No Skype 4.2 (64 bit) for Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit ???

Skype

[Update: Jan 04, 2013 5:06 AM: Somebody told me that, Skype 4.2 (64 bit) was never released!

Then why this file is there on Launchpad.net?

https://launchpadlibrarian.net/145815051/skype_4.2.0.11-0ubuntu0.12.04.2_amd64.deb

Only possible solution is to install the 32 bit version of skype and 32 bit version of libv4l-0 library.

To see how to do it see this post:

How to libv4l-0 32 bit version of in Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit ]

Jan 02, 2014 00:29 AM: Last 24 hours i have been scraping through the internet just to find a way.

No matter what i do, my skype is always compiled 32 bit even though i download a 64 bit version, and my Ubuntu is 64 bit. Even i enabled the multiarch thing.

Now i give up. God knows what is the problem.

It started because the webcam upside down problem has occurred again for me and found out that skype is 32 bit.
