    Hi,

    I have a problem logging into my account (username@googlemail.com) - Version 0.5.5 with KDE 3.5.0 under Gentoo - does not log in.

    Errormessage is:

    Unknown error while recieving cookies (free translation).
    What can I do?

    Cheers,
    Alcapond

     
    • You can launch it using a terminal (Konsole for example), and post the output here, without forgetting to delete sensitive informations from it (e-mails, password)

      Getting the same thing here:

      kcheckgmail: [void GMail::login()] Waiting for wallet...
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()]
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()] from kconfig
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::getKConfig()]
      kcheckgmail: Sending login: Email=&Passwd=*******&null=Sign%20in
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()] return true
      kcheckgmail: [void GMail::slotPostLoginResult(KIO::Job*)] Finally, Cookie: GoogleAccountsLocale_session=en
      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::slotLoginDone(bool, bool, const QString&)]
      kcheckgmail: ok=false evtFromTimer=true why=Unknown error retrieving cookies
      kcheckgmail:
      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::updateCountImage()] Count=0

      As you can see, it's not sending my email address, but it is set.  Closing the app and restarting it worked, this time, but hadn't in the past.

      I get an unknown error retrieving cookies, and the g icon is flashing in red, but I don't know how can I get this debugging output. I've tried kcheckgmail --nofork but it still doesn't output anything in the console.

      I was using kcheckgmail on suse 9.1 pro. After working fine, it just stopped working and would not login properly and not recognise when there was new mail. I noticed that this happened right around the time when the gmail login screen featured a verification check where you need to enter the the distorted-looking text (presumably to stop bots). So maybe this could be reason. I have since installed Suse 10.1 and kcheckgmail gives me the same errors about cookies.

      I am with the same problem:

      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::updateCountImage()] Count=0
      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::slotLoginStart()]
      kcheckgmail: [void GMail::login()] Waiting for wallet...
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()]
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()] from kconfig
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::getKConfig()]
      kcheckgmail: Sending login: Email=mylogin@gmail.com&Passwd=???????????&null=Sign%20in
      kcheckgmail: [bool GMailWalletManager::get()] return true
      kcheckgmail: [void GMail::slotPostLoginResult(KIO::Job*)] Finally, Cookie: GoogleAccountsLocale_session=es
      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::slotLoginDone(bool, bool, const QString&)]
      kcheckgmail: ok=false evtFromTimer=true why=Unknown error retrieving cookies
      kcheckgmail:
      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::updateCountImage()] Count=0

      i only change mu real login to mylogin. but the "???????????" in my password disconcert me. This is only shown when i have a password, because if i delete it from de rc file, and then y change the password in the config window, i get:

      kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::slotSettingsChanged()] passwd unchanged: mygmailpassword

      and the password is not changed. And if I change again my pass, then the line shown is kcheckgmail: [void KCheckGmailTray::slotSettingsChanged()] passwd unchanged: mygmailpasswordmygmailpassword

      supossed "mygmailpassword" is my pass
