GMail Docklet reports Network Error a lot

Asked by Stephen Judge on 2010-06-13

The GMail Docklet seems to grey out and report Network Error a lot. It almost appears its login is timing out and tries to log back in. When it does report a Network Error I ignore it and it seems to fix itself after a while but it is quit annoying to have to manually doing a Check Mail to get the connection back. In general my internet connection is fine so I am not sure what is causing this Network Error.

Is anybody else experiencing the same problem?

Make sure you are running Docky 2.0.4 or the PPA version/bzr trunk.

Stephen Judge (stephenjudge) said : #2

Can you point me in the direction or tell me how I can add the PPA for Docky. I installed it from the Ubuntu Software Centre and I expected updates to come from there.

Robert Dyer (psybers) said : #3

2.0.2 is in the main repository.

You can get 2.0.4 from the lucid proposed repository.
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed

You can add our PPA to get the stable or development version (updated almost daily).

Hey Robert,

I am now running Docky 2.0.4 bzr docky-2.0 r1306 pre-release, and the GMail Docklets are still reporting a Network Error a lot. Do you know of anyone else having the same problem.

I am still facing this problem with the latest Docky 2.0.6 bzr docky r1337 pre-release from the PPA installed. Is anyone facing the same problem.

Try the development PPA: https://launchpad.net/~docky-core/+archive/ppa

You can see this is 200 revisions newer.
