gDesklets

Recommended Posts

Guest Tux234

Ok, i will totally switch to gnome if I can gdesklets to work. When I try to install it it says that it needs gdesklets-display. Shouldn't that be in the source file already? And if possible is there a link to a RPM that anybody knows of?

Funny, I came to software to post a question about gdesklets and BOOM it's here tonight. :D

 

Instead of makeing another thread I will stay here.

 

 

My question is when I have them installed, ALL the "themes" open up in one place and I don't seem to be able to move them. I'm wondering if I should just edit the <name>.display file or is there some other trick?

 

Tyme, I know you have used them before, what's the scoop?

Ok, I searched their page and the gnomesupport forums and I can't find an answer to this so I'll ask here. When I try to start gdesklets, I get the following error:

Error loading target html

init class factory.DisplayFactory.DisplayFactory

init class factory.SensorFactory.SensorFactory

init class config.ConfigManager.ConfigManager

Traceback (most recent call last):

 File "/usr/local/bin/gdesklets", line 25, in ?

   starter.start_displays()

 File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/main/Starter.py", line 180, in start_displays

   self.__on_watch(None, displays)

 File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/main/Starter.py", line 78, in __on_watch

   self.__update_display_set(value)

 File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/main/Starter.py", line 94, in __update_display_set

   dsp = self.__create_display(id, path)

 File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/main/Starter.py", line 120, in __create_display

   data = fd.read()

IOError: [Errno 21] Is a directory

 

I saw someone who said that this can be cleared up by using a login manager (KDM, GDM, XDM) but I use fluxbox and I don't know how to start it from there, plus I really don't want graphical login if I can avoid it. Anyone have any ideas? I've tried everything I can think of including looking at the source code for clues, but I can't find anything.

Ok, I got this fixed so I will share how I did it. Open a terminal and run gconf-editor

 

Go to apps -> gDesklets -> Main and edit the default key

 

Scroll through and make sure everything is pointing to a .display file and not a folder. The keys each start with a number and end with a comma. Make sure if you have to delete something to delete the whole key.

 

Alternately, you could delete all the entries in the default key and start over.

 

Hope this helps someone.

i've downloaded some displays but it still says that i need gdesklets-display :banghead:

 

Let's start from scratch, when you say in your first post from the "source" did you use:

 

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.p...=mandrake&arch=

 

This src.rpm?

 

 #rpmbuild --rebuild gdesklets-0.21.1-1mdk.src.rpm

# rpm -ivh /path/to/rpm/<filename>

 

http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/cooker/contr...1-1mdk.src.html

 

Then download the gdesklets-display's from:

 

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.p...=mandrake&arch=

 

#rpm -ivh <filename>

 

Did you do all that :?:

Check out the link I previously posted.

 

http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/cooker/contr...1-1mdk.src.html

 

scroll down

scroll down

STOP,

 

Requires

 

* pygtk2.0-devel

* gnome-python

* gtk2-devel

 

Now, click on it.

 

You could also try, I'm not in front of a mdk box right now, but try:

 

#urpmi gtk2-devel

 

& see what the output is.

 

:P
