In order to get skype to run properly, i need to run a command in terminal "export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 && skype" and it works fine. I want to be able to click on a skype icon and have it run that command in the background instead of having to open a terminal and copy/paste the command every time. I feel like there is an easy way to do this, but i'm too much of a noob to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Are you running KDE? If so, right-click the K-menu (PC-menu) icon, click "Edit Applications...", navigate to "Skype" (under "Internet") and edit the "Command" line.
(You could also edit the the file /home/<yourname>/.local/share/applications/skype.desktop
directly - or if you haven't got one /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop
