I don't know if I installed this wrong but I used YUM to install gDesklets and all dependancies. It seemed to have finished the install fine.
Now when I go to "Redhat Icon" > Accesories , I see the option to run gDesklets with the puzzle background icon. I select it and it opens a small tab on my tool bar like it's trying to open and have an hour class for a pointer. After 15-20 seconds, the action just disappears... :oops:
I have no idea why? I did not get any errors while installing and I get no errors while trying to run the app but nothing happens. I assume I should get some window or toolbar to interact with.
If I open a terminal window and type
That is all I get. Nothing ever happens and I end up stopping the command.

You have to run gdesklets with a display command. For me everything is stored in /usr/share/gdesklets, so for me I run something like the following:
you say that everything is stored in that location but what do you mean, everything?
I thought this was an application?
I just want to install this tool bar I downloaded called starterbar-desklet-0.30.tar.bz2
All I have done so far is use YUM to install gDesklets and that is it.
I really am not to clear as to where YUM manually installed the application "gDesklets" and if I need to send all my visual stuff to a folder there.
What do you recommend I do?
You have to extract/install the starterbar desklet. gDesklets is basically a backend for you to load desklets with. It's a modular type program.
