Ubuntu – way to add Mozilla Thunderbird to the messaging menu


I use Thunderbird instead of Evolution for my mail client, so I'd prefer if I could replace Evolution with Thunderbird in the messaging component of the Indicator applet. Does anyone know how to do this?

Best Answer

You want the Mozilla Notification Extensions, aka messagingmenu-extension.

But it will not delete the evolution entry, to do that you need to remove /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications/evolution

The upstream source for the addon is available on Launchpad if you care to inspect it.
