View Full Version : [SOLVED] CheckGMail systray icon
February 20th, 2011, 06:58 PM
I'm running Meerkat and have CheckGMail installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre.
It runs fine and functionality is 100%, but the icon is a grey/white envelope with a white/light grey background.
How can I get it to blend into the systray?
I did a search, and followed a couple of sets of instructions with no luck.

Afraid I tried that one, with no change. Any other clues? Or is an alternative Gmail notifier?

So I updated it:
sudo checkgmail --update
In shell I then type 'Y' to agree to the update, it gets down to:
OK to update to new version via 'sudo mv checkgmail /usr/bin/'?(Y/n)> Y
chmod a+x checkgmail
sudo mv checkgmail /usr/bin/
Restarting checkgmail ...
Warning: Gtk2::Sexy not found ...
CheckGmail uses Gtk2::Sexy for clickable URLs in mail messages
Please download and install from CPAN (http://search.cpan.org) if you want to use this feature ...
Creating translations file at /root/.checkgmail/lang.xml ...
Updating translations file ...
Wide character in print at /usr/bin/checkgmail line 5118.
Then opens the preferences window, and it still has the wrong background.
The shell hangs on 'done!' and doesn't return to the prompt.

I found the fix here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1520603/#8). All working.
