Here’s the link for the impatient: GMail-Notifier

I just got the GMail Notification application I had been working to a stable state. It should now work for you on a Ubuntu 9.04+ system. Just download the source and run:

./gmail-notify

The first time you run it, it should ask you for your gmail credentials.

I am looking into making it into a .deb package but that will have to wait while I figure out how to do it. Till then feel free to test it and let me know of any problems you get into.
