Skype seems to mess with the kmix tray icon during a call. When I'm not calling the kmix panel shows up as usual:

while during a call it is completely blank:

https://basket.fi.infn.it:443/f/3009d84577/?dl=1

This makes me unable to adjust input/output, e.g. redirect output to the headset. This happens only with skype and only during a call. Anyone with the same problem and/or with some suggestion? Thanks.

@robwy I also have the STARTUP_LOAD_ERROR and I have Kwallet running properly

Here they point out that in app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/ there is a folder called @paulcbetts which given the leading @ creates problems. Can that be related?

The STARTUP_LOAD_ERROR error on startup can happen if libsecret cannot find a DBus service to handle credential storage (such as KWallet or GNOME keyring). You must either enable one of these services, or patch skypeforlinux to use an alternative credential storage method.

Here are some pointers if you want to patch skypeforlinux:
The relevant data is stored in /usr/share/skypeforlinux/resources/app.asar
This archive can be unpacked/packed with asar - https://github.com/electron/asar
Skype uses keytar to connect to libsecret - https://github.com/atom/node-keytar

EDIT: I tested the above with Skype 8.11.76.8

Every-time i launch it, i get an error message :
Oops, there was a problem with skype.
STARTUP_LOAD_ERROR
I must click to "Sign out" and retype my login/password.

Doesn't work for me. With headphones attached the test call seems to work from the settings menu, but when calling someone it notifies that audio device has failed and there is no sound. Seems to work with builtin speakers and mic however (with some lags in sound). 8.11.76.3-1

Doesn't work for me, it starts up. Let's me login + password. But then infinite loading (light blue) screen with 2 CPU's doing 100%.(8.11.76.3-1)

Version 8.11.76.3-1 works good for me. No white screen! I had the white screen issue on earlier builds.

@Techman35 and others: I requested to restore the skypeforlinux-beta-bin package and it is now available again, sorry for the chaos! :)
