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Please don't post here (or on any other AUR packages) about out of date versions. Use the "Flag package out-of-date" link at the top. Also, BEFORE flagging this package out of date please check that it has not already been updated here to the new version.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 PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THE STABLE VERSION OUT OF DATE WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS!

If somebody wants, you can also try removing 4 GL libs that gets installed with Skype because they seem to duplicate libglvnd ones. I do not guarantee Skype remains stable because I don't know reasons MS included them (they could've added some patches on top of it), but it works for me so far.

Listing the libs:

pacman -Ql skypeforlinux-stable-bin | perl -lane 'print @F[1] if /lib.*GL.*so$/'

Removing them:

sudo rm $(pacman -Ql skypeforlinux-stable-bin | perl -lane 'print @F[1] if /lib.*GL.*so$/')

If something goes wrong, just reinstall the package.

@maep, that it a makedepends so not really. However, to be honest I am not sure that icon manipulation stuff is needed in recent versions. I notice my tray icon looks fine without it now so I will remove it and see if anybody complains(!).

Wow, really? I don't even have a notification tray for Skype!

maep commented on 2020-04-30 22:36

Would it be possible to make asar optional? It pulls in nodejs just to fiddle with tray icon size.

@bulletmark, If you install libappindicator-gtk3 the system tray gets broken. You can't rise most of the programs with single click. You have to right click and chose Open "app" which is annoying.

@bulletmark, I still do not understand why not add one of the workarounds in order to avoid problems for a fairly large percentage of users. For example this one: ln -sf /usr/lib/chromium/chrome-sandbox /usr/share/skypeforlinux/chrome-sandbox Checking whether chrome is installed or not.
