the ui for gwibber2 sucks imo
I have two bones to pick with indicator-applet integration at the moment. I have pidgin and empathy installed (im happy to test empathy but it does not have the features I need). They both show up in the indicator-applet.
However, there does not appear to be a way to minimize either pidgin or empathy to the applet. Both still minimize to their own icon in the notification area (or if you like with pidgin you can remove the indicator icon but if you close the window pidgin closes). This is redundant.
Also I do not use evolution so it would be convenient to be able to remove it from showing up under the indicator-applet menu.
And yeah, I wouldn't mind configuring which apps appear in it and which do not, either.
Install pidgin-libnotify and the old Jaunty behavior will return for Pidgin - minimizes to indicator applet.
Since Pidgin is no longer default, I guess neither is this package.
After an update one or two days ago empathy no longer has its own icon but uses the indicator-applet instead.
I don't know if pidgin behaves so too.
Guys there is indicator applet and indicator applet sessions ,two of them which can be added to the panel.
The latter seems to behave like the FUSA applet from yore.
Try it .Lots of work being done to improve the user interaction as promised.
Not sure if any of it is useful though.
