System tray icon does not have any badge on it after receiving new emails. It changes color to blue when there are unread emails, but no other indication is given.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Close the app to the system tray on Cinnamon + Arch Linux
  2. Observe no badge/count after emails come in

Expected Behavior

Badge should appear with number of unread emails on the system tray icon




  • OS and Version: Arch Linux (6.0.8-arch1-1)
    • Installation Method: AUR
  • Mailspring Version: 1.10.6-ba7e89bb

Additional Context

There is an old closed issue about this here: Icon Badge on Ubuntu

However, I checked and my desktop file is Mailspring.desktop, so that shouldn’t be the issue.
