Hello

Since i updated to Kubuntu 13.04 and using KGmailNotifier 0.5.2 (installed via Muon Package Manager) I have this window when checks the first time since i started KGmailNotifier (in spanish) http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/3011/grds.png

Translated:
You are about to log in to the site "mail.google.com" with the username "*****", but this website doesn't need authentication. It is possible that this is an attempt to deceive.

Is "mail.google.com" the site that you want to visit?

In the past, i don't see this window, What is producing this?

Hi,
I'm using kgmailnotifier, whick works very well for me. The only problem comes when configuring konqueror instead of firefox as default browser. Whith firefox it works ok, but with konqueror it downloads a tmp file with the "...loading..." message of gmail, and opens it both with konqueror and firefox. Is that a bug of the app? Or have I made some mistake configuring konqeror as default browser?
Thanks a lot.

I can reproduce this behavior when Konqueror is set as default browser and KGmailNotifier is configured to use the default. It should work if you configure KGmailNotifier to use Konqueror explicitly. I'll try to fix this in the next release.

instead of clicking to get the popup, I'd like a setting that would make clicking go right to the website, so that is done in one click instead of two. Thanks!

Otherwise:

ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in

On another note, it doesn't work without kwallet running. I disable kwallet. Can it be free from it?

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?

Depiction of problem: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9408310/images/kgmailnotifier.png

My system has three displays and I'm having trouble getting the yellow popup-window to appear above the system tray on my primary display. Despite configuring kgmailnotifier to 'Lock popup window to primary screen", the popup still appears on a non-primary display(screen).

I cannot seem to use the settings for the horizontal or vertical offset to manualy position the popup. When I try to increase the offsets from a value of "0" the popup only moves left but I need the popup to move right towards my primary display. As such, in order to move the popup right I would need negative pixel values which the configuration does fields do not allow to be input.

Hi. I noticed that KGmailNotifier doesn't let my soundcard go into powersave mode if sounds are enabled. Disabling them while KGmailNotifier is running it's not enough, I have to restart it. I also noticed that when I start it, it always disables the powersave mode. With "lsof | grep /dev/snd" I found out that KGmailNotifier is always using the pcm device.
I solved this problem commenting out "m_audioPlayer = new AudioPlayer();" and replacing "m_audioPlayer->play();" with that: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/phonon-overview.html#playback. However I don't know anything of C++ and I hope that someone else will solve this problem.
I also noticed that shell commands are not allowed to turn on/off the led. Why don't you replace in ledHandler.cpp "ledProc << m_ledOffCommand;" with "ledProc.setShellCommand(m_ledOffCommand);"?

Thanks.

I've updated the it.po file in the unmaintained folder, but I noticed that fabrizio2210 had already done it (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=55375&forumpage=7#c340186 ). If you need it let me know.

I've made some changes in source code.
I've added little feature - when option "Display number ..." is selected and you'll get connection error number of unread messages will remain on tray icon.
Other changes is setting SIGIGN for segmentation fault signal and one other change - it helps with app crash I've gotten before (little workaround - I haven't noticed any side effect of this crash except annoing communication). I think it should help for problem described by EagleScreen.

Hello, I am suffering on crashes very often in KDE 4.5. I have obtained a backtrace from kcrash and KGmail notifier is crashing in main.cpp line 44:
KGmailNotifier *kgmailnotifier = new KGmailNotifier();

My operating system is Kubuntu 10.10.
Please take a look at the full backtrace here:

Kgmailnotifier is very useful for me. Because usually I use Kontact/Kmail as E-Mail client. But when I'm out for business than I'm not able to sync all my mail stuff between desktop-pc and laptop. So I use kgmailnotifier on my notebook - it's more flexible for me (I use an IMAP account ... :-) )

Personally, I would prefer if KGmailNotifier could check the ALL Mail instead of the Inbox - as many messages are never seeing the inbox.

(On Ubuntu 9.10, I do not get the sound notification to work, no idea why.)

Thank you for your consideration.

I would be really good if the icon only appeared when emails are there.
At present it just takes up room in my system tray.

Is there something I can change in the code ?

Thanks

In gmail I set up filters which automatically move some messages to imap subfolder (archive message and add label). This messages are still unread (I see this in kmail), but this app doesnt show this new messages.

It is possible to show unread messages in other imap subfolder (they are archived unread messages with label)?

Ok, with google I fond atom feed for all unread messages:

https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/unread

So I changed line in src/account.cpp from:

m_atomFileUrl->setPath("/mail/feed/atom");

to:

m_atomFileUrl->setPath("/mail/feed/atom/unread");

and this apps show me new messages. It is possible add this fix to new version?

Are you sure this is correct installation guide?

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make
make install (as root)


(What type of dots after --prefix?)


I couldn't install it on my openSuse 11.2

Is the a rmp-based pack?
