*Warning* This is going to require some command line knowledge and editing source files! This is a dirty fix; Let me know how to make it better!
Gmail Notifier is a Linux alternative for the notifier program released by Google, it is written in Python and provides an attractive and simple way to check for new mail messages.
Gmail Notifier works with Google Apps accounts but when you try to access your inbox it goes to the gmail website and not your domain’s URL.
For those that don’t have Gmail Notifier installed you can find more information about it and install/download it at their website. For the lazy Linix users (you Ubuntu users), you can find it in the package manager (Applications -> Add/Remove…), go to apt:gmail-notify in a web browser, or run the following in the command line:
sudo apt-get install gmail-notify
After installation of gmail-notify run the following in the command line:
cd /usr/lib/gmail-notify sudo gedit notifier.py
I used gedit to modify my file but you are free to use whatever text editor you like.
Next find the following code:
def gotourl( self, wg=None): print "----------" print "launching browser "+self.options['browserpath']+" http://mail.google.com/" os.system(self.options['browserpath']+" http://mail.google.com/ &")
Replace it with
def gotourl( self, wg=None): print "----------" print "launching browser "+self.options['browserpath']+" https://mail.google.com/a/SITE.COM" os.system(self.options['browserpath']+" https://mail.google.com/a/SITE.COM &")
And that is all you need to do! Restart gmail-notify and the changes should be made. Now if only Gmail Notifier included this by default and let you manage multiple accounts at the same time.
