I uninstalled Skype thru terminal using sudo purge command but still getting notifications about who is online/offline and chat messages.

How to get rid of it?

I had this trouble too.

When I would log out of Skype on Ubuntu I would still get notifications. I decided to uninstall the program.

After running sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove skype:i386 I was finding that I could still get notifications.

I ran ps aux | grep skype to see what running processes I still had. And I saw one running process. I killed that process with kill process# and restarted and have not seen any notifications.
