    Check GMail icon in Lucid

    Since upgrading to Lucid, the "Check GMail" icon in the system tray doesn't fit in to the Lucid colour scheme (see screenshot).

    The preferences offer a "Set Tray Background" option, but this doesn't seem to make a difference. Anyone had this problem and managed to sort it out?

    Yup yup, theres a fix.

    Open the terminal (Applications, accessories, terminal)
    and type the following command into the window.

    Code:
    sudo checkgmail --update
    I noticed that problem about a month ago, and they had already pushed the update.

    In Lucid, it only works with Ambiance default theme.

    Re: Same Problem here

    I modified the latest svn version to fix this problem for other themes than Ambiance. Transparency doesn't work, but now you can change the background to whatever color you want.

    You can download the file here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/555601/checkgmail

    Save the file to your home folder, then open a terminal and copy it to /usr/bin

    Code:
    sudo cp checkgmail /usr/bin
    and make it executable
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/checkgmail
    Restart checkgmail, set the tray background, and restart again.

    One thing that foiled me for a while: the --update asks you a <Y/n> question about whether to proceed. Just pressing ENTER doesn't work, you need to type a capital Y and then ENTER.
