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)

How to uninstall:
- Run the following command at the command line:

plasmapkg -r gmail-plasmoid

 New icon system.

 by AlejandroNova on: Aug 26 2010
Score 50%

Can you update this plugin to use the new icon + tray system in KDE 4.4/4.5? This is a plasmoid, and KDE 4.5 can have plasmoids in my tray area. But I'm experiencing some issues.

1. When I hover over the app, a custom made tooltip appears. That custom tooltip isn't coherent with the new standards set by the KDE desktop.

2. When I try to right click on the icon, the tooltip interferes with my right click. I can try to right click five or six times before the plasmoid doesn't display its tooltip and display its menu instead.

All of those problems could be solved by using the now standard KDE tray + tooltip system. I fully understand that you made this plasmoid before that standard, and I congratulate you for that. But... can't we have an update?

Thanks for the comments, and you are right about the tooltip. Please give the latest version a try and see if it fixes your issue.

 Not working...

... hi, I installed this plasmoid via the integrated "add object" panel. I have archlinux and KDE4.4. I selected my system tray to show this plasmoid, and it does. But it simply does not monitor my gmail account at all: when I receive a mail I have no sign I did (even if I wait 10 minutes). The profile is correctly configured. The icon remains always red, with no nomber on it and no '!'.

done, works.

For those interested, using archlinux:

sudo pacman -U http://schlunix.org/archlinux/extra/os/x86_64/sip-4.10.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Is this EVER going to be ported with latest sip version?

I mean...it's naive to tell people: "Don't upgrade your system, otherwise it's not going to work" :)

Same problem here with Arch Linux 64bit and KDE 4.5.1 I've tried other plasmoids, same error. I guess it's a KDE bug.

Yes, seems to be a bug in KDE 4.5.1.

Here is workaround:
1) unpack it
2) issue install command for the folder, where you have unpacked it.


However, it doesn't work for me in 4.5.1
(I have succeeded in installing it,
but gmail-plasmoid causes Plasma to crash.
I think this is due to some Python issues.)

Installation works fine on Kubuntu Maverick with KDE 4.5.1. Gmail ID checking seems fine, but it doesn't look anymore for new messages.

 Kwallet integration

 by DarksideEE7 on: Sep 23 2010
Score 50%

First of all thanks for this great plasmoid!

Would it be possible to include kwallet integration so we don't have to enter our kwallet password every time we login to KDE? This plasmoid is prompting the kwallet for access every time, and it doesn't show a rule in the kwallet configuration menu under:
system settings/accounts details/kde wallet


Also, does anyone know if the latest sip still breaks this plasmoid? I've had it in my ignore list for my package manager for some time.

 latest sip/qt/whatnot broken?

 by pippolepippa on: Oct 3 2010
Score 50%

Thanks for the great work!

Unfortunately, latest opensuse 11.3 updates broke the plasmoid (again). I don't know who the culprit is, might be qt 4.7, sip 4.11, python or a combination.

Here are the symptoms:

1) I can't install without first unpacking

2) When running, plasmoid never reaches the "gray state". Running through plasmoidviewer produces the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "...../101229-gmail-plasmoid-0.7.15/contents/code/gmail.py", line 99, in resultData
if job.error() <> 0:
TypeError: C++ type 'QPair<QString,QString>' is not supported as a native Qt signal type

Commenting the lines 99-102 in the /contents/code/gmail.py makes it "work", but then there is no error check anymore :-(

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.
