  2. Restart gnome panel by either logging-out/logging-in, or running sudo killall gnome-panel (it will automatically restart).
  3. Right-click on your gnome panel.
  4. Select 'Add to panel'.
  5. Add 'Skype Push-to-talk'.

Changing the Push-to-talk Key

  1. Right-click on the 'TALK' icon in your gnome panel.
  2. Click 'Set Key'.
  3. Press the key you'd like to use.
