Setting Gmail As The Preferred Mail Reader In Gnome

A Google search turns up lots of dead ends. Some are pretty good, but most are completely useless. I tried a couple of the configuration variations suggested in the article and its comments and didn't have much luck. It turns out that it's actually easy. Just follow these simple steps:
  1. Download Gnome Gmail
  2. Install it! I used the .deb because I run Ubuntu.
  3. Go to System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications
  4. Select Gmail in the Mail Reader drop down
