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

I had the same issue after upgrading to 4.5.2. I uninstalled it and installed the newest version. Then all was good.

 Font settings not honoured

 by shishirverma on: Oct 10 2010
Score 50%

When I click on gmail-plasmoid, it changes the fonts from my default firefox settings to Times-new-roman(or some font that looks like Times-new-roman). My firefox settings don't let pages use their own fonts, it seems gmail-plasmoid somehow bypasses that check and that behaviour gets inherited by all google sites, imdb.com.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
-Make sure there are not firefox windows open.
-Click on gmail-plasmoid. Fonts should change to something other than what is configured in preferences.

I don't know if anyone else has seen this issue. this started happening once I upgraded to KDE 4.5.
I am running :openSUSE11.3/KDE4.5.2/QT-4.7.0/python-kdebase4-4.5.2-508.2.x86_64

I do not believe that your issue is related to the plasmoid. The only thing the font setting is used for is for the number overlay on the plasmoid icon. The font in Firefox, or any other browser for that matter, is not affected by this setting.

Thank you for the quick response. It might have something to do with my settings.

Hi, great job.
How can I delay this application for a few seconds at startup?
My network conection is a bit slow.

You can do that in Configuration==>Update behaviour, and write 1 (minute) in "Start delay"

I just wanted to thank you. Keep it up!

Any chance you could add support for reading mails, starring, marking as read and archiving like checkgmail (http://checkgmail.sourceforge.net/) does?

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.
