    Question Hiding Skype status icon

    Hi,
    I was just wondering if and how it were possible to hide the Skype status icon in Unity 2D with 12.04LTS. I have installed skype-wrapper, and I would like to hide the status icon as it now feels unnecessary. I have googled a bit and advice seems to be to uninstall sni-qt, which I don't really want to do...

    So my question basically is this: is there an easy way to hide the icon, or if not, are there better solutions out there than skype-wrapper for integrating Skype into the desktop?

    I have tried pidgin-skype, but it doesn't work with Empathy for some reason. An ideal solution for me would be to use Skype from within Empathy rather than from the Skype application itself. This would be better than just hiding the icon, but since pidgin-skype doesn't seem to work I don't know if that's possible.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions

    Just to say that since, after a while, skype-wrapper started being erratic, I've uninstalled it. Therefore the Skype status icon is once more important, and I don't need to hide it any more.
