How to Add and control Skype via the Ubuntu Messaging Menu


A day or two back we ran a nifty how-to feature on controlling Skype from your instant messaging application in Ubuntu 11.04.

This approach integrated your Skype contacts into your Empathy or Pidgin buddy list, but also told you how to 'hide' the lurid green icon from the system tray.

Whilst many of you found this a neat tip a number of you weren't so keen to give up easy access to Skype itself and sought something a little less final - such as adding Skype to the Ubuntu Messaging Menu.
