I have been using CentOS 7 on a laptop for a while now (about two years),
using skypeforlinux all the time.

After today's update, skype ceased to start as a service, as it used to be
configured. It fails to start manually, e.g., it does start and is listed
as a job, but it doesn't appear visible on the desktop.

In the case you know something about it, please let us all know.
