    How to get pdigin into message tray 12.10?

    Is there a way to get pidgin to show up in the message tray in 12.10? Doesn't work currently.

    In Pidgin, Tools > Preferences > Interface; set "Show system tray icon" to "Always".

    System tray != Message tray icon.

    Setting it to always gives Pidigin it's own icon which you then have to whitelist.

    So you haven't figured out how to get it to work? Has anyone done a bug report against message indicator or shall i?

    Well maybe if you clarified what desktop environment you're using...

    Works fine for me in Gnome Shell.

    I've managed to get Pidgin to show in the messaging menu, but it's not fully integrated. It will launch Pidgin from the menu, but it doesn't show any status. You can add it to the messaging menu through dconf editor. It's under com/canonical/indicator/messages. Just add in pidgin.desktop the entries.
    Also, there is already a bug report open for pidgin and the other main messaging indicators here - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1040259

    Ubuntu != Unity

    Just because there is a Gnome respin now, doesn't mean all Gnome Shell users have suddenly flocked over to it. Some of us simply install Gnome Shell alongside Unity.

    Anyway, best of luck solving your problem.
