Google changed GMail login procedure. The 0.5.8 version was released before I realize that it had changed.

I already wrote a fix to KCheckGMail (KDE3 only, yet) (not yet for hosted domains/accounts).

It's on the 0_5_8_x branch of the development repository.

Feedback is very welcome.

Yes, KCheckGMail was already ported to KDE4.
There isn't a KDE4 release, yet.
Testers are very very welcome.

You can download a snapshot at:

Its would be nice if you can make google login procedure in separate module or file definition so we dont need to compile whole tarballs just to meet match new google login procedure ;-)

Hi,
Yes, KCheckGmail will be ported to KDE4. In fact, the port is in progress. You can check out some screenshots at:

Very nice work!
i hope that it will be published soon (even if not finished!)
there are new strings to translate for the new version ?

Report

lpereira

I will do my best to publish it ASAP.

The port was forked from the trunk (master) branch. I did not change any string. So the translations to be done are the new ones that are in the master branch. I didn't check, but I think that there are only a couple. No big deal.

a change at google does indeed now cause kcheckgmail to fail (issue addressed in 0.5.7.5); but even when it all should work fine if cookies are disabled kcheckgmail still won't work.

I'm so sorry, I forgot to merge back some translations to the 0_5_7_x branch. The Catalan, Simplified Chinese, and the updated Hungarian translations were not included in this release either, damn.

I'll see what other changes I can make and release yet another minor version from the 0_5_7_x with all the translations.

Can you make support for various accounts?

And Konqueror integration? (Like as GMail Manager in Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/1320).

Thank you for this app. :)

Support for multiple accounts has already been requested and will be added as soon as the backend makes it possible.

What do you mean by konqueror integration? it is a system tray panel, why would you want it in a konqueror window?
