So, I did a clean install of gentoo for myself, installed skypeforlinux wihtout any errors, and this is what I get no matter which version is emerged

I looked around the web for a solution, but it seems this is something that is supposed to be fixed by now with latest versions. Also, I didn't have any of these issues on my previous installation, so I have no idea what this is all about. I should notice, that on official forums for skype and just other places there's hardly any solutions to this problem.

hmmm, I think this has something to do with electron, because I'm having the same problem with Ghetto Skype.

oh, that's right, electron is based on chromium (or something), and chromium needs madvise fadvise in the kernel config. That's probably why it doesn't work. I'll check and update this post later.

yeah, nevermind, I just forgot that madvise/fadvise was disabled, so it didn't work because of that. :roll:
lowering the max notification icon size to 20 pixels fixed the tray icon, btw.
There's nothing more cheaper for politicians than human life.
