Question apt-get dependency problem (with skype)


I'm on a kubuntu (breezy) box.

I installed skype (using dpkg). It had a dependency on libqt that I had to force it to skip, because the libqt installed here has another name.. in other workds, it's OK, but apt-get thinks there's a missing dependancy.... so, I asked for apt-get upgrade and it says it has to remove skype.

What can I do to keep this from happening?

But it's not a file missing dependency.... but a package dependency.

Code:
skype: Depends: libqt3c102-mt (>= 3:3.3.3.2) but it's not installable
That precise package is not in the repositories... but libqt3-mc... which is already installed.

More precisely build from source changing the Depends line in the control file located in the debian directory of the unpacked source.

I made a mistake , it was not a source code , I downloaded "Static binary tar.bz2 with Qt 3.2 compiled in" from the site
I don't have any trouble with it

But with .deb package , I have the same dependency problem

Regards
