Thanks a lot. I'm using Lubuntu 12.04 and I have installed gnubiff with
- Code: Select all
apt-get install gnubiff
I have been using it for a while to test gnubiff as much as possible. I have to admit it's a good tool, with
pros and cons. Many options allow you to customize a lot. You can activate popups on new emails arrival,
personalize messages etc. It is sitting on your desktop or you can hide it and have gnubiff appear only
on new emails, but you cannot put it in the system-tray (which was what I was looking for at first).
You can also have gnubiff showing up in the taskbar or hide it. The best I could found is hide gnubiff from
the taskbar and show up on desktop only when new emails are not read (I'm using imap from my email
provider). But that's is not as convenient as claws-mail, which you can hide from taskbar and have it's
module displayed in the systray, showing an empty mailbox or a full mailbox icon when a new mail arrives.
It's really a pity that Thunderbird does not have it's own biff tool, just like in windows or mac-osx. After so
many years, I think such a basic tool (mandatory for beginners) should be a priority on developpers list
