I have tried allowing Skype to show up in the systray by running:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'scp-dbus-service', 'Update-notifier', 'Skype']"

I also attempted to do:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"

Both of the times I restarted Skype afterwards. Any ideas?

I have experienced this problem on my laptop, and my solution was to simply reinstall Skype (i386) from the Ubuntu Software Center.

  • Thanks, yes, reinstalling Skype fixed this issue for me. – Tom Oct 23 '11 at 13:30

Skype now has an app-indicator in Ubuntu 11.10, so you don't need to whitelist it. Maybe removing Skype from the systray whitelist will get the indicator to kick in?

This resolved itself for me for no obvious reason.
