A Gmail notification widget for your desktop or panel.

This widget is designed to be docked in a panel, or added to your desktop, and display the number of unread messages in multiple Gmail accounts. Clicking on the widget will open the Gmail account in your favorite browser. The widget is written in python, meaning that there is no compiling necessary as long as you have the required script-engine installed.

For more screenshots visit the project homepage.

- *NEW* New simplified version re-implemented in qml and javascript available for testing (very early version with little error checking and many features missing and/or removed).
- *NEW* New qml version likely requires KDE 4.8 (but may work with KDE 4.7).
- *NEW* Testing qml version will coexist with existing gmail-plasmoid (testing version is called gmail-plasmoid-qml).
- *NEW* Any comments regarding new qml version appreciated.

- Selectable fetching mechanism to address multiple issues (see "Misc." configuration tab)
- Dynamic network connection detection
- Bulgarian, Chinese Traditional, Czech, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and Ukrainian translations
- Supports multiple Gmail accounts and Gmail labels
- Supports Gmail hosted domains
- Uses KWallet to securely store passwords
- Configurable icon and text font, size and color
- Configurable command run upon clicking the widget
- Configurable notifications using the KDE notification system
- Includes notification for when no unread emails exist (useful for running command to turn off message indicator LEDs, etc.)
- "Check email now" menu option to force email check upon command
- Ability to manually pause and resume email checking
- Threads context menu that shows unread messages on right-click

Please let me know if you find any problems or would like some new features included. The best place to request new features is on the project's homepage.

How to install:
- Download the latest version
- Uninstall any previous version (see instructions below)
- Run the following command in the directory where the file was placed (updated to reflect the actual filename):

plasmapkg -i gmail-plasmoid-0.7.20.plasmoid

- The widget should now be listed in your "Add Widgets" screen

Note: If you get missing script-engine errors when loading the widget you need to install the plasma python script-engine (in openSUSE this requires the "python-kdebase4" and "python-devel" packages, in Fedora this requires the "kdebase-workspace-python-applet" package, in Kubuntu this requires the "plasma-scriptengine-python" package)

plasmapkg -r gmail-plasmoid

 plasma-script engine

 by lollypop on: May 19 2010
Score 50%

after updating KDE to 4.4 gmail-plasmoid doesn't starts with a string "script initialization failed". When I run "$plasmoidviewer gmail-plasmoid" I have the following error:
plasmoidviewer(3085)/python (plugin) KPythonPluginFactory::create: Path to plugin code is: "/usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma_scriptengine_python/pyappletscript.py"
plasmoidviewer(3085)/python (plugin) KPythonPluginFactory::create: Returning result qobject
Traceback (most recent call last):

relpath = os.path.relpath(str(self.mainScript()),str(self.applet().package().path()))
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'relpath'"

I know this is not a problem of gmail-plasmoid, but of script engine.
But I have updated scriptengines of plasma, and python-dev packages and many more. But It doesn't works.

If you look at:


you'll see, that the function:

os.path.relpath(path[, start])

is for python 2.6> only but the version of python in Debian Testing/Squeeze is 2.5 (as far as i know*). So, i suggest, the only solution is to upgrade to python 2.6. Or is there another solution?

* aptitude show python | grep -i verze
Verze: 2.5.4-9

On my system (Debian Testing/Squeeze) I got both versions (2.5 - for school and 2.6 - just for gmail-plsmoid) and gmail-plasmoid works fine. So you can install both versions, but you should choose the version for the system (its better to choose python 2.6). And in your favourite IDE set the interpreter you need for work. Hope it helped.

Just a hint, i dont expect you to dont know this: if you have installed multiple versions of python interpreter, you can run you python script with "python2.5 script.py" or write a little head into your source code "#!/usr/bin/env python" and ... thats it :)

Finally, I replaced this line

"relpath = os.path.relpath(str(self.mainScript()),str(self.applet().package().path()))"


"relpath = str(self.mainScript()).replace(str(self.applet().package().path()),'')"

in pyappletscript.py file

Now, gmail-plasmoid works with Python < 2.6

Thanks for the great plasmoid. It has become a standard part of my desktop. I think it can be even better if it can make use of plasma tool tips.

I mean it will show a nice plasma tool tips instead of dialog when the mouse hover over it. Plasma tool tips support move animations across applets therefore will make it better integrate with plasma desktop.

Thanks again for the nice work.

I actually used to use plasma tooltips, but the issue was that I could not (or did not figure out how) to control the length of time that the tooltip was displayed (it would show for a short period of time and then fade out). This was difficult if you had a large list of emails as you needed to keep triggering the tooltip, which was a pain. If there is a way to have the tooltip stay visible until the mouse is moved off of the plasmoid then I could use tooltips instead. Please let me know if you know how to do this or, better yet, have a patch to submit.

Do you think it is possible to pass login information to the browser the way gtalk does it on windows?
This way checking mail would become a one-click task instead of entering login information every time.
Thanks for this great plasmoid.

It seems that it can't control messages.
I've tried to remove and add again the plasmoid, set the addresses, but it still says "no profile".
I don't know where to look to give you more information.

same for me after upgrading to pyqt 4.7.4.
Loading the plasmoid on plasmoidviewer produces "Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)".
The plasmoid looks like it is checking for new mail but never completes this or reports a failure.

Interesting. I don't use that signal directly, so this looks like an upstream problem with the plasma python bindings. I will investitgate further, and I believe that this is the same problem raised in the following issue on the google-code site:


If you have any further information please post it there. Thanks.

Hmmm......I don't know how I missed this thread but I'm having the exact same problem. It doesn't successfully check or display threads after the update.
I originally thought it was a kdemod problem (they take a few days to release packages after a pyqt update), but I removed it and installed KDE....same result.

Hopefuly we can figure this out, but I do not have a hosted account to do any testing. If you send me a private message with your email address I can try to help you debug this issue. Thanks.

While I'm not sure if you are having the exact same problem, the issue above is being tracked at the following address:


It seems to be related to certain versions of sip, but we are still in the process of tracking down the root cause. However, any insight or additional information you can provide would be very helpful.

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.
