After I reinstalled Ubuntu, I have the newest skype version installed now. And now I keep getting notifications at the right bottom corner, who came online, who went offline. I would like to get rid of these notifications, butt the problem is that problem is that at Options>notifications there is no such options like to turn off or on who came and who went out. What can I do about this? any skype parts missing or something?

  • i'm not sure if thats an askubuntu question, but anyway... You have a notification menu on skype options. just disable them there

  • To be honest, I scrolled up and down, maybe 10 times, and I didn't see "contact went offline" and "contact appeared online". It is me who should apologize for the question. Just need to keep my eyes open next time

First open your Skype. If it's minimized in the systrem tray, click it and select activate. Activate

Next into your Skype window, click on skype menu and then options

Go to the notification area.

Find contact came online and contact went offline and uncheck Display pop-up notification (and sound if you'd like).

Apply and you are done.
