Description:

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.

Features:
- *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):

Quote:
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:

Quote:
plasmapkg -r gmail-plasmoid

That sounds like a problem with your KDE installation. You will need to figure out the applicable package for your distribution that contains the python engine for plasmoids. If you do figure it out, please post back here how you solved the issue in case others encounter the same issue.

Hey, you are right, i had the correct package installed but it was bugged. The last update to that package (testing/kdebindings-python on archlinux) fixed it.

I have tested the plasmoid with a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.4 and again after upgrading to KDE 4.6.5 and have been unable to reproduce your problem. However, I am in the middle of making further changes to the plasmoid that may help out with your issue. Please stay tuned for a new version in the next few days.

Please try out the new 0.7.18 version of the plasmoid and see if it fixes your issue. If you continue to have an issue please try deleting your accounts and adding them back, or deleting the entire configuration for the plasmoid. Hopefully this new version will work better for you.

at last, previous version didn't. Thanks for fixing it.

One suggestion: ability to edit settings for saved accounts would be useful.. Currently if I want to change anything I have to delete account and re-create it..

I'm glad it is working for you. For the accounts, you should be able to double-click an account to modify it. If that does not work let me know.

You are not the only one who is having this issue, but I have been unable to reproduce the issue (I am also running on a fully updated Arch install, along with openSUSE 11.4 and Kubuntu 11.04). I am not sure why kwallet does not seem to work correctly for some people. I'm not sure if it will help, but try to delete the configuration file for the plasmoid completely, or remove and then add back the plasmoid to your panel or system tray. Perhaps with a fresh configuration it will work. I will also try to dig into this further and try to find a solution to the issue.

 2 bugs

I have problems with password storing too. After login pops up request to enter my wallet password to unlock it (application "Plasma Desktop Shell" has requested...), until I grant access icon of gmail-plasmoid is coloured like there is unread messages but does not show any text. Right after unnlocking wallet icon turns gray with exclamation mark, tooltip says that my only account has "blank username or password". I've checked via KDE Wallet Manager - correct password is stored in wallet, but for strange reason it is not retrieved, I have to enter it again and again in "gmail-plasmoid settings" after each login.

Also specific label to check is not considered with default fetching mechanism, gmail-plasmoid checks my inbox instead.

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with KDE.

Thank you for your message. I have not been able to reproduce the issue with kwallet, but there have been multiple issues with retreiving passwords from the wallet in the past. It currently works for me on fully updated Arch Linux, openSUSE 11.4 and Kubuntu 11.04 installations. However, it apparently causes problems for others on identical configurations so there is some underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Please try deleting the plasmoids configuration file completely and resetting your accounts (or try removing the plasmoid and re-adding it to your panel or system tray). I will also try to look further into the issue. If you could open a new issue on the Google Code site for the plasmoid (the homepage link above will take you there) we can try to further debug the issue.

As for the label check, you are right that it did not work with version 0.7.18 since I had introduced a stupid bug (I don't use that feature anymore myself, and did not notice that I had broken it). Please test the new version 0.7.19 and let me know if the issue is resolved. Thanks.

Thank you, version 0.7.19 solved problem with label. BTW, you forgot to bump X-KDE-PluginInfo-Version in it.

I was able to reproduce my kwallet problem on clean install of Kubuntu 11.04 into Virtual Box. I've created new gmail account for this test, so this virtual machine does not contain any private data. I'm going to upload exported virtual machine image (about 1GB) somewhere and open a new issue on the Google Code once it will be ready for downloading.

Thank you for your help tracking down the kwallet bug. It appears to be a bug in the KDE packages used by some distributions (including Kubuntu), and the new version 0.7.20 of the plasmoid includes a workaround to address the bug.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
