What about when you have more than just one email on the inbox and want to see the subject of other than the last received one?
You could add arrows in the pop-up dialog to navigate throught them or something like that.

As I already mentioned in an other post, KGmailNotifier is *A NOTIFIER*. Nothing more. I'm not planing to turn this into a mail reader, organizer, ....
However, if you really need such a feature you can just use a normal rss/atom-reader (Akregator works great for that and you can also use it to manage multiple accounts).
Sorry.

Python apps don't support session management afaik. So you'll need to start it manually. Try this:

- Go to your autostart folder (~/.kde/Autostart)

- Create a new text file, give it a name (e.g. start-kgmailnotifier) and write something like this in it:

#!/bin/bash
cd /path/to/KGmailNotifier
python kgmailnotifier.py

- Save the file and make it executable (right-click->Properties->Permissions)

Now it should start automatically.

Maybe you will add some features like the one seen in checkgmail: "mark as read", "delete", "archive" for new mails?

Why should a *notifier* take care of such stuff? As I have said on previous posts, I'm not going to bloat KGmailNotifier with features that have nothing to do with actual *notification*. If you really need a tool that can handle all your email related tasks, you should rather stick with CheckGmail. KGmailNotifier isn't meant as a replacement for (K)CheckGmail but as an alternative for people (such as myself) who want a light-weight notifier and don't need and don't want a tool filled with all kinds of features they never use. Please don't get me wrong here, I think your idea is a good one and I really appreciate your input, but it's just not what I had in mind for this app.
Sorry.

I understand you point of view, thanks for information. Despite missing some "non-notifier" features I really like your application. Thanks for creating it :-)

I'm really looking forward to your app. Unfortunately when I try to have the app log in and check my mail, I get an error that states

"unknown error retrieving cookies"

Any ideas?

 Great! But...

I love your notifier and I am already using it :) But I still see some things which could be (IMVHO ;-)) improved.

  • If you could show a number of new messages in a tray icon (like KCheckGmail does) it would be much more convenient than hovering over that icon or clicking it.


  • About clicking - when the box is visible, the second click should close the box instead of showing it again. I know that there is a close button, or I can wait, but that would be even better (no additional mouse movement).


  • And the last thing - have you ever thought about translations? I could help you with polish one, If you wish :-)


  • When I have connection problems (and unfortunately, I have some lately :-/ ), KGmailNotifier tends to hang up - box freezes and kwin has to kill this app.

    Hi.

    To 1: Personally I don't like having numbers on my systray (just a matter of taste, I guess), but I agree that it would be useful. I'll add this as an option.

    To 2: This does sound reasonable. On the other hand I've been thinking it would be better to make the popup work in a way that clicking the tray icon would just reset the timer (before closing) instead of reopening it with animation. This would be useful if you didn't have time to read sender and subject since you could make it stay up longer. Anyway, I'll think about it (again as an option).

    To 3: I'm not sure yet what approach would be best for translations. The KDE i18n system only seems to work on apps that are installed system wide. However I'd like to keep this app installable anywhere (in a single dir, that is) so you can just extract and run. I still have to think about how to implement this. I'll gladly accept your translations once KGmailNotifier is ready to use them:-)

    To 4: I never had this problem myself, but I suppose this would happen when the Gmail server is actually reachable but retrieving the atom takes way too long (for what reason ever). If it can not connect at all you would get a "Connection failed!" immediately. Not sure what can be done about this, but I'll think about it.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    It would be great to have a choice. Or it may stay as you suggested, but it should be an easier way to close the box. Maybe clicking anywhere on the box (except link, of course)?

    I like it that way.

    All I need to reproduce this problem is unplugging my network cable and selecting option "check mail now".

    OK. That explains it. There's no connection but your network system is still running and doesn't know about it. I'll see if I can build in some timeout function for such cases. Thanks.

    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.
