To get automatic login, install a package that provides org.freedesktop.secrets, e.g. gnome-keyring.

To get a systray icon, install libappindicator-gtk3. On GNOME, then install https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/615/appindicator-support/.

Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.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 is always a later version than the stable version. PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THE STABLE VERSION OUT OF DATE WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS!

This package depends on pulseaudio-alsa, for pulseaudio users. Since it's default nowadays, it'd be good to have a mention here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=233566

Is there a way to disable auto-login when starting skype? I don't want my skype password to be saved and automatically used to login.

Latest stable version is 8.15.0.4. Please update.

@friday13, please clarify what you mean by "the wrong version number"?

friday13 commented on 2018-02-04 01:44

the wrong version number. Please check.

@Stempit, it looks wrong to require a GNOME package for what should be a DE agnostic application and I note that Skype/Microsoft do not include gnome-keyring as a requirement in the debian package so I am reluctant to force add it sorry.

Stempit commented on 2018-02-01 13:06

@bulletmark thank you for your work!

Can you add gnome-keyring to requirements, please? Without this package skype wants login and password on each start.

Thanks for your work! It's pretty excellent!

nbulat, you too just flagged this package as out of date but quoted the wrong version number. Please check before flagging!
