This looks great. However, can you please make it so that it gets the information about things such as your email server from a program such as evolution or thunderbird? I think that it would be much better if the user only had to set these things once on their system instead of once for each program.

Ok, I got this working, and I love it. It's just the way I like it: simple.

But, this thing only shows a count of "all" email in the POP3 mailbox. Is there a way it can just count the total number of "unread" emails in the mail box?

A few comments above i asked how to configure justmail to check more than one pop-server.

i figured it out by myself

Here is how it works:

open justmail.theme with the editor of your choice (i used kwrite because of luxuary :P )
change the following line:
karamba x=0 y=0 w=165 h=80 locked=true interval=1000
multiplicate the number of pop-servers you want to check with 80 (i tried it with two, so it made 160) an set it as "h"
f.ex.:"karamba x=0 y=0 w=165 h=160 locked=true interval=1000"
copy everything thats between and and paste it a line below (must still be between the group-tags!)
add 80 (160 for the 3rd pop-server and so on) to every "y"-value in the copied code
make sure that you change the server, user and passwd ;)

that's it. pretty easy, but i cant explain it better with my bad english. if you have some problems and you're able to speak german - aks me ;)

bye

Ok, i'm not a programmer. Maybe i'm daft, but when I open the mails_pop3.pl file, I apparently have no idea how to set it up for my particular POP server, username, and password. I tried doing the obvious; that is replacing the crypic variable names already in the file with my own personal information, but no matter how I do it, the theme just doesn't seem to work. Please help! Can someone post their mails_pop3.pl file (with bogus username and password) for me to follow? Thank you!

======== English ==============
Open justmail.theme with kate or similar. edit the next line:

text x=73 y=45 sensor=program program="/path/to/scripts/mails_pop3.pl popserver username password"

Where /path/to/scripts/mails_pop3.pl replace to the correct path.

Where popserver replace to pop server adress.

and finally put your username and password.

========= Castellano =========

el popserver lo substitueis por la dirección del servidor pop.

y el username y password por el usuario y contrasenya.

this is the best email karamba theme for me...nice and simple. who wants clutter huh?

i was wondering though if there was a way to get it set up to work with a gmail account?

for gmail's pop access it requires you to log on using ssl on port 995. i've tried a couple of things in the .theme and .pl file but it's mostly just guess work and is getting me nowhere.

any help would be gratefully received.

thanks.

curious to know what items need to be 'updated' in the script, also is it possible to configure to use Thunderbird instead of Kmail?

thanks!

Just rightclick on the theme file and open it up with a editor of choice to reach the config file.

There you need to lead it to mails_pop3.pl, located in the scripts folder (path/to/justmail/scripts/mails_pop3.pl). You will also have to insert the address for your popserver, username and password.


In the config file you can also change icons that will apper (I gave you some, located in the images folder, you can also add some ugly background.

If you like the bird like me, just locate the the kmail trigger inside the config file and replace that with the command for opening up Tunderbird in your distro (Kubuntu = mozilla-thunderbird)

I explain a little more of what to do inside the configfile =). /// Freddan
