I use Cinnamon with the proprietary AMD drivers. I love being able to have an auto-hiding task bar, but whenever Skype is in use, the task bar hide and unhide animation becomes very glitchy for me, with a broken pixelated screen for a second. I've determined the problem is most likely due to the skype indicator in the tray, but my attempts to remove it have still left the blank space where it was, and the problem persisted. I don't need this indicator, as it has never worked very well to begin with and stands out compared to the rest of the black-and-grey icons in the tray. Is there a proper way to disable it in Cinnamon? A solution to the screen glitching itself is even better, but the only thread I've been able to find regarding it did not contain a solution, so I'm not expecting one.
