
fixed, then I'll install them properly.

Take care,
