Hi. I would like to properly prioritize Skype traffic in my router with QoS. Is it possible to configure the policy WebRtcUdpPortRange (described here https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3#WebRtcUdpPortRange) 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 https://community.skype.com/t5/Linux/Skype-5-0-for-Linux-Beta-is-here/m-p/4610798/highlight/true#M17800

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 5.0.0.5 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.

Hi,

- 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.

Thanks!

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.
