    restore Evolution to indicator applet

    On a fresh install of 10.04, I had to briefly uninstall Evolution. When I did that, it naturally disappeared from the indicator applet.

    However, when I re-installed Evolution, it did not restore the application to the indicator applet. I still have the Chat and Broadcast options, but not the Mail option.

    How do I restore Mail to the indicator applet?

    Found a partial solution here:

    However, on the drop-down menu, it still says "Set up mail."

    How do I fix that?

    Right click on the top panel, click "Add to Panel" and scroll down to "Indicator Applet" and you're done

    I have experienced exact problem as original poster, and this does not fix it. It only adds the Indicator Applet.

    The applet itself is still missing the envelope. Google and forum searches have frustrated. Is there anyway to get it back?

    Restore panels to default and see if that helps .
    Code:
    gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."

    Try to add a file called "evolution" to the directory "/usr/share/indicators/messages/applications", with the following content:
    Code:
    /usr/share/applications/evolution-mail.desktop
    Then restart gnome-panel, like Frogs Hair mentioned.

    I did the restart Frogs Hair mentioned, and also did the evolution file, and then the restart, and still no envelope.

    Thanks for the replies, if you come up with any other ideas, please let me know.

    Check if the package "indicator-messages" is installed at all. If it's not, install it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install indicator-messages

    well, that got "kind of" closer.

    there's now an evolution "envelope" as a separate applet, but it is still not in the indicator session applet.

    Re: restore Evolution to indicator applet

    well, hold on, perhaps we have finally got it.

    i found an applet called "indicator applet complete," and added it to the panel. the evolution part is right in there, along with the volume control, the "me" bit, and the power/log off options.

    great, done, thank you all for your help.
