Attach to Email Service Menu

A service menu for Konqueror that works in conjunction with a python script to allow the user to select multiple files and add them as attachments to an email using whatever mail client is configured. If a directory is selected, then its contents will be attached to the email recursively.

To Install:
0) tar -jxf attach-to-email-servicemenu.tar.bz2

1) cd attach-to-email-servicemenu

2) ./install.sh --remove-old
#Get rid of previous installations.

3) ./install.sh [--global-install|--local-install]
#Depending on whether you want system-wide or not.

The Readme file included explains how to set this up for different email clients.


0.7.5 New Italian translation by Giurerro.

0.7.4 New Russian translation by Kalimullin Arthur and completed French translation by LaFleche.

0.7.3 New German translation by Adrian Freihofer and partial French translation by LaFleche. Also added instructions for KMail.

0.7.2 New Hungarian translation by Paul Körössy, some minor cleaning, and instructions for Mozilla Thunderbird.

 Different ?

Can someone explain to me in what it is different from the already existing option in konqui to send file in an email, directories being zipped?

I think the one that comes with your Konqueror installation only supports KMail, while this service menu lets you use any e-mail client.

 patch thunderbird

For using with Mozilla Thunderbird 2 (Kubuntu gutsy), I had to change the python script:
- line 109, no \' around %s : attachments.append("%s" % (path))
- line 117, comma separation and "file://" : attachments=join(attachments,",file://")

Good servicemenu, but a little heavy for the translation system in my opinion: for 4 sentences, you may include them in the python script rather than to create a lot of tiny locale folders.

Why did you choose ~/.kde/bin rather than the common ~/bin ? As ~/bin is already in the PATH variable, you don't have to modify attachToEmail.desktop during the install process (more simple).

 patch for kde4

i had to remark lines 105 >> 109

#if os.path.isabs(path):
#if find(emailclient,"kmail")!=-1 or find(emailclient,"evolution")!=-1:
#kmail and evolution will interpret http char codes even for local files;
#this compensates for that.

for attachments to work fine in kmail

and copy the generated .desktop file from the current folder to
(for global kde4 availability)

thank you for a beautiful and useful service menu :-)

After applying this:
and modifying 'kde-config' to 'kde4-config' in the following lines in attach-to-email it works now in KDE4:

emailclient="$(kde-config --prefix)/bin/kmail -s %s --body %B --attach %A"
kdeprefix=commands.getoutput("kde-config --prefix")
kdelocalprefix=commands.getoutput("kde-config --localprefix")

But still have problem: I get an error message with wrong character in the filename if the name of the attachment contains '_' characters.

It would be nice this servicemenu to be updated for KDE4.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
