Hi Guys,

So far everything seems to be working great on my Ubuntu 8.04 except one small annoyance. I use checkgmail notifier and I have also added it to startup so that it loads on the Gnome panel on start up. However when I boot my system, everything on my panel loads quickly except checkgmail notifier. It loads almost after a minute. And when it is still loading (during the one minute wait period) the CPU usage is 100 %.

This makes me feel that my Ubuntu seems to be loading up slowly similar to VISTA or XP. However, I will never switch back to Windoz. I just want this small bug to be fixed. Any help from all you Ubuntu experts will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance.

BTW, I forgot to mention. I had checkgmail installed in Gutsy (7.10) and it worked just fine.

Cheers,
Harry
