This is nice! One thing that might be nice to see in a future version would be changing your system-wide messaging status (Online, Offline, Away, Busy, etc., just like the Ubuntu messaging menu did). It would also be great if it could interface somehow with Thunderbird and Evolution, to notify you of new messages (some change in the icon and a libnotify message), and have a number next to the program's name in the menu (something like this: "Thunderbird (5)") to show how many new messages there are. Maybe include support for other e-mail checkers as well. I know that's asking a lot, so no worries. This is just my personal wish list.

It takes a long time without updating.
With Cinnamon 1.8 does not work, and I think neither did 1.7.
Please ADAPT it.

How do you add user accounts? Facebook for example.

Starting Skype open next sound settings icon instead of Skype own-Linux Mint 13 Maya 64bit.
Except this is a great job!

I do not quite understand how to do that. I will look into it when possible.

Yes, Gibber. Do you think this could be integrated?

Hello,
how can Twitter accounts be added to this applet?

Any plans to have an integration with the User applet?

CaptainMark, I plan to make that exactly. I'm just new to the whole Javascript thing. I am learning and hopefully will figure this stuff out :)

If anyone feels they can do it faster, feel welcome to, as I am only one person, with multiple projects. :) Anyone who decides to do this, email me at bendloveless@gmail.com

Good applet, has a lot of potential to be incredible but a long way to go yet, it would be awesome to re create the ubuntu messaging menu (sorry had to make the comparison) outside of unity, and gnome-shell style interactive notifications

I do not understand. I used the same code in both applets. Are you sure this was the case.?

I have a suggestion for your applet. I previously installed the version of your applet which is separate for Thunderbird and Evolution. I have Thunderbird. I then installed your newest version. There is one functional difference between the two versions which matters to me.

Using your newest version, if you initially click on "Compose New Message," you cannot then open up the main area Thunderbird in order to read, for example, new mail. Rather, you need to shut down the message and then open Thunderbird. By contrast, with the prior version, you could do so. While I like that the newest version has an icon for Thunderbird, this lack of functionality - which is also a problem using Cairo dock, so you are in good company - keeps me using the older version of the program.

Otherwise, you have written a really good applet.

Does it have a github? I'm interested in help developing this tool because it was one of the most interesting features on Unity.

This is nice. One thought I had though: maybe someone should try making an applet to interface directly with Ubuntu's Indicators. That way, we wouldn't have to reinvent a bunch of wheels. Only one. That would also solve the notification issue. I wouldn't know where to begin with that since I'm not a coder, but if it's possible, it would be a nice addition, I think. Just a thought.

Almost perfect! Just missing the notifications.
And any chance of making the clients "minimize" to the messaging menu when I click on the "close" button?
Thanks for the great job =)

Probably isn't going to be another release from me, anyone else can have fun with the project.. I'm trying though.

Excellent! Agree with py_mint on the notifications. That would make it perfect. Thanks ;)

Really Awesome applet! For the next release, can you add notifications for those clients? 5 stars!
