Skype incoming call notifications

Postby alivetec » Fri Jul 10, 2009 2:17 am

Growl is not displaying incoming call notifcations from Skype. It shows other notifications from Skype such "Contact Signed In" and "Contact Signed Out"
Is this a bug or is there some setting in Skype or Growl I missed? In Growl I have the Incoming Call enabled box ticked so its looks like there is no notification coming from Skype.
Growl 1.1.5 and Skype 2.8.0.438 beta (same problem with 2.7.0.330)

Thanks for he link. I had already found and tried this but no change. Other notifications from Skype get through to Growl so perhaps the incoming call notification is not being issued by Skype. Do incoming call notifications work correctly for anyone else? The reason I want it is so that I can get push notifcation of incoming Skype calls on my IPhone using Prowl so I can call back.

Make sure Skype isn't running when you run the command. Otherwise, Skype won't notice the change and is likely to overwrite it.

I also have the same problem. Growl will not respond to the incoming call. It will display when user log in or log out to SKYPE.

Growl will respond to whatever Skype sends it, unless you tell it not to.

It will display when user log in or log out to SKYPE.


Then Growl is working fine and the problem is with Skype.

I have the same problem, but I notice that no matter what notification I select from the drop menu in Growl prefs, it always resets itself back to whatever is listed first. In my case, contact login notifications. Is this a Growl issue or Skype issue?

Is there a workaround?
