Fix Skype Linux not auto logging in

Published by arifur on

Skype for Linux Alpha depends on [c]gnome-keyring [/c]and [c]libgnome-keyring0[/c] packages for storing credentials. Both of these packages are installed as a dependency for the Skype for Linux Alpha package.

  • Without the libgnome-keyring0 the application won’t start. If you encounter this problem, make sure this package is installed.
  • If after each launch the application still asks for credentials this means that either the [c]gnome-keyring[/c] package is not installed on your system or that the [c]gnome-keyring-daemon[/c] is not started. Make sure these two conditions are met.

So to make Skype remember the login details install these packages [c]libgnome-keyring[/c] and [c]gnome-keyring[/c]


sudo pacman -S gnome-keyring libgnome-keyring


sudo apt install gnome-keyring libgnome-keyring-common
