Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.

Note that AUR package skypeforlinux-stable-bin is the version Microsoft release as their "stable" version. AUR package skypeforlinux-preview-bin is the version Microsoft release as their preview version and will always be a later version than the stable version.

Some conversations is invisible. Will them has been update?

Whenever it starts and tries to login, I need to give my admin password for it to continue logging in.
It's very frustrating knowing it comes from a PRISM'd company like Microsoft.

Any fix for this ? No other version of Skype needs admin password just to login

EDIT : it's just the key to unlock the computer's gnome-keyring, it's a local configuration issue, nothing to deal with the application.

I would suggest for the source URL:
It is better in my opinion, as it is more consistent with the package name and package version.

This requires libgnome-keyring but not gnome-keyring, and I think it might need the actual gnome-keyring package to work, which I don't have installed. The debtap translated version DID install gnome-keyring, which might be why it worked.

Think I'm just still going to use "chromium" though.

I just got home, and was finally able to test without being behind a web proxy. Works fine for me. Are you still having trouble connecting?

gourdcaptain commented on 2016-07-13 21:25

Yeah, I get the same "Cannot connect to Skype" error with it. Got it working earlier today (although it's not great even then, IMHO) with debtap after modding the .install file heavily, so it's probably an issue wth the packaging here.

Does anyone get a "Sorry we couldn't connect to Skype" error when running it?

Actually, it is, but it is working. Thanks for the package.
