is it not working ? do we have the sources ?
or maybe Thuderbird now has its own Dbus interface ? in which case we could make a pretty new applet

Actually it won't install in TB 12 (Ubuntu Precise) and forcing the install won't bring in the functionality.
The version at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/cairo-dock-unread-count/ is really old but all sources are in the .xpi

voila une version corrigée
http://dl.free.fr/pTEp12vqw
par contre je ne sais pas trop comment en faire un .xpi (pour ouvrir le .xpi original j'ai juste utilisé gzip, donc pour le refaire j'ai utilisé tar cfz).
tout retour est le bienvenu !

Merci mais le site de téléchargement ne fonctionne pas bien. La validation ne marche pas.
Le fichier .xpi est un ZIP, pas un tgz. Il devrait être possible de le recréer facilement.

oui mais je n'ai pas trop cherché, je fournis juste les sources
après je sais pas comment le faire parvenir à Mozilla, ou comment l'installer à la main dans firefox ...

OK so I managed to make it work by editing three files.
1) Download and save the .xpi from Mozilla at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/cairo-dock-unread-count/
2) With a zip file manager, unpack files install.rdf, chrome/content/cairo-Animate.py and chrome/content/cairo-SetQuickInfo.py
3) Modify install.rdf:
::a) Add a line with <em:unpack>true</em:unpack>
::b) Modify this line to show 13.0 or more: <em:maxVersion>13.0</em:maxVersion>
4) Modify cairo-Animate.py. Last line should be
cairo.Animate( sys.argv[2], int(sys.argv[1]), 'class=thunderbird')
5) Modify cairo-SetQuickInfo.py. The line towards the end should be
cairo.SetQuickInfo( text, 'class=thunderbird')
6) Repack the modified files inside the .xpi. Take care to preserve the paths, use xarchiver or some similar program.
7) Install in TB by going to the addons tab (Tools/Add-ons), click the gears button next to the search field and pick 'Install Add-On From File'.
Restart TB and voilà!

Sorry for not providing the finished .xpi file. If someone can host it I can email it to you.
Cheers!

thanks !
how did you do exactly to make the .xpi ?

to share it, you can drop the .xpi file on the "Drop to share" applet

I didn't make the xpi, I just updated the files inside using Xarchiver.
Here is the link to the addon in a Dropbox share. Enjoy!

thanks for the details, I could install it succesfully.

the applet is currently available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/cairo-dock-unread-messages/
until it gets reviwed by Mozilla.

lol I know this looks a bit scary, actually I have some mailing lists that I don't read any more and I didn't take the time to unsubscribe them
plus some old adresses that are saturated with spams.

I may have missed a step in trying to get this addon to work. I have installed the addon in thubderbird. I have added a thunderbird launcher to the cairo-dock. But when i start thunderbird, i do not see the number of unread messages in launcher. Does anyone know what i could be doing wrong?

@ fabounet: is it possible that we need the latest stable version of Cairo-Dock?

Problem solved! The CDApplet was not installed correctly.
