In the latest episode of checkgmail breaking, the dialog box for username/password box comes up over and over. You may get terminal output that says the user name and password cannot be saved. This also fixes the dreaded "Error: 200 OK" message at login.
Open up a terminal and enter the following:
Enter capital Y when it asks "OK to update to new version via 'sudo mv checkgmail /usr/bin/'?(Y/n)>"
Enter your root password at the prompt. Close checkgmail when it opens.
sudo apt-get install patch
sudo patch /usr/bin/checkgmail checkgmail.patch
Should be working now. Enjoy!
