I have downloaded "multiarch" .deb file for latest skype and unable to install it on latest version of LMDE (linux mint debian edition Xfce x86_64). e.g

1. step one :
   

        sudo dpkg -i skype-debian_4.1.0.20-1_i386.deb 


   output:

        dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of skype:
        skype depends on libqt4-dbus (>= 4:4.5.3).
        skype depends on libqt4-network (>= 4:4.8.0).
        skype depends on libqt4-xml (>= 4:4.5.3).
        skype depends on libqtcore4 (>= 4:4.7.0~beta1).
        skype depends on libqtgui4 (>= 4:4.8.0).
        skype depends on libqtwebkit4 (>= 2.1.0~2011week13).

2. step two (trying fix broken) :
   

        sudo apt-get install -f

        Building dependency tree

        The following extra packages will be installed:
          libapache2-mod-php5filter
        Suggested packages:
          php-pear
        The following packages will be REMOVED:
          libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cli skype:i386
        The following NEW packages will be installed:
          libapache2-mod-php5filter
        0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 3 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
        1 not fully installed or removed.
        Need to get 0 B/2,663 kB of archives.
        After this operation, 44.9 MB disk space will be freed.

Here my main concern is the way its removing my LAMP related files e.g.:

    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cli skype:i386


I need a way to install skype without upsetting other installed applications.

The `sudo apt-get install -f` just removes and does not fixes the dependencies. 

I'll appreciate if someone write step-wise commands for the installation of skype and while keeping LAMP intact, and explain why the apache and skype are colliding .
