Sorry, my bad, but I have a lame excuse: I'm still using Lucid myself
and there it would work. However I just checked the path on Oneiric and
there the librirary is at a different place, so the command would be
instead. Hopefully that works - I can't test it myself because I can't
accept the Skype EULA.

I wouldn't hold my breath ... since Skype is owned by Microsoft now, I
would expect the Linux version of Skype to get even less developer time
