Tecnically, you can't simply install the .deb in the 64-bit system, as
it is for a 32-bit debian. In practice, you can try
--force-architecture (or something similar), but there is no guarantee
that there are packages with the 32-bit libraries that Skype needs,
and even if there are, it might simply not work.
