If I am on a Skype call with a person (with Share Screen Option switched ON), I don't want to get notified if someone calls me or messages me. They shouldn't know who my contacts are. What should I do in order to achieve this?


Depending on your distribution you could add a custom notification script. On e.g. Ubuntu you could use inotify-send. Add some short cut key combination to write status to a file.

E.g. Alt+Shift+M

Then configure Skype to use this script instead of internal:

  1. Select notifications
  2. Enable Advanced View
  3. Un-check Display pop-up notification
  4. Enable Execute the following script
  5. Enter path to script
