Ubuntu Message Envelope

Ubuntu and in fact Gnome desktop offers the Message Applet as shown in the picture to display all the messenger and mail details. However since I don’t use it, this applet bothers me. Here is how you can remove it.

Run the command:

sudo apt-get remove indicator-messages

Next, either restart or run any of the following command depending on your desktop:
For Ubuntu

killall unity-panel-service

For Gnome:

killall gnome-panel

Its gone now!
