For some reason I want to stick with Empathy rather than Pidgin and hence removed Pidgin from Ubuntu completely.
Now, I still see pidgin internet messenger under the mail indicator applet icon:
Nothing happens when I click that option. Please help me remove it.
P.S.: Do let me know if more information is required
EDIT 1: I used Synaptic to install
EDIT 2: Output from
gsettings get com.canonical.indicator.messages applications
