The IM system in Ubuntu is called Telepathy. Empathy is a GUI for some aspects of it. But Telepathy is really different from Pidgin. It is designed to be accessed by different applications at the same time, for instance. IE, a contact application would simply make a request for a phone call, and then you'd get a GUI to end the phone call, etc. The contact ...

Unfortunately the shortcuts for both indicator-applet and indicator-applet-session are not configurable, which causes problems. See bugs #558581 and #554713. If you are brave and know what you are doing, you could use one of the patches listed in bug report #558581. You could also use indicator-applet-complete which only uses the Super+S shortcut.

I have recently gotten these notifications to work. I'm not sure if this will work for everyone. I'm also not sure if this is a bug or not. It seems more like an oversight of forgotten software that should be installed by default. I installed the following packages to get everything (sound, bubble, messaging indicator) to work: sudo apt-get install ...

Interesting question. There is no official API for discovering if the messaging menu has changed it's state. You can do it by looking at the DBus interface of the indicator-messages-service. A shell script way is like this: $ gdbus call --session --dest com.canonical.indicator.messages --object-path /com/canonical/indicator/messages/service --method ...

The way applications interact with the messaging menu was changed in 12.10, and not all applications have been updated. Pidgin (as of 20th Oct 2012) has not been updated. There is a ticket tracking what applications have been migrated. Until then Empathy could be used as an replacement.

This is likely related to the bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/indicator-messages/+bug/1040259 In 12.10, the libindicate API was deprecated and a new API was introduced (libmessaging-menu). If you look at the bug page, many applications are in the process of being ported to this new API, including Evolution and Pidgin. Looks like the Pidgin ...

You can no longer add/remove indicators or panels by right-clicking like you used to with older Ubuntu versions before 11.10. Warning: The default indicators (messages, networking, power, sound, user accounts, etc.) are tightly integrated with Unity since Ubuntu 11.10, and trying to remove them may cause problems. You can remove these default ...

The messaging menu uses the Telepathy framework and sends the status events to Telepathy's Mission Control. The webpage that describes Telepathy and how it works is here: http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/ If you use the Telepathy-GLib library you're probably looking for the "most-available-presence-changed" signal from the TpAccountManager object. ...

You can try typing this in a terminal: /usr/lib/evolution-webcal/evolution-webcal ICAL_PRIVATE_ADDRESS (where ICAL_PRIVATE_ADDRESS is the Private URL of the Google Calendar you want to add) It only opens a dialog to confirm you want to add this calendar without opening the whole Evolution window, nor the first-run dialog which forces you to add your ...

What I did was create the folder ~/.config/indicators/messages/applications-blacklist. Then inside it, I created a text file called gwibber.indicator with only one line: /usr/share/applications/gwibber.desktop Now log out and back in (or kill and restart the panel) and you should see the broadcast item is gone. The authoritative source for this is ...

I couldn't find anything pre-made to do what you ask. It should be easy enough to program something using python-gdata and python-pyosd, I'd say this would be a good project for an amateur computer programmer getting into some of these technologies. Of course if you get in touch with an independent developer (like me), we'd be happy to exchange code for ...
