I have recently updated to Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and ever since I don't get the notifications on my screen anymore if contacts go online or offline. I do hear the message, but it doesn't pop up on my screen. If a person sends me a message I do get it on my screen.
Please help me out if you know how to fix,
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the exact same issue ... can't find a solution (the only thing I found was your thread).
Also I won't get any visual notifications, only the sounds.
To me it happened after the latest Skype update. Both Skype and ML are the latest versions and I even deinstalled Skype and set up everything new ... was of no use.
It is rather annoying, I keep missing contacts because I don't constantly double-check if they are online or if the sound that I just heard was because somebody joined or left.
Hope my answer at least draws more attention to the thread so that some smart person might stumble across it and be able to help!
Go to the menu bar. Skype\Preferences\Notifications and then click on Details. Select in Event, "Contact becomes available" and then, at the bottom, select Speak text which will tell you who has just come on line. In the overview section I've not selected visual notifications in the "Overview" tab but try that as well and you should get extra information.
I dont know how, but I fixed it, I almost did the same as rwakeford told me to do but didnt activate voice thingy, but BELOW that option is the option saying visual screen notifications or something, check that and after awhile it gets fixed =D
Just to see now if it keeps working, I'll keep you updated.
