Can you please point me in the right direction. My Ubuntu 18.04 Unity 64-bit desktop is not showing the mail widget in the top bar which turns blue when there are unread mails in Thunderbird 68.7.0. How can I install this feature?
Would be Birdtray an option for you?
Don’t know. Tried but the Github installation process is as clear as mud.
It should be in the repo too.
Just a sudo apt install birdtray…
If it’s missing (being on Debian I’m really unsure about Ubuntu repo) try this:
Many thanks, found it here: https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/10/birdtray-thunderbird-tray-icon-with-new.html and installed successfully but I have not really been able to see what it does and how it is supposed to work yet.
Birdtray does not do what is required, i.e. to indicate when there are new unread mails.
