Skype configuration was easier than the standard Ekiga Softphone. Once installed access Skype by going to Applications/Internet/Skype. Agree to the license.
Create an account. Be sure to use a real email.

Skype on AMD 64 -bit System
The only way I can see to get this to work is to install the 3-bit libraries.
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2
Download the software.
Unfortunately you will need to force the install. This is not the best option by any means, you should know there is some risk,....be sure you have a backup.
sudo dpkg -i --force-all skype-install.deb
