On Ubuntu 8.04 a checkgmail package is available. You can install it using synaptic, Add/Remove..., or
Code:
sudo apt-get install checkgmail
from the command line. Have you already tried one of these methods?

Ok. From the menu "Applications" in the top-left corner of the Desktop, select "Add/Remove...". In the search box, type checkgmail and press enter. You will see checkgmail in the list of programs/packages. Check the little box in front of the checkmail package and press "Apply changes" in the bottom-right corner of the window.

Reply yes and/or apply to all the questions, wait for a moment and you will have checkgmail installed. To run it, from the menu "Application" select "Internet" then "Checkgmail". A form querying for your account details will appear. Fill it and the checkgmail icon will appear in the system tray. Now checkgmail is installed and running.
