I have my Skype running, but everytime I close it, it stay running in background (as it should) but I cant open the windows again. I do a

ps aux | grep skype

and Skype is running, so for now I use a sudo kill and reopen it again.

I know that in Debian the background services can be accessed at the bottom right of the screen, but here I don't know how to access the Skype window again!

  • you need to reopen it from the taskbar in the upper right (assuming you use Unity), if you dont see the skype icon there please run sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386 and then restart your computer

As @zalgo proposed, the solution is to run sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386 and then restart your computer.
