    Suggestions for GMail notifier?

    I've been previously using gm-notify, but that hasn't been updated to work with the new messaging menu API. (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1040259)

    Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for something that integrates with the messaging menu?

    I haven't tried it in 12.10 but I used an app called unity-mail not long ago (in the default repos).
    Has notifications in the messaging menu AND a launcher icon with mail count badge.

    I've not tried it yet, but supposedly unity-webapps-gmail can do what you need. If it works right, Firefox or Chromium might actually suggest you install it instead of you having to figure it out manually.

    If you have a Google Apps for Your Domain account, you'll need to wait a bit longer until that works too.

    I was hoping to use the gmail webapp but here it prompts for integration but doesn't work.

    Two other things to try: Add your Google credentials to Online Accounts and log out and log back in to Unity.

    Or just wait until nice people fix the bugs...

    gm-notify needs an all around update (gconf → dconf, gtk2 → gtk3, indicate → messagingmenu). EDIT: Oh right, it's being tracked already in the bug report you've given so someone will take care of it eventually, I hope.

    Now that we're at RC status, are there any Unity Gmail notifiers that work?

    Google Mail Checker Plus Classic is great if you use Chrome or Chromium...it's available from the extensions section...one of the BEST i have ever used...
