- Does anybody else have problems with connecting through a proxy server? I have the environment variable https_proxy set and all other applications work well.

- Also, I cannot close skypeforlinux using hotkeys in XMonad.

There is one file left in /opt which is not necessary as it is intended for apt-get based systems. This should be removed IMHO.

@nicholma and @ImNtReal, yes this package should add "conflicts" and "replaces" as I have in my PKGBUILD below.

Should this conflict with aur/skypeforlinux
In the same way atom-editor conflicts with atom-editor-bin and visa versa.

Anybody who can't wait can use my PKGBUILD which builds the latest available skype version as skypeforlinux-bin package. I've set pkgrel=0 so the next update of the formal package (at same or later version) will override this.

Auto login stopped working for me on KDE Plasma 5 (Manjaro) since the latest update. What are the dependencies for it to work?

Is gnome-keyring now needed for this package if you want autologin to work? I am on KDE Plasma 5.

catalin.hritcu commented on 2016-10-13 04:18

@SeeR: I'm successfully using this without gnome-keyring. I'm on MATE, so I don't want GNOME dependencies if they are not really needed.
