in kde environment randomly skype asks for gnome keyring password or silently fails connection even if all is well set to unlock gnome keyring during login process.

see how to unlock gnome keyring during login process https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...ment(-gt-sddm)

i wrote a bug report https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1125686

my solution :

- i use web.skype.com
- i use chrome to create a desktop app with web.skype.com
- i use kdocker to minimize in the systray the desktop app.
- i put a script in kde settings > startup & shutdown > autostart according to start the desktop app

see the general way to proceed https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...app-in-systray

my script to start web skype on demand dock_skype_ondemand.sh :

Code:
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --profile-directory=Default --app=https://web.skype.com
while [ true ]
do
   sleep 5
   status=$(wmctrl -l | grep "Skype")
   if [ "$status" != "" ] ; then
      break
   fi
done
WID="$(wmctrl -lx | grep "Skype")"; kdocker -qtw "${WID%% *}" -i ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/chrome-pakpgkfddlphnhhpjailhknmgghmephf-Default.png
you must adapt ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/chrome-pakpgkfddlphnhhpjailhknmgghmephf-Default.png

you must replace "pakpgkfddlphnhhpjailhknmgghmephf" by the one created by chrome in your case.



my script to start web skype during login process dock_skype_startup.sh :

sleep 1m 45s

you must replace "pakpgkfddlphnhhpjailhknmgghmephf" by the one created by chrome in your case.

you must adapt the delay "sleep 1m 45s" to wait before starting up web skype to your case. to avoid problems web skype must be started after all apps in the systray.
