I'm upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 and then to 13.04. In 12.04 I was usage with gm-notify to alert me when a message is coming in the messaging menu. In 13.04 its not shown in the messaging menu.

There is another sample app that show in the messaging menu when message is coming to Gmail?

For me, Unity Mail resolved the issue.

apt-get install unity-mail or install it from Ubuntu Software Center searching for Unity Mail.


If you have either Firefox or Chromium installed then you can use the Web App.

Click here: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/unity-webapps-gmail/

and install the Web App.

    I've had it installed, but it's not really comfortable, and it does not appear on the menu messages Commented May 1, 2013 at 6:31
