KCheckGMail, as the name implies is a simple utility for KDE desktop which sits in the systray and notifies of any new email on your GMail email account. KCheckGMail works OK on KDE 4.x desktops and is tested on KDE 3.5.

KCheckGMail works on openSUSE 11.1, openSUSE 11.0 and openSUSE 10.3.

KCheckGMail can be installed using the following 1-click installers available at openSUSE Build Service. Click one of the following 1-click installs based on your openSUSE version.

NOTE: There isn’t a 1-click installer available for openSUSE 11.1 yet but the 1-click installer available for openSUSE 11.0 works just fine with 11.1

openSUSE 10.3
