I am using Skype for Linux Beta on Kubuntu 14.4. Until recently I was able to press the "close" button and Skype would be minimized to the system tray (little icon). Meaning it would not be in the task bar as a minimized window. How can I do this in the new version?

  • If there isn't an option to enable this feature then it cannot be done in the new version. You can always roll back to the previous version, at least until, that version can no longer be used to connected to the Skype network. – Ramhound Sep 7 '17 at 15:55
  • One can use wmctrl -c Skype to minimise Skype automatically, after it booted up. So, just edit the startup script to call wmctrl as well. – Atcold Jan 11 '18 at 15:08
  • See How do I start skype in the system tray? question at AskUbuntu, which has an answer which worked for me. – Ruslan Jun 27 '18 at 20:38
