As the title suggests, let's brainstorm some ideas for applets and extensions to make the experience better.
1. Gmail applet (that checks for unread mails etc) 2. Notification history applet (that gives you a history of notifications, in case you were away from your PC) 3. Customisable panel (right-click to adjust transparency etc) 4. A Twitter applet (like Choqok, but maybe a bit simpler)
FYI: I have that one installed (from before I installed Cinnamon) and the functionality of it still works alright (i.e. touchpad is disabled when mouse is plugged in), but the panel indicator doesn't show up any more.
re messaging menu, thats fine with me as long as its optional, personally i totally hate it, must be optional with classic tray icons for the individual messaging apps for those who dont want the msg menu

That's certainly an obvious MIA in Cinnamon, hopefully the devs will take it on at some point as the current unofficial messaging menu applet author seems to be in over his head when it comes to developing and fine tuning the applet - gmail integration is a must.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!
