    Skype Tray Icon

    Anyone else ever have the issue with Skype that there's never any System Tray Icon? Meaning when you "exit" the program and it's supposed to go to the tray, you can open it back up. If you click on the Launcher Icon, it says the program is already running.

    Just run this in terminal >> sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386

    There is also the better option of skype-wrapper that will nicely integrate Skype into your messaging menu, and thus there's no need to have its icon in the tray.
