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

 Password prompt issue ctd.

 
 by warnec on: Sep 11 2009
 
Score 50%

So every time I open KDE I still get this prompt. When the prompt window is open, I get no wallet icon in my tray, so the wallet must be closed. THe wallet icon appears as soon as I write my password to the prompt. I tried setting the wallet to autostart with the system in SystemSettings, but don't know the command for it. (There are no commands like "kwallet", kdewallet" or "wallet")

 Password prompt issue ctd. /2

BTW, won't making it autostarted make it ask for password just like it does now? Should it be by any way possible to have it always opened at the start of the system without supplying it with the password first?

And you said about some issue with KIO/Kwallet that the other plasmoid developers were saying about as well. Do you think it might be a bug? If so, is there any bug report for this?

You do not need to autostart Kwallet as it will be started automatically the first time that a program tries to access the wallet. If you set a password for your wallet then you will get a password prompt each time you log in, but you can also ways set a blank password, and then there will be no password prompt upon login and the plasmoid will work without asking for any passwords (I have it set up this way on one computer on which I am not overly concerned about password security). Basically, go into your Personal Settings, go to the Advanced tab, click on KDE Wallet and then make sure the KDE wallet subsystem is enabled.

As for a bug report, I am not sure if there is a report and I have not reported one. It would be in KIO, and the issue is the fact that it still prompts the user for a password even when one is supplied in the calling arguments. If you find a matching bug report please let me know.

 Fast autorefresh

 
 by ValentinPavlyuchenko on: Sep 18 2009
 
Score 50%

Hello again,

I have a feature proposition:
For example I have email checking every 10 minutes and at some moment I see that e-mail have arrived. I click on the plasmoid and open gmail in my browser/mail program/etc. So there is a huge possibility that I will read that email in 1 minute (or even less) after clicking on the plasmoid.

Is there a place for the following feature: during next few minutes after clicking email will be checked very often (30 seconds as example), and after that time the checking will be done as usual (10 minutes in my example).
Why I propose this - because this will eliminate the need to click on "Check email now" after reading email to make indicator gray again. It will be useful for me, and, I hope, for others too.

I think that is a good idea, and I will look into it and look again at Google’s guidelines for how often to poll the Gmail service. My use of the plasmoid is much like yours, although I have my polling time set to 5 minutes and I keep a mental note of when I have read the messages that are displayed. I think the best solution will come when Akonadi is fully integrated into Plasma. That way a universal mail checker could be written easily that would follow more of the Plasma structure (I don’t use a data engine in my plasmoid because it would not allow me to add the features I wanted) and would also provide almost instant updates through the use of IMAP IDLE. I’m keeping an eye on that front, but in the shorter term I will take a look at your suggestion when I have a moment (which does not seem to be very often these days).

 new pykde bindings problem

 
 by dkarnout on: Sep 22 2009

As new pykde bindings' readEntry provide QVariants, your plasmoid cannot initialize.
I think this is solved by changing all your
readEntry(...) to readEntry(...).toString()
and all your int(readEntry(...)) to readEntry(...).toInt()[0]
but check it yourself, i may be mistaken.

No problem, and your message is a good reminder that I may want to clean some of that stuff out of the plasmoid now that KDE 4.3 has been released. I’ll put that on my list of things to do.

 Opening multiple inboxes

I have a feature request:

Currently, when you click on the plasmoid, it opens the first defined gmail account.

It would be nice that all accounts that have unread messages were opened, and if there are no new messages then behave as it does now.

Congratulations for your great work!

That sounds like an interesting feature to include, and I am working on something right now that would be required to implement this. I am adding the ability to send a url to the browser that logs into Gmail (instead of only opening an account that is already logged in). However, I am encountering some issues with the Gmail offline feature occasionally causing problems and also some password exposure issues. However, if I can get those issues figured out then I would be in a good position to implement your suggestion.

Great and fast feedback! I hope you solve these problems soon so you can improve even more one of the most useful plasmoids out there :)

Thank you so much!

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
