Skype 2 on Debian AMD64

I've got this info from here.

When trying to use a static version of Skype 2.x (in my case Skype does not start and complains with a message:
./skype: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
In order to start Skype you will need to get 32 bit libXss.

# create a temporary directory
mkdir temp
cd temp

# download libxss1 (if this version is
# unavailable try choose another version
# for i386 architecture)

# extract the files
dpkg -x libxss1_1.1.3-1_i386.deb .

#copy the extracted files to /usr/lib32
cd usr/lib/
sudo cp libXss.* /usr/lib32/


Running Skype in Debian might require some additional 32 bit libraries, but this one was the only one required for me to upgrade working Skype 1.x to Skype 2.x.
