Matt’s Howto:

For anyone using Ubuntu 11.10 or earlier, you may have found that installing the software desktop-webmail installs okay, but it’s not available to be selected under the preferred application settings. Most likely, you’re looking at Thunderbird only! This segment shows you how to side-step this issue, plus you’ll be able to use this Ubuntu PPA to completely prevent this problem from becoming a show-stopper for you.

Simply do the following in a terminal window:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:asac/sandbox

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install desktop-webmail

After closing and reopening your browser, try a “mailto” link and watch it open up Gmail (or whatever you have set up under desktop-webmail)
