This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Incidentally, you can also use sudo apt-get install mail-notification-evolution fetchyahoo getlive. apt-get install takes multiple arguments. – sarnold Jul 26 '10 at 9:45

It's described here: E-Mail Notification in Ubuntu, if you still need this. The FetchYahoo needs to be manually upgraded, because Synaptic Package Manager doesn't offer the last version.
