I encoutered the same problems, I uninstalled the .deb
skype version, broken package. The only way out I
found was to run Skype with Qt compiled-in.
It works great now, this way (despite it takes hours
to launch). As far as I can remember, I had to install
other libraries to make skype work properly and manage
the problem with OSS sound sys. it was unable to use
the sound device.
