I use gmail notifier with Arch, which I've found works reasonably well. It's a python script that kind of mimics the official checker from google for windows with pretty simple configuration, it justs asks for your username and password when you first start it if I remember correctly. While I was looking searching the Arch packages for the website I also found KCheckGmail which is designed for KDE CheckGmail, but I have no idea how well either of those work.
