Thread: Program to Check Gmail automatically?

  1. #1

    Default Program to Check Gmail automatically?

    I'm a former GNOME Ubuntu user, so I'm used to having the program checkgmail, which allows me to monitor my gmail inbox via an icon in the system tray. When I get an email, I could open it through the icon. I can't seem to find anything like this in KDE openSUSE though. Does anyone have suggestions on a program to do this for me?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Thanks! I wondered if I could install those...I wasn't sure if I could easily install source files on openSUSE, but I checked the wiki and it explained. I'm installing the C components right now, and I'll probably use checkinstall to do it so it's easy to remove if needed. Basically the same, but you have to manually install the compilers...good deal.

    You install all the development files for OpenSUSE through the YaST Package Manager. To do that, just open the YaST installer, and then change the list in the bottom-left to Patterns. Then in the left panel, there should be a pattern called Basic Development (or something similar to that). That will install all the basic development packages such as the C and C++ compilers, and the make development packages.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks, I installed the development packages, but when I try to make the installation/compile, this is what I get:
    Code:
    an@linux-8amt:~> cd /home/dan/kcheckgmail/
    dan@linux-8amt:~/kcheckgmail> sudo make -f Makefile.cvs
    root's password:
    This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
    This will be deleted before making the distribution
    
    ./admin/cvs.sh: line 636: ./admin/detect-autoconf.pl: Permission denied
    ./admin/cvs.sh: line 33: --version: command not found
    *** AUTOCONF NOT FOUND!.
    *** KDE requires autoconf 2.53 or newer
    make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    dan@linux-8amt:~/kcheckgmail> sudo ./configure
    sudo: ./configure: command not found
    What am I missing? I'm trying to install kcheckgmail...

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hi
    Just FYI, to do ./configure and make commands you can run these as a
    normal user. It's only make install that needs to be run as root.

    Check via yast that you have autoconf installed?

    Else if you search here fo kcheckgmail there is an rpm made;

    I do have autoconf installed, I just checked...

    I would like to do this via compilation just so I know that it will work in the case that I have to do it again, so any ideas on what else I should check on?
