I'm upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 and then to 13.04. In 12.04 I was usage with gm-notify to alert me when a message is coming in the messaging menu. In 13.04 its not shown in the messaging menu.

There is another sample app that show in the messaging menu when message is coming to Gmail?

I saw that, and I tested it, and it does not meet my requirements. GmailWatcher - no messages appear on the menu. Cloud Service Notifications-not open at all ... Popper-'ve opened a bug in – avi software May 1 '13 at 6:21

For me, Unity Mail resolved the issue.

apt-get install unity-mail or install it from Ubuntu Software Center searching for Unity Mail.

I've had it installed, but it's not really comfortable, and it does not appear on the menu messages – avi software May 1 '13 at 6:31
