Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Windows Skype has a feature that when you minimize it while you on a video call, you get a mini video display of the other person. But on Ubuntu I don't have this feature.

Is there an option or a tweak to enable such feature?

We linux users are ill-treated here. Shame on Microsoft. We still use this crappy 4.2 version. I hope we will get an update soon. As far as I know that very essential feature is missing in this version. Not completely sure. Let's wait for the other comments. –  Din May 26 '14 at 18:08
Thats the problem with proprietary software. they almost never think of linux users. I replaced my windows for ubuntu yesterday because of crappy ms errors and slow system. –  Guilherme May 26 '14 at 18:17
