I cant see skype-wrapper in unity dash (alt f2). So I run it from terminal and attach it with skype. But it only appears in menu, when I run it from terminal like

[email protected]:~$ skype-wrapper
Starting skype-wrapper
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gobject/ Warning: g_boxed_type_register_static: assertion `g_type_from_name (name) == 0' failed
  import gobject._gobject
INFO: Initializing Skype API
INFO: Waiting for Skype Process
INFO: Attaching skype-wrapper to Skype process
INFO: Attached complete

When I quit the terminal, skype disappear from messaging menu. So I need to run skype-wrapper instead of skype and need to add it in startup?

Or any other work around?

I followed this tutorial.

Restart also does not help.
