I've searched for a solution for quit some time now but without any success. To the problem, I can't get rid of the (in my opinion) very ugly Skype icon in the system tray. Ironicly it seams like most people have the opposite problem...
Anyway, I installed skype following this guide:
Essentially the guide says, type:
then:Code:sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
Since then I've removed Skype, purged Skype, reinstalled Skype using the .deb available at skype's website, reseted unity and finally checked that Skype is not in my systemtray-whitelist, which btw i set to default ['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'Update-notifier']. Nothing seams to help.Code:sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype
I run the 64bit version of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and am now out of ideas.
Thanks for the help!
