Requires python-xlib package.

Does not work properly on Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) with ATI graphics. Probably due to lack of fglrx driver for X-server 1.6. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
Animated icons (e.g. when searching for a wireless network) may look odd. Increasing the refresh rate setting may help.
Some icons do not return after restarting the screenlet (e.g. nm-applet).
