Better download it from the official skype page as you will get the latest version which integrates windows live messenger as well.
Choose ubuntu 12.04 multiarch.

There is only one drawback (which will be fixed in later releases). You cannot send a file from skype to wlm (and vice versa). Both persons must run on Skype.

Other than that, you can chat perfectly between skype and wlm.
