gmail-plasmoid

Plasma 4 Extensions

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[/quote]
- 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[/quote]

On my system (Debian Testing/Squeeze) I got both versions (2.5 - for school and 2.6 - just for gmail-plsmoid) and gmail-plasmoid works fine. So you can install both versions, but you should choose the version for the system (its better to choose python 2.6). And in your favourite IDE set the interpreter you need for work. Hope it helped.

Just a hint, i dont expect you to dont know this: if you have installed multiple versions of python interpreter, you can run you python script with "python2.5 script.py" or write a little head into your source code "#!/usr/bin/env python" and ... thats it :)

Finally, I replaced this line

"relpath = os.path.relpath(str(self.mainScript()),str(self.applet().package().path()))"

with

"relpath = str(self.mainScript()).replace(str(self.applet().package().path()),'')"

in pyappletscript.py file


Now, gmail-plasmoid works with Python < 2.6

Hi,

In extenso, from Kubuntu 10.04 (and 9) the plasmoid is updating just fine but as soon as I try to embed it in the system tray plasmoid, it does not seem to get new/unread mails.

Hoping that can be easily solved.

Many thanks for that fine app.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you and, as with the other issues that have come up with respect to Kubunto 10.04, I will try to investigate this issue over the next few days.

hello!

this plasmoid seems to be really helpful to me!

unfortunately i can't get it working in Kubuntu 10.04.

i have plasma-scriptengine-python installed

i run the plasmoid and it's running, but doesn't displaying the new messages

i tried different configurations for the accounts username, trying just xxxxxxx or xxxxxxx@gmail.com, nothing seems to work.

is it a configuration issue or something else?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi,

gmail-plasmoid 0.7.13
openSuse + KDE 4.4

plasmoid works fine, EXCEPT it can't remember my username and password. it still keep ask, no matter if I flag "remember"

PS: would you take into consideration to implement also a google-reader counter ? maybe in this same plasmoid ? There is a chromium addon that makes it, and it's very convenient !

Nevermind... reboot pc and my problem was solved (removing-readding plasmoid didn't help). I guess Plasma is ... 99% ready still.

Yet, I'd love to see google reader implemented in this plasmoid ;)

I don’t use Kubuntu myself, but people seem to be having no end of problems with the KDE packages that they produce. If possible, please create an issue on the Google Code page for the project (http://code.google.com/p/gmail-plasmoid/) and I will see if I can figure out what is going wrong. Hopefully we can get this fixed for you shortly. As part of the issue description, please run the plasmoid in a console using the command below and let me know if any errors turn up:

Alright, it looks like another problem or inconsistency with the python bindings for KDE. Please start an issue on the Google Code site for the plasmoid as mentioned in my last message and we can debug the issue from there (I don't want to gum up the comments with a debugging thread). Thanks.

I find this plasmoid very useful, and i have one suggestion to make it even more useful.

It is about adding 2 buttons to the message tooltip: delete and mark as read

That is a good idea, but this would require quite a bit of work due to how gmail works and the lack of a proper api. Checking for new mail is easy since there is a read-only atom feed that can be used. However, adding these features requires interacting with the gmail web interface and, therefore, having to deal with fixing the features every time Google decides to alter the interface. However, not all is lost because there is someone submitting patches that attempt to use the webkit bindings to add features similar to your request, so there is hope that these features will be added in a later version.

I would also love to see mark as read and delete email buttons!

Here's a gnome gmail checker, that works really really well and has those features. Don't want to use it in KDE though, so maybe you could look into this code, to see how it's done?

The plasmoid is awesome. However, it always loads before the network connects when I start my laptop and then displays the not connected to a network message until it repolls.

It would be great if there was an option to delay the first poll by a user defined number of seconds on start up or make it repoll at a faster rate when no network is connected.

Thanks.

Thanks, I like your idea and I have had the same issue before. The problem is that the correct way to do this is to connect to the network up and down signals, but that does not seem to be supported yet in the python bindings. However, what I have done is altered the poling period to 10 seconds when the network is down, which seems reasonable. Below is a link to a testing version of the plasmoid with this change implemented. If possible, please test it out and let me know if it works for you:

Great Plasmoid!

I am using KDE 4.4 RC1 (no betas, upgraded straight from 4.3.2) on Kubuntu 9.10. I have had no problems with the plasmoid in the past, but it does not work now. The plasmoid shows up, I can change settings fine, and I can click on it to open gmail in a browser fine. However, it will not auto-update. I just get the gray icon with a "!".

Not sure if there have been some API changes.

This is a fantastic app, please keep up the good work.
