I have a completely fresh install for Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit on Dell Latitude E6510. (I also had the same problem on the same laptop using 13.10 32-bit). I use Chromium as my web browser.

Webapps are not working: Chromium Ubuntu 13.10 - No webapp setup prompt & webapp icons show up as chromium icon.

Already done are:

sudo apt-get install unity-chromium-extension  

sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-*  

Also in dconf /com/canonical/unity/webapps

allowed-domains []  
dontask-domains []  
index-update-time 43200  
integration-allowed ticked  
preauthorized-domains ['', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '']  

Online account enaled: Google, Facebook.

There are two issues here:

(1) No webapp setup prompts: Case: Upon opening of Gmail, LinkedIn, Launchpad, etc., I expected to be prompted to enable the webapp but this did not happen.

(2) Webapp icons do not work. Case: Gmail does work. It was already there. No prompts or install procedures. However, whilst its icon is separate on the launcher, it is not a Gmail icon but a chromium icon.

How can I fix these issues ?

I'm having same problem. I am not getting prompted either and I'm on a fresh install. Haven't tried Firefox, but Chromium seems to not work with this at all despite having the extension installed. – Gilgamesh Dec 1 '13 at 4:58
