    gdesklets


    i emerged gdesklets-core, at the end of the compilattion it says
    Code:
    * gDesklets Displays are required before the library
     * will be usable. The displays are found in -
     *            x11-plugins/desklet-*
     * or at http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org
    
     * Next you'll need to start gdesklets using
     *            /usr/bin/gdesklets start
     * If you're using GNOME this can be done conveniently
     * through Applications->Accessories->gDesklets
    where would i find x11-plugins/desklet-*?

    If it is a dependency issue, just emerge the package (first search for it of course). But there is something going wrong when the python script is run. That's for sure.

    Have you installed gdesklets display? The message mentions it's required.

    looking in /usr/partage/x11-plugins/ I find gDesklets Displays:
    Code:
    ls /usr/portage/x11-plugins/ | grep desklet-*
    desklet-clock
    desklet-discreetclock
    desklet-ftb
    desklet-hypertail
    desklet-justanicon
    desklet-newsgrab
    desklet-regexp
    desklet-rssgrab
    desklet-rsstickerbar
    desklet-scweather
    desklet-sidecandy
    desklet-sidecandygmail
    desklet-sidecandyrhythmbox
    desklet-starterbar
    desklet-wirelessmonitor
    so
    Code:
    emerge one_of_the_above
    and see it it works (you may have to unmask them if they are masked).
