Skype on debian Wheezy amd 64

Here are is what I did for installing skype on debian wheezy 64 bit.

 1) Enable 32 bit repositories
  
# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt-get update
 
 2 Install  libpulse from i386 repository
 
   
# apt-get install libpulse0:i386
 
 
Download skype from skype.com. Choose debian wheezy package (multiartch) 


# dpkg -i skype-debian_4.2.0.11-1_i386.deb

The package will fail to configure.
 
Install the dependencies by 

 #apt-get install -f


Done :)
