Install Gmail notifier on Linux


Hello all,
I'd download the gmail notifier from this location:
http://gmail-notify.sourceforge.net/download.php

I extract it, but I don't know what does that mean:
then go into the created directory with the files and start the notifier with ./notifier.py
Can some body explain more?
Thanks in advance

It's quite simple really. In a console shell, cd into that directory, then run the command "./notifier.py". This will execute the script that starts the program ("./" indicates the current directory, and "notifier.py" is the file in the directory to be executed).

It's a python script, so make sure you also have the proper python interpreter installed.

just the post above,
you need the python interpreter to run the .py file
go to software manager of your distribution, search for python and install it..
that will solve your problem.
