I am using Ubuntu 10.10 version. Recently i am finding this error. When i used to close the skype client then it used to go up to the desktop. ( The above panel where time and date are generally displayed.) Now when i am closing it get's closed and i don't know where it's located. Then when i try to sign in again it says Another Skype version is running.

Any ideas on how to rectify this.

You might accidentaly have removed the "system tray" from the top panel. Do other applications still show their icons at the top?
