It may be a stupid question... but how you manage to get plasma all transparent (second screen)?

Can confirm Gmail plasmoid locks up desktop for 30-90 seconds. Apps work fine.

But tray popups or clicking on or trying to switch desktops does not. eventually clears itself. If I Ctrl-Alt-Backspace during lockup to restart desktop get 3 differnt Akondai mail type errors. So appears gmail plasmoid or akondai don't play well together.

Since not using plasmoid zero lockups.

hi, it works just fine, but I have idea for improvement ;-)

I wish i could dock this little applet in the system tray, and also it would super cool if it would be able to autohide if no there is no mail.

Also: could you add option to configure mail app launched to check gmail?

I am working on "yet another email checker for gmail" called "qCheckGMail" and it does exactly what you are asking here.The icon will be greyish and autohidden when there are no new email and will be bluish and shown when there are emails.On error,the icon changes to red.

The page for the project is: https://github.com/mhogomchungu/qCheckGMail

I plan to make the first release in about a week's time and i am doing final touches now.

How about the ability to launch gmail in the browser of your choice by clicking on the notifier icon?

Yes, I know. Checkgmail was just an example. Isn't KDE known to be the richest, most luxurious?! It should deserve something better than a poor GTK app!

Thanks for the gift though I haven't tried it yet.

With a GTK applet, Checkgmail, one can perform some operations like "mark as read", "delete" etc. all without launching any external app, that is, through the applet itself.

Though it consumed around 50 MB (no apparent CPU cycle) in Lubuntu, it's worth every bit of it as it's a very convenient feauter and RAM is cheap.

Is this achiavable with your software without much trouble on your side?

Font is too big, and color is inadequate, IMHO. It is too obtrusive.
And still no translation support. :)

This is great, but, can you add more features? For example:
* possibility to add this into the system tray
* displaying number of unread mails
* interaction with KDE notifications

You open file account.h in source, and remove line #include <Global>. Save it and run make again.
