i have found a custom pidgin-libnotify that tries to use the unity launchers to display the amount of missed messages(usually adds a few extra then whats there) and works for the usual stuff too at which is for natty but does work with Oneiric so maybe patch it a bit to work with the unity launcher better and put it in the main repository or something

pidgin-libnotify uses the function indicate_indicator_set_property_icon() which has been renamed:

Attaching a debdiff to fix this:

pidgin-libnotify (0.14-4ubuntu9) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Port to libindicate 0.6 API: replace indicate_indicator_set_property_icon()
    with indicate_gtk_indicator_set_property_icon().

This bug was fixed in the package pidgin-libnotify - 0.14-4ubuntu9

pidgin-libnotify (0.14-4ubuntu9) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Clean debian source v3 autogenerated diff and include those in
    indicate.patch since that's the patch they were updating
  * debian/control, debian/rules: use dh-autoreconf rather than
    shipping the autoconf in a diff.

  [ Felix Geyer ]
  * indicate.patch: replace indicate_indicator_set_property_icon()
    with indicate_gtk_indicator_set_property_icon(). (LP: #827626)
