development:     http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/debian/pool/contrib/g/gmailbashchecker-0.2.tar.gz

last version:    http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/debian/pool/contrib/g/



___________________________________________________________
Features:
    - Bash checking of the gmail accounts
    - Use the gpg encryption :) Cool no
    - Check the processes, and let only one gmailbashchecker running
    - Plays KDE sounds if an email has been received
    - A file in /tmp/ is created as log and permits other users to see that email is received (this is very important for my box because I run mythtv and this pc is shared. Also the other users can use the crontab -e )
    
___________________________________________________________
Bugs / Uncomplete package:
    - Makes sound again when user check his emails :)
    - Sending a reply for email, doesnt make any sound because gmail uses labels
    - Looking forward for developpers and help (n00b level)
    - Creates ~/tmp/
    - Encryption and security can still be far improved
    - Debug and log can be added
    - A configuration file could be also added

___________________________________________________________
Requirements
    - KDE sounds to be installed
    - Bash (I am not sure that it works with Ubuntu because of a bug in the sh, still uncorrected for many years. )

___________________________________________________________
Optional:
    - A normal .festivalrc for Alsa:
/tmp/createthefestivalrc:
cat <<! >~/.festivalrc
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "aplay -q -c 1 -t raw -f s16 -r \$SR \$FILE")
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)
!
run: sh /tmp/createthefestivalrc
    - Debian Stable is adviced as always



___________________________________________________________
Use (example):

    first time:

        gmailbashchecker 60s
