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)

- Run the following command at the command line:

plasmapkg -r gmail-plasmoid

 Getting unread email

 by c0rdawg on: Jul 14 2010
Score 50%

I was wondering if there was a way to show all unread emails instead of just the unread emails in your inbox. I use many labels and filters so most of my unread emails are not in my Inbox. I noticed that if I changed the atomurl in gmail.py to "https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/unread" I am able to see all my unread emails. Is there a way you could add this as an option in a future version, or is there a better way that I can achieve what I'm looking for?

Thanks for the great plasmoid!

ah whoops, guess I should have tested this out better. Looks like if you use the label unread it works.

 New count no longer displaying

 by DarksideEE7 on: Jul 19 2010

Let me say first and foremost thank you for this amazing plasmoid, my favorite by far.

I'm currently troubleshooting to see if something I have done has caused this, however I'm unsuccessful so far.

If I check my mail it doesn't display the new unread count, plus there is no notification.

If I right click>check mail now, then press ctrl+alt+F1 to see the terminal output it says 'still fetching'.

The problem first started with kdemod, and I've been planning on going back to KDE so I went ahead and removed kdemod entirely, then removed .kdemod4, then installed KDE........same thing.

I've been running this plasmoid for about a year with the occasional update from kdemod breaking it....but other than that it's working great.

Any ideas? I'm about to create an entirely new user account to see if I can recreate there.

While I'm not sure if this is the same problem, it sounds a lot like the follwoing issue that 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.

Yes that is exactly what I'm experiencing. I guess I could find an old mirror with the older version of sip to fix this.....

They have pretty much all of the info that I could provide.
Arch x86_64 fully updated
sip 4.10.5-1
pyqt 4.7.4-2

I've just installed the newest version of gmail-plasmoid and it keeps telling me that no account is configured, although I did configured my gmail account in the accounts tab.. what's going on?

While I'm not sure if your problem is caused by the same root cause, the post immediately above yours deals with exactly the same symptoms (as do a number of other threads). The issue is being tracked at the following address:


Please see if your issue is related to the one linked, which appears to be caused by certain versions of sip. If you have any insight or additional information you can provide it would be very helpful.

 Outstanding plasmoid.

 by themage on: Jul 25 2010

Nice work mate.

I have two questions though.

I've just installed the plasmoid on KDE 4.4.5

1. I use the plasmoid to monitor two separate gmail accounts. Is it possible to selectively open accounts via the plasmoid?

At present the plasmoid displays unread mail in both accounts correctly yet I can only access the one account. A manual login is required for the second account.

2. And this is just me being pedantic. The number displaying the amount of unread emails is not 'centred' horizontally as per the screenshot you have provided only vertically.

Any suggestions?

 other providers

Since KMail has to be open to check the inbox, this is very usefull. How difficult would it be, to port it for other providers/integrate a provider chooser to the config?

The plasmoid does not work for me since Gmail's face has changed. Has anybody met with this problem?

Thanks a lot,

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.
