Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.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 Please don't flag the stable version out of date because you find/read about the later preview version.

@z3ntu, gtk2 was removed on the 30th May. Edited: sorry, may not have pushed the commit until the next update which was today.

@bulletmark: I believe the gtk2 dependency can be removed (see my previous comment)

gnome-keyring must be installed to enable auto-login

People, please don't flag this package out of date without first checking whether I have already updated it here!

@tormen Check your conf with pavucontrol-qt This works -> configuration -> built-in audio -> analog stereo duplex

"ldd /usr/share/skypeforlinux/skypeforlinux | grep gtk" only returns gtk3 so I think the gtk2 dependency can be removed.

@Zendy @R00KIE Same here :(

@oberon2007. That problem has existed for the last 4 updates of preview and the last update of stable. See discussion at and for example.

With latest update (both stable and preview version) I am seeing a weird issue with the tray icon. I have one and a half icons displayed. Same odd behaviour in Xfce and i3. screenshot:
