Hi jfernandz, for the first part you should ask the author, I'm only the maintainer of this package. For the icon part I will take a look asap. Thanks for reporting.

jfernandz commented on 2022-02-20 12:39 (UTC)

I'm curious about why the source code of viagee is more outdated than the gnome-gmail source code, aside from this point ... I'm not sure but ... what about keep using Icon=gnome-gmail in the viagee.desktop file? this should be a simple patch and I've did this manually and works perfectly to keep showing the gnome-gmail icon for viagee.

@bulletmark yes it should!

bulletmark commented on 2021-05-18 05:45 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD should have a replaces=('gnome-gmail').

Hi, max.bra. I accepted your request to merge viagee into gnome-gmail but now I see that it was supposed to be the other way round. I'm going to resubmit your viagee package and then merge gnome-gmail into viagee.

max.bra commented on 2021-04-19 14:55 (UTC)

oh!! when i saw the HP (couple of days ago) that notice wasn't there... or maybe i was sleepy...

@max.bra: He mentions why right on the homepage:


As a part of a recent audit by Google, the branding for GNOME Gmail was changed.

yes i know, thank you. i want to see people comments and developer next move. gnome-gmail is still there and i don't have yet understand the meaning of viagee move.

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-04-19 14:33 (UTC)

Probably ought to create a new viagee package and merge this one into it.

max.bra commented on 2019-10-23 05:42 (UTC)

hi yochananmarqos, done w/o release bump. thanks for reporting.

max.bra commented on 2017-10-19 07:04 (UTC)

ok, very well. still seems to be a mistery:

commented on 2017-10-19 06:59 (UTC)

@max.bra yes. makepkg worked.

max.bra commented on 2017-10-19 06:50 (UTC)

hey marioaria, just installed from aur via yaourt here, all seems normal. are you using pacaur? can you download the snapshot and makepkg on it?

commented on 2017-10-19 06:40 (UTC)

Hi again, is this me or the package? :: Installing gnome-gmail package(s)... :: gnome-gmail package(s) failed to install. :: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD :: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

max.bra commented on 2017-10-18 12:11 (UTC)

:D no problem, thanks for reporting, updating deps.

commented on 2017-10-18 12:09 (UTC)

@max.bra I'm such a noob :D Thanks!

max.bra commented on 2017-10-18 12:05 (UTC)

Hi marioaria, can you please install xdg-utils?

commented on 2017-10-18 11:58 (UTC)

Hi! I get this error when trying to launch gnome-gmail: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'xdg-settings'

max.bra commented on 2016-11-19 21:11 (UTC)

hi trojkat, patch is assumed to be installed.

trojkat commented on 2016-11-19 20:14 (UTC)

Please add "patch" to dependencies.

j1simon commented on 2016-08-06 10:40 (UTC)

It works well.

max.bra commented on 2016-08-06 08:27 (UTC)

@j1simon please, can you use this ( and tell me if something is wrong?

max.bra commented on 2016-08-05 07:07 (UTC)

I did the opposite: switched to spanish locale and boom! indeed, simonbcn too use en_ES.UTF-8 this evening i will see if we can patch the issue.

max.bra commented on 2016-08-04 21:38 (UTC)

!?!? if you default your locale to en_US.UTF-8 and reboot, somethings change?

j1simon commented on 2016-08-04 17:19 (UTC)

Yes, it fails too with urxvt.

max.bra commented on 2016-08-04 07:42 (UTC)

since is all working here: please, can you try with rxvt-unicode?

j1simon commented on 2016-08-03 19:46 (UTC)

I've tried with Terminator, Terminix and tty console. It fails always.

max.bra commented on 2016-08-03 18:12 (UTC)

> It only fails when I execute it from console. Oh!! Interesting. your terminal?

j1simon commented on 2016-08-03 17:07 (UTC)

$ cat /etc/locale.conf LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE=C Every link I try to open fails, for example: gnome-gmail It only fails when I execute it from console.

max.bra commented on 2016-08-03 08:04 (UTC) (edited on 2016-08-03 08:05 (UTC) by max.bra)

your /etc/locale.conf? can you post the link that generate your error?

j1simon commented on 2016-08-02 11:03 (UTC)

@max.bra $ grep "^[^#]" /etc/locale.gen es_ES.UTF-8 UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 en_US ISO-8859-1 es_ES ISO-8859-1 es_ES@euro ISO-8859-15

max.bra commented on 2016-08-01 21:18 (UTC)

hi j1simon, gnome-gmail has been recently and officialy ported to python 3, and it's working here. can you please copy-paste result of this: grep "^[^#]" /etc/locale.gen

j1simon commented on 2016-08-01 16:15 (UTC) (edited on 2016-08-01 16:16 (UTC) by j1simon)

It fails with python3: $ gnome-gmail Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/gnome-gmail/", line 852, in <module> main() File "/usr/share/gnome-gmail/", line 837, in main gmailurl = gm_url.gmail_url() File "/usr/share/gnome-gmail/", line 563, in gmail_url gmailurl = self.api_gmail_url() File "/usr/share/gnome-gmail/", line 530, in api_gmail_url gm_api.form_message() File "/usr/share/gnome-gmail/", line 341, in form_message self.message_text = msg.as_bytes() File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 179, in as_bytes g.flatten(self, unixfrom=unixfrom) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 115, in flatten self._write(msg) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 181, in _write self._dispatch(msg) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 214, in _dispatch meth(msg) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 288, in _handle_multipart self._write_lines(preamble) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 161, in _write_lines self.write(laststripped) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/email/", line 410, in write self._fp.write(s.encode('ascii', 'surrogateescape')) UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\xed' in position 18: ordinal not in range(128) If I change the launcher to: python2 /usr/share/gnome-gmail/ "$@" it works well.

max.bra commented on 2012-02-14 19:19 (UTC)

done. thanks for advice.

commented on 2012-02-14 17:25 (UTC)

gnome-python-desktop brings in a lot of unnecessary dependencies. Installing python2-gconf, python2-gobject2, python-gnomekeyring and dbus-python are sufficient.

max.bra commented on 2011-11-21 09:37 (UTC)

where and when do you get that error?

xyproto commented on 2011-11-21 09:30 (UTC)

I get: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files Is there a dependency I need to install (or run) to make it work? Thanks.

max.bra commented on 2011-05-20 06:38 (UTC)

gnome 3 update

max.bra commented on 2010-12-08 15:01 (UTC)

yes, you are right! updated.

commented on 2010-12-08 12:12 (UTC)

I think it's missing a build dependence on intltool...

Liquen commented on 2010-10-22 20:54 (UTC)

Go for it, mate!

max.bra commented on 2010-10-22 19:22 (UTC)

if you want i can adopt it. i've a pkgbuild ready for version 1.7

Liquen commented on 2010-10-19 18:19 (UTC)

Upgraded after Python 2 vs 3 stuff.

Liquen commented on 2010-04-19 19:36 (UTC)

I get it. A simple "make prefix=$pkgdir install" does the job. I readopted it.

Liquen commented on 2010-04-07 13:14 (UTC)

I can't mantain this package anymore. Could someone adopt it? By the way, version 1.5.1 is out.
