Skype icon disappears in systray

Post by spuzzum »

As the title says, the Skype icon keeps disappearing in my systray.. Mint 17 Cinnamon x64. Googling suggested that it's a common bug. Closing the app then reopening it seems to work, but only for that session. So this gave me an idea.. edit the Skype entry in "Startup Applications" to "startup delay=10" to make it wait before launching. It's been working fine ever since.. even with "start Skype minimized in the system tray" checked. :)
