Gmail Notifier for Ubuntu Edgy Eft

Gmail Notifier

Gmail Notifier is a nice little tool to allow you to receive gmail notifications. This tutorial is how to install CheckGmail as Gmail Notifier into your Ubuntu Edgy Eft.


CheckGmail is a system tray application that checks a Gmail account for new mail. When new mail is present the tray icon changes, an optional animated popup is displayed and a tooltip displays the number and details of new messages. Each message can be opened directly in a browser window, and many common Gmail operations (marking as read, archiving, deleting or reporting as spam) can be carried out on messages directly within CheckGmail, without the need to use the Gmail web interface.
