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

 Receiving multiple mails

Really good widget.
It would be great if, when multiples messages are received at once, all there subjects were written instead of just X mails received.

It would be great if when you receive a mail on a secondary address and you click on the icon, that address will be opened in the browser and not the default one that maybe has got no new mails.

 Getting error in debian

Hi, i downloaded 0.7.10 version. Installation went fine, but when i try to use it:

$ plasmoidviewer gmail-plasmoid
findServiceByDesktopPath: not found
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma_scriptengine_python/pyappletscript.py", line 21, in <module>
from PyKDE4.plasma import Plasma
RuntimeError: the sip module implements API v6.0 but the PyKDE4.plasma module requires API v5.0

Any idea on how to fix it ?

I'm using Debian Unstable and KDE 4.3.2

regards, and thanks for such an useful plasmoid :)

 Thanks for this plasmoid

I love this plasmoïd!!!

But since yesterday (2009-10-14) - when I updated my Kubuntu 9.10 - it doesn't work. The message error said that's impossible to create an engine of script python. Does anybody else have this problem?

(ps: excuse me for my bad english)
(ps2: i'm a completely newbie on linux, so I really don't know if the problem comes from my system or from this lovely plasmoid)

Hi Nabolingo,

The plamoid stopped working when I upgraded to karmic too I get the error message "Script initialization failed".

I have both plasma-scriptengine-pythong and python-qt installed.

How did you resolve this issue. I'd really appreciate the help.

Hi Vyncem,

I think I'll can't help you 'cause I'have'nt do anything to fix this... I just updated my Kubuntu...(with "sudo apt-get update" & "sudo apt-get upgrade")

PS: But I have approximatively the same problem with the "label" plasmoid but with an other engine (not the python one)

 security problem?

 by keepsea on: Nov 8 2009

Great widged - except for the fact that it can somehow see accounts that are not configured in the settings. Friend of mine just used Konqueror on my PC to check his email and logged off after that... but I can see the messages he got in my Gmail plasmoid - how is that even possible?
When I check gmail-plasmoid settings, his account is NOT there (so I cannot even remove it)! Can that plasmoid somehow read passwords or cookies from Konqueror's memory or something?
I hope that issue gets fixed soon because it is really cool widget and I thank you for that.

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.
