The only thing I would like this application to do is update the menu bar icon in the Google Notifier immediately when the Growl notification is clicked. Is that even possible, regarding access to Google Notifier's behavior?
Nice program otherwise, a quick warning regarding the logging situation -- if Growl is set to enable logging, the first few lines of messages are saved in the log file.
Works great for me!
I don't know what's with the bad reviews, it works fine for me.
Essential add-on for Gmail.
Awesome application, couldn't live without it or Gmail Notifier.
Beware! This utility hijacked my home folder upon installation. It renamed my home folder to 'Gmail+Growl'. When I next rebooted, I lost everything because my home folder was regenerated. I'm manually copying everything in the 'Gmail+Grow' folder into my (new) home folder as I type this.
This sounds absolutely absurd - at only one point in the installation process does the Gmail+Growl Utility ever create a folder, and at *no* point is it named Gmail Notifier.
I'm not saying that this couldn't ever possibly have happen and that this issue is made up, but what I am saying is that it sounds completely unreasonable for Gmail+Growl Utility to do something that it's never been programmed to do.
It would be nice if you'd send "Console" logs from the time when this happened - Gmail+Growl Utility posts info to the system log regardless of success or failure just for these kinds of things - and any other potentially helpful info to firstname.lastname@example.org so that this problem can be tracked down - and if it really is a problem, it desperately does need to be tracked down.
Mea cupla - I wrote "This sounds absolutely absurd - at only one point in the installation process does the Gmail+Growl Utility ever create a folder, and at *no* point is it named Gmail Notifier." but I meant "This sounds absolutely absurd - at only one point in the installation process does the Gmail+Growl Utility ever create a folder, and at *no* point is it named *something else than* Gmail Notifier."
Installed this and Gmail notifier quit working...uninstalled this and Notifier still won't work, neither will Growl!
This has been fixed now - it was a problem on Gmail's side with emitting the data that made Gmail Notifier and several other Gmail tools stay up to date. Install 1.7 and you should be fine.
Great plug-in!!! Now if we only had a notifier for Eudora!!!
