View Full Version : [ubuntu] Skype tray icon appears really slowly

May 18th, 2014, 06:19 PM
I am running Ubuntu 14.04 64bit and I have a problem with skype tray icon. Even if I have installed sni-qt:i386, skype icon in the system tray appears really slowly: to be more clear I will describe the sistuation itself.

If I launch skype it seems that nothing happened untill I click on the dash button, only then the tray icon magically appears. Then, for example, if I change skype status to away or busy, the icon disappears, unless I press the dash icon OR I wait some minutes. I seriously don't understand why. I tried installing both from the software centre and from skype site, and nothing changes. To be honest, the version available on the software centre is even worse, the icons appear even more slowly.

Do you have any idea? I am sorry if I was not clear enough, it's really difficult to describe it.
Thank you so much
