Hi I added Skype into gnome-session-properties. but I see it's annoying when you start your system see it on the first ! So is there a possible way to make it running while its minimized or closed?

Thanks Running Fedora 18 32bit

In the general options you can tick the "Start Skype minimised in the system tray" option

Fedora, rather your desktop environment, cannot control whether skype starts minimized. If skype has the option you can use it to start it in minimized mode where it's only a notification icon.

From what I see, there isn't a command line option, may be something in the GUI?

[ankur@dhcppc1  ~]$ skype --help

Usage: skype [options]
  --dbpath=<path>       Specify an alternative path to store Skype data files.
                        Default: ~/.Skype
  --resources=<path>    Specify a path where Skype can find its resource files.
                        Default: /usr/share/skype
  --secondary           Start a secondary instance of Skype.
  --disable-api         Disable Skype Public API.
  --callto <nick>
                        These commands allow Skype links handling.
  --pipelogin           Command line login. "echo username password | skype --pipelogin"
  --version             Display version information and exit.
[ankur@dhcppc1  ~]$
