    Getting skype to quit in 11.10

    Whenever I sign on to skype and then press quit by right clicking on the application icon and choosing "Quit" the application appears to shut itself down until I see that I am aware of people signing off and onto skype. I try to restart skype but it says there is another instance running. How do I get skype to actually quit when I press "Quit"?

    It seems to clearly be a bug. A short-term fix would be to go into your terminal and type:
    Code:
    killall skype

    I don't know if you did this. Normally when you press quit, Skype stays open and you can see a small icon, on the upper bar. If you right-click on it and scroll down to quit, from there only you can kill the instance.
