looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

As said: I'm looking for a really simple tray notifier that supports gmail, and it needs to work in fluxbox. I'm having no luck with the package search, since with most stuff I can't tell if it'll work with gmail.


I always roll 20s on my disbelieve checks.
You better believe it.

You probably want CheckGmail.

It looks really cool, but it seems to be broken.

For me, not so much. Judging by the comments in the AUR, it seems I'm not the only one.

$ checkgmail /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi/Gtk2.pm line 62.
Warning: Crypt::Simple not found ...
Warning: Crypt::Blowfish not found ...
Warning: FreezeThaw not found ...

CheckGmail requires the above packages for password encryption
Please download and install from CPAN (http://search.cpan.org) if you want to use this feature ...

XMLin() requires either XML::SAX or XML::Parser at /usr/bin/checkgmail line 3603
A thread exited while 2 threads were running.

Re: looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

You just lack some packages:

try:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::Simple'
and:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::SSLeay'


works fine for me too.. made me toss evolution again. big_smile

Re: looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

I'm aware that I "lack some packages". However, with a package manager that does dependency checking, lacking packages after installing is kind of the definition of "broken", eh?

Re: looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

indeed, it does. Since perl-xml-simple and perl-net-ssleay are in the arch package repository (current and extra).
But it actually has a depend on them, and i always thought xml::parser is installed with xml-simple.

What it's definitly lacking on are the encryption modules (wrote it in the package description)

Ability is nothing without opportunity.

Re: looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

This is weird. According to "perl -MCPAN" both XML::Parser and XML::SAX are up to date, but checkgmail still fails with

XMLin() requires either XML::SAX or XML::Parser at /usr/bin/checkgmail line 3603
A thread exited while 2 threads were running

Do I need to relogin for perl to be aware of these packages or something?

Re: looking for simple gmail tray notifier for fluxbox

xbuffy works with gmail. I made a package for it sometime ago, it is still on AUR.

However, it's not really a tray notifier, but usually sits on the desktop.

Quick notes on its usage are here.

However, I'm not sure if it will be what you're looking for, because as I said, it's not a tray notifier.
