Get Skype Indicator in Ubuntu 13.04

If you have installed Skype in Ubuntu, you will notice that it doesn’t come with an indicator displayed in the system tray. Use this method to install Skype instead:

In the terminal, type:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skype && sudo apt-get -f install

This will install Skype together with its appindicator.
