Few days before I was just set up ubuntu 22.10 on my laptop. I installed skype and it’s installed currently. everything is working fine. But when I call my client and need to share my screen. It’s wasn’t showing the screen share option on skype. I google it and long research found out what was the issue. Ubuntu Skype screen sharing is not working with the windowing system “Wayland”.

You can see solution below how to resolve this issue.

Check Windowing System:

You need to run bellow command:

echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE

.medrectangle-3-multi-157{border:none!important;display:block!important;float:none;line-height:0;margin-bottom:15px!important;margin-left:0!important;margin-right:0!important;margin-top:15px!important;max-width:100%!important;min-height:250px;min-width:300px;padding:0;text-align:center!important}

Output:

wayland

Change Windowing System:

You need to open custom.conf file and remove “#” near WaylandEnable=false. let’s run bellow command:

sudo nano /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

.medrectangle-4-multi-155{border:none!important;display:block!important;float:none;line-height:0;margin-bottom:15px!important;margin-left:0!important;margin-right:0!important;margin-top:15px!important;max-width:100%!important;min-height:250px;min-width:300px;padding:0;text-align:center!important}

Remove “#” from “WaylandEnable=false” line.

#WaylandEnable=false

INTO

WaylandEnable=false

Then save it.

Reboot System:

Then you need to reboot system by using bellow command:

Now you can skype call and check it. It will work 🙂
