Today I received a notice stating that older versions of Skype (4.3 and older) will not longer work after July 1st. So I installed the latest Beta 126.96.36.199 version.
The problem with this is that the Skype icon will not go away from Plank. The icon shows correctly in the top bar, so I don't see why it won't go away.
Is there any way to force the icon to not show in Plank?
