Skype on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric 64 Bit does not work! Here's how to solve the problem

A lot of the applications used by users Linux is Skype the famous application with which we can call anywhere in the world for free or very cheap rates through Voip technology.
We have received several reports indicating that Skype was not present in version 64bit the repository Canonical Partner 11.10  Oneiric (For 32bit it is present) and those who installed the package for the previous release was the error libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

The problemhas been reported toalready several weeks we hope to be resolved as soon as possible, while we can still install Skype version 64bit for Natty installing some packages for 32bit after installation. Here's how:

If you still need to install Skype for 64bit enough that you start the terminal and type;

wget http://archive.canonical.com/pool/partner/s/skype/skype_2.2.0.35-0natty1_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

sudo apt-get install -f
Always at this point from the terminal type:
echo foreign-architecture i386 | sudo tee /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch

sudo apt-get install libxss1:i386 libqtcore4:i386 libqt4-dbus:i386

sudo apt-get install libqtgui4:i386
and we will have our Skype on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric 64 Bit fully functional.
