Hi John. Yes, the issue that once it is installed it only appears in
the technical items must be something that USC can fix. I'll ask
Rodney if he can take a look. All I see is that it should appear as it
has a desktop file:

michael-X201EP# ~/tmp/skype
$ dpkg --contents skype-ubuntu-precise_4.2.0.13-1_i386.deb | grep desktop
-rw-r--r-- root/root 249 2013-12-18 19:52
./usr/share/applications/skype.desktop

Yes, this is unrelated to USC, as you say. On an amd64 system, there
is no 'skype' package installed after installing the downloaded deb,
only 'skype:i386', so the partner version is still ready to be
installed (http://paste.ubuntu.com/6908092/).
