Differences from the skypeforlinux-bin package:
- Use system Electron package rather than bundled one
- Rebuild Node.js modules from sources
- Support i686 architecture

@City-busz, don't know. Now u can debug (if u want:).

City-busz commented on 2017-02-05 15:07

@k0ste: libappindicator should not needed. If it doesn't work, then it's a bug in Electron or Plasma.

k0ste commented on 2017-02-05 12:40

libappindicator-gtk2 - need for tray menu (lxde)
libappindicator-gtk3 - same, for plasma 5.
