Skype-Wrapper is a small third-party ‘plugin’ that integrates many of Skype’s features directly into the Ubuntu desktop. This includes support for Ubuntu’s Messaging Menu, notification system and Unity launcher. You can install Skype-Wrapper in Ubuntu 12.04/11.10
The new version of Skype-wrapper fixes some small bugs and brings full support for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise , even making some additional features, such as dedicated quicklist.
The new Skype-quicklist Wrapper allows us to make the test call to Skype, add a new contact or close Skype . In the case of new posts, we will find the link in the launcher, the number of unread messages, with the possibility of access to reading with a simple click.
In addition, Skype Wrapper allows us to accept or reject new incoming calls, and if we are busy we can also terminate or withhold the call. In standby mode can reject incoming calls, or decide whether to respond to only a few contacts.
For Unity fans the option to ‘Add a Contact’ has been added to the quicklist, as have a selection of in-call actions:
- Answer/Reject incoming calls
- Hold/End calls when busy
- End calls when put on hold
- Resume/End when you’ve put someone on hold
- Group chat support
- Minimise/refocus Skype easily
- Set Skype Status from Messaging Menu
