Back in Ubuntu 12.04, installing the
gm-notify application allowed did these things:
- Shoe me the number of unread messages in my inbox
- Show me a blue envelope when an email was received
- Show me a notification when an email was received
I have done a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 and installed and configured gm-notify, and it only shows me a notification. The messaging menu no longer has an inbox count and no longer turns blue.
What can I do to restore the old behavior and get blue icons as well as an inbox count in the system tray?
If there's a bug in gm-notify or in Ubuntu 13.04, is there an alternative to accomplish this?
Please note - I am aware of the Gmail Unity Webapp but that requires the browser to remain open and is overall too problematic, and I would like to find out how to restore the blue envelope + message count functionality.
