Share screen has been disabled since I installed it from Software Manager in Linux MInt 17 -Qiana
My boss also does not have this ability in Ubuntu 14.x (pretty certain he runs latest LTS).

Skype "support" is useless saying wait for the next release but doesn't specify when that is.

I've tried everything, literally.
New user, "new" .config, "new" .Skype, additional groups, Disabling Skype Video (I have no webcam).

Not sure it''ll help you help me but here's an ldd on the binary:
