I am using Ubuntu 11.10. I logged into Skype (waiting for a call) and then switched to another desktop to do some work. When the call didn't come through as expected, I switched back to the desktop window where Skype was open and I noticed that a Skype call had actually been made to me but I had missed it. There was no Skype ring tone or answer/cancel panel when I was on the different desktop window. Is this a Skype issue or an Ubuntu anomaly?

Could it be that you just missed the ringtone? Have you tried to reproduce it? –  qbi Apr 9 '12 at 21:39
