Hi. I would like to properly prioritize Skype traffic in my router with QoS. Is it possible to configure the policy WebRtcUdpPortRange (described here in the Chromium sandbox used in this Skype version?

FYI: It's working using the Skype web version over Chromium configured with a file called /etc/chromium/policies/managed/webrtc.json with this content:
"WebRtcUdpPortRange": "40000-40030"

Thanks in advance.

The bug I refer to below is fixed today in the updated package xorg-server-xwayland 1.19.2-1 -> 1.19.3-1.

Sometimes starting v5.0.0.5 will crash your entire session if you are running GNOME on Wayland. I wrote a comment about this at

PS: OK, twice I have added the message there and added journal logs showing backtrace etc but the posts get deleted!? PPS next day: Now my 1st post is back today?!

thx for the 5.x update but you should change the package description from Alpha to Beta

Version is out!

@ava1ar, that's why gnome-keyring is an optional dependency of the package.

ava1ar commented on 2017-02-24 14:03

On my machine, it won't autologin unless you have gnome-keyring package installed.

- 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.
