Spotify: Skype: If you have no Skype icon, run this command: sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386 and then ...

You are getting instructions to take two actions: Use apt-get autoremove to remove them. So do a sudo apt-get autoremove. This isn't likely the root of your problem but it sure looks like your packages are a bit out of whack. Perhaps an install failed partway through and left garbage?

The solution by Takkat was not working for me, here is my solution for anyone still having a problem with this. There were two issues for me with the solution by Takkat. First, I realised that there needs to be a delay after startup before the switch to the microphone can take place (I use the command 'sleep' in my solution below). Also, the command ...

As part of Skype's move to a cloud-based architecture, pictures sent via chat are now uploaded to the cloud. All of our Skype clients are currently moving to this new cloud-based architecture, and once we ...

Googled up a respective Launchpad bug: "shuffled keys in keyboard buffer". People replace iBus with SCIM: sudo apt-get remove ibus && sudo apt-get install scim. I am personally cautious, as ubuntu-desktop depends on ibus.

It seems Google Chrome is not as good as it was only four months ago. Not many months ago, perhaps August of last year, back when Firefox became hopelessly problematic, I became an outspoken advocate of using the Google Chrome browser.
