    skype problems...

    just upgraded to 11.10, i had a few problems with skype on 11.04, audio requiring app. restart, the 'my video' thumbnail in main video window causing an odd glitch (blocking out video on whole x-axis section of the thumbnail while repeating it from an upper section of the main vid window. EXTREMELY annoying, never found a fix) but with a fresh upgrade, the skype notification icon hasnt shown up in my top bar(by the upgrade, battery, volume, etc.), sys-tray equivalent

    TL;DR skype notification icon not present, how do make it appear?

    Please wait 24 hours before bumping.

    Have your tried dropping the Skype icon in there or right clicking and adding it?

    "please wait 24 hours.." noted, still new to the forums =p

    right clicking was the first thing i did, nothing.
    just tried drag and drop, icon wouldnt even come out of the dock probably cause ive switched to ubuntu 2d because ubuntu is messing up, i believe it has something to do with this error message:


    E: Type ' sudo' is not known on line 59 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list

    E: The list of sources could not be read.


    happens every time i try to update through terminal via ' sudo apt-get update', or in update manager.
    I need to get that fixed before anything else

    Yes, you do. Should be the subject of a new thread but seeing as we're here:

    Could you paste your /etc/apt/sources.list here, please? (Specifically line 59.)

    Code:

    ****sudo apt-get update
    Get rid of the two lines in bold. Then:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: skype problems...

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    Remove the two lines I put in bold. Press 'x' then 'y'. Then run:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    The non-terminal way to do this is go to Update Manager, click 'Settings' at bottom left, click the 'Other Software' tab.

    You should find those 'sudo' lines you need to delete there. Simply untick them.
