LGMTray is a lightweight application that docks in your system tray, and notifies you when new mail has arrived on your GMail account. LGMTray is written in C , is designed to have very few dependencies, and can therefore be easily built on many systems. Currently, only an X11 implementation is available (which uses the FreeDesktop.org System Tray Protocol), and the features are very limited.
You can see the application in action below (using Xystray and KDE respectively).
The reason why I wrote yet another GMail notifier is because all the other notifiers either did not work on Linux, or depended on packages that I did not have available on my machine.
If you encounter bugs, or have suggestions for improvement of this application, feel free to contact me.

· Xlib (ships with your X installation)
Download the sample configuration file lgmtray.sample_config, rename it to ~/.lgmtray, and edit it to reflect your username/password and preferences. Then, simply run the application by calling lgmtray.
