Under preferences, there's a line for "Command to execute on new mail". I just stick in an aplay command, like this:

Code: Select all

aplay ~/newmessage.wav

Not to hijack the thread but anyone know how to make this not ugly under KDE? The icon has a grayed out background around it and changing the background in the preferences does nothing.

Here's the fixed script, based on the bug logged in ( ... bug/851553):

So, for the time being, don't update the script anymore...

Go here, copy the text, save it in a plain text file called "checkgmail":

Code: Select all
After that, make it executable, and copy it in /usr/bin folder.

Start checkgmail... hey! it works now!
