Plugin To Let Emesene Use The Ubuntu Messaging Menu [Updated]

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Give Emesene the power of Messaging Menu interaction. Kinda.

By ‘kinda‘ I do, of course, mean that this plug-in is still in development and as such some things don’t quite work. Namely clicking on an alert brings up a ‘error‘ dialogue but does still raise the relevant chat window too.

Plugin working with the MessagingMenu in Ubuntu 10.04

download link: right click > save as

If you use Emesene SVN or from a daily PPA use this patch: –
download link; right click > save as

You’ll need to pop the cherry inside the following folder:

  • /usr/share/emesene/plugins_base/

as root:

  • Alt+ F2
  • gksu nautilus /usr/share/emesene/plugins_base/

You will also need to install python-indicate.

  • sudo apt-get install python-indicate

One you’re all done just restart Emesene and activate the plugin from the ‘Plugins’ menu.
