This question already has an answer here:

I was checking my gmail for the first time on Firefox in Ubuntu 12.10 and a message popped up asking something like, do I want to install the gmail app? I clicked yes and it put a letter icon into the top right of my screen, I guess what you call the tray.

Anyway it turns out this app is completely useless and I now want to remove it, but I cant! I've looked under "Installed" within the Ubuntu software centre but it isn't there.

  • And yes I have restarted. – Elio Feb 20 '13 at 4:33
  • What happen is it ok now ? – dedunumax Feb 20 '13 at 4:37
  • No like I said the icon is still there. I can click on it to open Gmail - but it no longer has notifications. It's like it's only half uninstalled. – Elio Feb 20 '13 at 4:44
