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]

Follow up. I don't think this is related to KDE SC 4.4.

Gmail turned on HTTPS by default, and I think that is causing the problem.

There have been some changes to the python bindings and I am working on getting the plasmoid to work again. If possible, can you test the version at the bottom of the following issue and let me know if it fixes your problem? Thanks.

Interesting. Hopefully we can figure out what the problem is. First, please let me know what is written in the pop-up dialog when you hover over the plasmoid. Second, it would be interesting to know if the same problem occurs or if any error messages are returned when you run the plasmoid using the plasmoid viewer (i.e. run “plasmoidviewer gmail-plasmoid” in a console). If any errors are returned in either of these situations then please open an issue on the Google Code page for this plasmoid (see the “Link” above the plasmoid description). Thanks.

There is a red x icon where the widget icon is suppose to be. The message reads:

Quote:"Could not create python ScriptEngine for gmail-plasmoid widget."

That means that one of the packages needed to run python plasmoids is either not installed or not working correctly (I was having the same issue under openSUSE until yesterday). The plasmoid should start working again once the packages are updated correctly. Sorry I cannot be more help.

After the connection is broken, mail is not checked.

If "gmial-plasmoid" try to check the mail while the broken internet connection, then after the connection is established, the mail will not be checked.

Sorry for my English.

Great plasmoid, the best I have in my desktop.
I'd like to suggest the plasmoid command executed when clicked the icon should be associated with every account. So, if I'm monitoring two accounts and a new mail arrive I can click on the notification an it executes the command associated with the account which received the new mail.
This way if I click the icon and I have two accounts it should popup a menu whit two options and execute the associated command according to the account I clicked.
I would be useful when I use to different methods or applications to check my email.

Nice plasmoid btw :)

Awesome Plasmoid!

I just wanted to pass along this little tidbit. My girlfriend has a Netbook which comes with a standard resolution of 1024x600. The plasmoid configuration screen does not have a scroll bar which prevents her from editing the bottom half of the configuration.

We connected her Netbook to an external monitor to get around the problem but I am sure there are plenty of others who would love to configure the plasmoid but simply cannot because of the screen real-estate limitation.

Thanks again for an awesome plasmoid!

Thanks for the comments and sorry about taking so long to get back to you. I think you are right about the configuration screen (it is something that I had not thought about). If possible, please take a look at the testing version of the plasmoid linked below and let me know if that configuration screen works better for you. Thanks again:

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.

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.

thanks,

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)

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 :)

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.

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.

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!

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.
