In Ubuntu 16.04 I had a Thunderbird icon in tray bar with unread messages but there isn't in Ubuntu 18.04.

Is there a chance to have it again?

  • Thanks pomsky but in Ubuntu 16.04 I didn't use Firetray add-on – metmarte Aug 30 '18 at 15:02
  • Thunderbird itself doesn't provide any option to show an icon in tray bar with unread messages, most probably it was a feature of Unity desktop environment that came with 16.04. Since Ubuntu 18.04 uses GNOME instead of Unity, you'll most probably have to try some alternative like Firetray. – pomsky Aug 30 '18 at 18:55

Try Birdtray (https://github.com/gyunaev/birdtray)

Install on Ubuntu 18.04:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/apps
$ sudo apt install birdtray
