In the notification area (down by the clock)...
...right click on the speaker icon
...select Sounds from the context menu:

Sound OK on Skype - Everything else = Silence?-sound.png

Once the window opens, select the tab named Communications.

Select the option for Do nothing

Click on Apply.

You can leave the window open while you test sounds.
