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 the appindicator extension.

Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.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 PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THE STABLE VERSION OUT OF DATE WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS!

Guys, apparently you are getting an "out of date" notification for Skype stable version but note that version is still the latest so there is nothing I can update to. Skype version notifications just seem to be broken atm. A similar problem is occurring for the preview version (see

@Hi-Angel, thanks for the advice! I upgraded my system (along with Skype) and now it works like a charm!

@maximaman I just upgraded to and it runs fine for me. I think it's something on your side. From cursory googling on similar problems, I'd suggest you to try removing skype, upgrade the system, and install skype back. These are steps that usually fixed similar errors for peoples on the internet.

Version fails to start with the following message appearing in ~/.config/skypeforlinux/logs/skype-startup.log:

Inconsistency detected by ../sysdeps/x86_64/dl-machine.h: 541: elf_machine_rela_relative: Assertion `ELFW(R_TYPE) (reloc->r_info) == R_X86_64_RELATIVE' failed!

Thanks. It worked when I did it manually. Maybe it just didn't like yay.

@pescepalla Everything compiles here.

I'm getting an error:

error fetching skypeforlinux-stable-bin: fatal: not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /) Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).

Is it just me?

In theory, since version we should be able to change the background with an image ( but the only option that I see is only to blur it. Anyone knows if this feature is available in GNU/Linux? Reading the changelog, I understand that yes...

Okay, I found how to disable global shortcuts

Tools → Settings → General → × Enable global shortcuts

Hi-Angel commented on 2020-05-20 07:08

Does anybody know how to fix this: after upgrading to version I stumbled upon a regression: if I have a call and use <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>e</kbd> while skype is not focused, I get disconnected from the call. So, basically everytime I'm trying to do something in background while having a call, I all the time get disconnects.

edit: I posted a question on forum
