    Hello everyone,

    From past day I am trying to get Skype indicator on top right tray of my screen.

    I tried the below command to install indicator:

    sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386 
    

    And restarted system, but it didn't worked.

    Some says, I have to uninstall Chrome to get indicator.

    But I need chrome browser too along with the indicator.

    I am using UBUNTU 14.04

  • Hello Sachin,

    If you want to add skype indicator First run the below command on your terminal-

    sudo apt-get update
    

    This command will download and update your packages you requires.

    After this run the below command:

    sudo apt-get install libappindicator1
    

    after this run the command you mentioned, and shown below

    sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386

    Now Go to Top right of skype screen click on Skype----> Options-----> notification

    Now at the bottom check the check box Display built-in System Pop-up Notification

    and Restart the system.

    Doing this Notification icon will appear on top right of home screen.

    Thats it.

  • It seems that the skype is not in the white list for the panel. Install dconf-tools using

    sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
    

    then run dconf from dash and you can find the white listed applications under

    Desktop>unity>panel

    you would find entry for systray-whitelist, just add skype to this list and then restart.

    Hope this works for you.
