Well it's been a long time since I looked at superkaramba themes... It made my system lock up so I threw it off.

The last version of kubuntu I used it with must have been gutsy or something, a while back anyway.

Back then, the prerequisites where:
* superkaramba
* python (off course)
* wget (as described in the topic start)

If you could send in the console output (blank your password and such ;) ) maybe I can help out.

Thanks for downloading! - Dec 31 2008

Hi all!
It's been a while since I last posted here, I've been really busy. Though I haven't quit on the gMail Reader! I saw that a lot of you where still having problems with the initialization of the theme. To be honest: it wasn't nice. Unpacking the zip, hacking the code, adding it manually to superkaramba... That's no easy config, I agree.

I decided to finally look into QT and PyQT to create a nice login dialog, and I succeeded! Now you just download an skz file, (double-)click it and (if it's the first time you run it) you'll get presented with a nice login script. Type in your login information and enjoy :-) You can later always alter your login by choosing the 'login' from the 'Configure Theme' menu.

As always: you are free to give comment, propose improvements and so on ;-)

Greetz Nebula!

P.S. @ Benedict: Yeah that sound like a network problem. Try opening the port used by the gmail atom feed. - Jul 02 2007

That's strange, the wget command does work when run standalone. The "authentication error" message only shows when gmail sends an authentication error. Please make sure that there are no spaces with the double quotes, but I don;t think that's the problem. I could make a version with additional debug info. Are you willing to try that for me? This would mean that you would have to run the theme in a terminal.

Thanks in advance, Nebula - Jun 15 2007

If you filled in your username and password correctly (remember the double quotes around both words!) then it should work correctly. Could run perhaps run the following command in a terminal:

wget -O -

(where gUser is your username and gPassword your password) and posts the results back? Maybe there's somehting wrong in my script. Thanks!

The spam folder is not available through gmails ATOM feed as far as I know. If anyone knows how to do this, they're welcome to share ;-).

Multiple accounts certainly is a possibility maybe I'll implement it later, it'll go on my TODO list!

I also saw a drop in my score, now that's OK but I'd like to know why people think my theme is bad? Drop me a line and maybe I can improve it! - Jun 06 2007

Not really, the theme does use some arguments with the wget command.

wget -O -

where gUser is your gmail username and gPassword your gmail password.
Still I'd like to see some terminal output, for I don't know what the problem is with the theme? What distro's are you using? On kubuntu it works perfectly!

I seems that the theme borks whenever wget fails. Try the 'wget' command in a command prompt and post the results please? I am working on a fix for this, I'll post an update when it works better.

Thanks for the feedback! - May 26 2007

I think that's because the background of your browser is white. Since the image is (partly) transparent, it mixes the black of the image with the white of your browser. Resulting into .. right: gray ;-)

Nice background by the way! Matches nicely with my other karambas! - May 09 2007

Nice RSS reader! Blends in nicely with the rest of my desktop. The fact that I can actually define my own RSS feeds is great! However when I add the following RSS feed

It does not appear in the RSS screen? I get tracebacks like:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/", line 44, in apport_excepthook
binary = os.path.realpath(os.path.join(os.getcwdu(), sys.argv[0]))
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'argv'

Original exception was:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 176, in initWidget
if feed.pubdates[latest_item] != 0:
IndexError: list index out of range

Do you know what's wrong?
Thanks in advance, Nebula - May 08 2007
