July 24, 2004 / Linux Unix QNX

like the name suggests, it’s for checking gmail account for new email

you might know that there’s already gtray for windows:

and there’s also gtray for unix:

furthermore, there’s GMailCheck for gdesklet and I believe there’s something for KDE users too!

I use XFCE CVS myself, but gtray for unix requires ruby-gnome binding… that requires me to install 10 other programs just for a simple mail checker!!! >:(

seeing that I might actually use gmail, last night I wrote something using GTK and curl

It’s very barebone right now since I have exams in a week, I can’t spend too much time on it.

you can check out my program here.
