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.

Some further reading regarding gnome-keyring in non-Gnome environments: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/users-are-choosing-to-store-secrets-in-plain-text-due-to-the-gnome-key-ring-spamming-them/40124/10

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.

Ah, I thought I read that somewhere. I'm not using a DE, only a simple window manager, so how does it work?

EDIT: nevermind, see above.

I'm on GNOME, reboot at least every day, and update to every skype preview version. I can't even remember when I last had to log in to skype.

@Marcel_K: That cannot be. I am using the same version of Skype on Solus OS with the Budgie desktop and here autologin works fine. I don't have to retype my credentials again and again.

Marcel_K commented on 2018-02-12 17:53

As far as I can tell autologin (or simply remembering your credentials) is not possible with the current Skype.

Can anybody get autologin working in Skype on KDE Plasma 5? Everytime I log into my Arch Linux box and I start Skype it never seems to remember my credentials and I have to type them in again. I have gnome-keyring installed as well and I am using SDDM as my login manager.
