Push-to-talk for Skype (on Linux)

This gnome panel application allows one to assign a key (by default F12), that will unmute one's microphone in a skype conversation while pushed.


  • pygtk
  • xlib

On Ubuntu, this is as easy as running sudo apt-get install python-gtk2 python-xlib.


  1. Run sudo ./
  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.
