Indicator Applet Thunderbird Support

Thunderbird does not have the Ubuntu indicator support at the moment. Only evolution is has full indicator support at the moment but i prefer to use Thunderbird. So here is how to get a basic Thunderbird starter in your indicator applet:

create a file named ‘thunderbird’ in /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications

nano /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications/thunderbird

and add the following:


Thats it save the file and you should be able to start Thunderbird from the indicator applet
