I can't reproduce this bug.
Comment 2 Vladimir Potapov 2012-11-28 10:46:27 MSK
1) Install Skype on a new system
2) reboot
3) Skype does not appear in the tray, it will have to manually add in startup

During the last discussion, it was decided that curretly we are not going to fix get-skype package to automatically add skype to startup (one of the reasons i s that it can be ono-trivial for users to remove it from there).

However, we can prepare "skype-autostart" package instead that will add necessary record to /etc/xdg/autostart folder. So if you install this package, skypo will start automatically. If you remove this package, skype won't start during boot.
