Since Skype is gtk3 based already, how come it run-time depends on gconf? Is it just makedepend?

@bulletmark, I just want to say 'thank you!' for how reliably you have been maintaining the skypeforlinux packages during all that time! Cheers!

@Sven: You can try disabling notifications inside the application or insalling/enabling a notification daemon. Cheers

With any skypeforlinux version so far, I have the problem that skype freezes as soon as I get a message. I had this problem on gentoo, a year ago. And I still have that problem with Arch Linux right now. I dont know what to do. Did anybody have the same problem and find a solution? I'm using the mate desktop environment.

Hi,

I've installed this package and calls work fine, but I'm missing the option to share my screen... I can't really find a solution online though.

I am pleased that with the most recent update, skypeforlinux_8.16.76.8_amd64.deb, my webcam is finally detected by Skype again and works properly. My webcam is a Logitech, Inc. HD Pro Webcam C920

In case anyone else here was experiencing this issue.

@PhotonX: Seems like things are a real mess with gnome-keyring and other DE's.

I managed to store my Skype password using gnome-keyring using the Wiki [1]. First, I installed gnome-keyring, libsecret and seahorse. Then I created a new password keyring (using seahorse) called 'login' (which is needed when using GDM or LightDM to automatically unlock the keyring). After this, I logged in to Skype once, quit the application and re-opened it, and I was still logged in.
