Just saw this over at gnomedesktop.org. Apprently its a tool to keep track of the status of your Gmail inbox! I was hoping somebody would do this. Now we just need to serve up ebuilds! :D

Being an avid GMail fan I find this most excellent, looking forward to see it mature in future versions.

I tried it, it didn't work really well...

First of all I couldn't find the HTTPS Ruby bindings (ruby-libopenssl?)

Then when I run it, it always says I have 7000 new messages...


Any clues?

I'm having similar issues, I've surely screwed something up because after talking to the dev this is NOT how it is supposed to work =)

v1.1 is out now with notification, icon turns into a red envelope type looking thing when new unread messages are in your inbox, and he is looking into more type of notifications (like presenting number of new msgs in trayicon etc).

Until this project matures may I suggest a neat gdesklet :
http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org/categories.php?func=gd_show_app&gd_app_id=171

Peek at my screenshot link in my signature to see it in action.

That's a nice little desklet. However, I edited the XML file to remove the image and shrink the width. It fits nicely and unobtrusively in the corner that way. :)

I downloaded the ebuilds from breakmygentoo and just put them in the overlay, but after emerging gtray doesn't appear in any menus to add to the panel... does anybody know where it needs to be for that?

You need to manually add gtray to your .xinitrc or wherever applications start up with your window manager.
You can make sure gtray itself is working by typing gtray in a terminal.

Are there any other apps besides Gtray and the desklet for checking gmail? I don't really like either one all too much.

I think kde has a gtray equivalent app. Just curious though, what exactly do you want the mail checker to do?

Play a sound? If you're using gtray you can modify TrayIcon.rb in /usr/lib/gtray to look something like this:
Code:
if new_messages > 0 then
         @icon.set("gmail.png")
         IO.popen("echo Mail >| /dev/speech")

      else

Or use something like ogg123 /mnt/music/your_favorite_mail_tune in place of the echo speech thing.

That being said, I wouldn't mind if gtray was written in python or some other language that I already had on my computer. I think its the only ruby app I have.

no. sounds are bad.

I just was scared off by all the ruby dependencies. it seems like such a simple app...can't really justify installing all the dependencies for one little mail checker that only checks gmail accounts.

[edit] ok i gave in and installed it for now. :)
I did a 'emerge -p gtray > gtray.deps' before hand so if I uninstall it in the future I can remove all those ruby deps.

Yeah, it is a simple app. When I get better at python I might rewrite it. But don't hold your breath, I'm bad at coding and will probably take a long time if I ever start, let alone finnish.
Edit: And I've just started learning python. But I will look at it. I wasn't happy with all the dependencies either.

I get this
bash-2.05b$ python KNewGmail.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "KNewGmail.py", line 18, in ?
from kdecore import KApplication, KIconLoader, KIcon, KConfigSkeleton
ImportError: No module named kdecore

I am running KDE but I don't know where I should I put the files.

Do you have pykde? I'm not a kde person, but I would think that's where kdecore would be.

hey ppl, sorry I want to bring up this thread again :P I didn't know there's gtray until 2 days ago
I quickly got something working w/ gtk and curl last night...
I didn't like all that ruby dependency...
I already have curl for electronicsheep so I don't mind that

download here if you want to check it out, and if you don't mind point out any mistakes I make:
http://s92717864.onlinehome.us/gmailtray.tar.gz
like I said, you need USE="ssl" emerge curl :)

note that it's very barebone right now, I have exams in a week so one night is as much as I can spend on this for the time being

read README file
edit gmailtray.c to include your username and password...
and edit stuff in main() if you want to change the time interval...

i just read about and tried a similar tool for the gnome desktop which is mor hid compliant and looks even better to me.
it supports multiple accunts in one applet such as gmail pop3 (no ssl auth at the momet) and local mail dirs

give it a trie:
screens@http://www.nongnu.org/mailnotify/#screenshots
home@http://www.nongnu.org/mailnotify/
noticed@http://www.gnomedesktop.org/article.php?sid=1892&mode=thread&order=0&thold=1

what we really need is a gkrellm plugin for gmail support

gtray emerged from breakmygentoo 1.1-r1 both with and without ssl enabled with USE decides my username and password are wrong :-\ weird. going to try and find an ebuild or something for that one posted above

the gdesklets sucked and only updated once then froze.... :-\

Google changed something in their mail settings about a week and a half ago, so gtray and the one posted above haven't worked since. They both worked flawlessly before that.
