    How do you add web mail notification and calendar to Gnome 3?

    Is it possible to add web mail notification and calendar to Gnome 3?
    What I want is to get notifications from Gnome 3, when I receive a mail in my gmail and maybe also hotmail if possible.
    I also would like my Google calender to be connected to the Gnome 3 calendar. Is that possible?

    gm-notify is in the repos, install & configure and it integrates with the envelope icon on your panel.
    As for your calendar, I think if you install xul-ext-lightning, and configure it with Thunderbird, you should be able to access your google calendar from add-ons.

    Can it be done without including Thunderbird or Evolution? It seems that Gnome 3 is hooked up to Evolution.
    I want to total web-enable my Gnome 3 desktop, without using any local installed programs like Thunderbird and Evolution. Maybe it's not possible yet???

    I Think so.
    Configure gm-notify to use "gmail web interface" instead of email client, then when you click on the envelope & inbox, it should connect you to the web & your gmail account.

    You may want look at this link, it describes a method to integrate Google Calendar in the Gnome Shell without Evolution. http://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/googl...tegration.html

    Works fine ! Thanks. Hope it's safe....
    Gnome should make an integration with Google Calendar as a standard option.
    Maybe in the future...

    Is there a 'gm-notify' that can include other web-mail accounts like hotmail?

    If you search "hotmail" in synaptic, there seem to be 1 or 2 apps.
    How well they work i don't know as i don't have a hotmail account.
