Type: Mail Application
KGmailNotifier is a gmail notifier applet written
for KDE using Python and PyQt/PyKDE. It's greatly
inspired by the gmail notifier that can be found
When new mail has arrived in your inbox a small
window will popup, showing author and subject of
the newest mail. The underlined link (in blue)
will take you straight to your inbox with your
The reason I wrote this applet is because I had
always liked the original notifier mentioned
above, except for the fact that it just didn't fit
nicely in to the KDE environment. Also
KGmailNotifier provides some extra features I was
missing such as acoustic notification and support
for LEDs on notebooks and multimedia keyboards.
KGmailNotifier also uses the gmailatom library
written by Juan Grande for the original
Gmail-Notifier at Sourceforge.
Bug reports, critic, compliments, suggestions etc.
are highly welcome.
My todo list
- Fix bugs (in case someone reports any)
-Add i18n support
How to use:
Extract the archive to some place in your home
dir. Then run 'python kgmailnotifier.py' from
inside the KGmailNotifer dir.
That's it. Enjoy!
