Gmail notifiers let you know "you've got mail"

Filed under
Software

If you are into email like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan were in the movie You've Got Mail, you probably want to be warned as soon as any message enters your mailbox. If you use Gmail, you can try one of several Gmail-specific applications that let you know when new messages arrive.

KCheckGmail

I tried KCheckGmail first, a KDE-oriented application that's available in repositories for Ubuntu, Mandriva, and openSUSE, among others. If your favorite distro does not include it, check the download page or get the source code and follow the installation instructions. For non-English speakers, it's available for most European languages (including Walloon and Catalan) and some Asian languages as well, and you can help produce more translations is you are up to it.

To begin, enter your Gmail username and password in the Login tab. You can use the KDE Wallet to store them securely.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
