Install the Evolution Indicator in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal!

Developed by Novel... Evolution is one of the most widely used e-mail clients in GNU/Linux (can also be used in MS Windows as well). Ubuntu also uses Evolution as their own default e-mail client as well. But the problem with Evolution (currently, might change in the future) is that, whenever you receive new e-mails, although it notifies us via the MeMenu "interface" but the apparent problem that we have currently is that, it automatically opens up the Evolution mail client's window.

It takes space of your desktop and can be quite irritating as well. With the help of the Ubuntu's Unity indicator support, someone has written a libappindicator compatible plug-in which for Evolution which notifies whenever you receive new mails without distracting. The indicator is called Evolution Indicator

If you use Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, then you can install Evolution Indicator by using the below command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:goehle/goehle-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install evolution-indicator
