A Skype Status Menu Gnome Shell Extension is Available!

If you use Skype heavily in Gnome3 then wouldn't it be nice if you could just customize few of Skype related settings (well only one with this app) such as setting your online "status" with ease... then thanks to the power of the Gnome shell extensions... finally a simple script is been written that does exactly that.

This simple app uses the D-bus protocol to access Skype and then "extract" it into a menu for ease of access.

How can I install this Skype Status shell extension?

Open your Terminal and enter the below command.
git clone

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions

cp -r gnome-shell-ext/ ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions

This works in Fedora Core 15 but not sure if there are issue with your Gnome3 in a different distributions. And thank you Mr Teodor the cool, for this useful utility :).
