hi, when I try to run the orb screenlet (http://www.screenlets.org/index.php/Orb#) I get an error:

Launching Screenlet from: /home/linus-gates/.screenlets/orb/orbScreenlet.py
Logging output goes to: $HOME/.config/Screenlets/orbScreenlet.log
FATAL ERROR: This screenlet seems to be written for an older version of the framework. Please download a newer version of the orbScreenlet.

I am running screenlets on Uuntu Intrepid... help me!

Dear Helder Fraga,

When I am trying to install a new screenlet in the Universal Applet Manager it doesn't work.

When I click on install, choose install screenlet, browse to the downloaded screenlet .tar.gz archive and select and open it, the process seems to stall.

The following output is being send to the .xsession.errors log:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/universal-applets-manager", line 392, in <lambda>
lambda w: self.show_install_chose_ui())
File "/usr/bin/universal-applets-manager", line 778, in show_install_chose_ui
self.show_install_dialog()
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/screenlets/manager.py", line 307, in show_install_dialog
return self.install_screenlet (filename)
File "/usr/bin/universal-applets-manager", line 558, in install_screenlet
if ScreenletsController.install_screenlet(self, filename):
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/screenlets/manager.py", line 218, in install_screenlet
result = installer.install(filename)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/screenlets/manager.py", line 113, in install

os.system('tar %s "%s" -C %s' % (tar_opts, filename, tmpdir))
NameError: global name 'tmpdir' is not defined



I am using Fedora 10.

The following screenlet packages are installed:

universal-applets-0.1.2~bzr623-2.1.i386
universal-applets-extras-0.1~bzr165-1.1.i386


I hope this can be solved.


With kind regards,


Eddie

Erm, I think you'll find that Screenlets and Universal-Applets were/are two separate projects.

Perhaps you would be better directing your question to one of the UA developers, rather than Whise ;-)

I really like screenlets, but i am still using metacity without composite.

so as for now i am stuck with either gdesklets, which are not as good as screenlets but have pseudo transparency, or screenlets with really ugly borders.

will there ever be better support for non-composite environments?

"Error: A later version is already installed".

Why?

Couldn't say for sure, but if you're running Ubuntu it could be that you have the version from backports, which is surprisingly actually 0.1.2. First time I've seen up-to-date software actually come from Ubuntu rather than one of the 10+ PPAs I've got listed so far...

Is it just me, or this new version of NowPlaying screenlet in this version not working with amarok (under Hardy)?

Can't get it to work...

Another awesome release of Screenlets! You've done a great deal of admirable work on Screenlets. The project has come a long way. I'd hate to see you leave, Screenlets is one amazing project, and as of now there's really nothing else like it. I hope that you may reconsider because Screenlets are too awesome to let die. Thanks for the work you've done on the project. :)

Hi! First of all, thanks! I've installed the new version, but I find the wallpaper clock still doesn't autostart on startup. I have to go into the Screenlets Manager and restart all screenlets for it to start. I have the Start/Stop and Auto start on login both checked. Also, if I go into my Sessions Preferences, it shows up under the Additional startup programs but not under my Current Session. Any ideas? Is is just me? Thanks for your time.

Just wanted to give a big thanks for all the outstanding work you've done on this project. You've helped take Screenlets from being the little widget platform that might to what is, in my opinion, the best widget platform around hands down. Sucks to see you go, but best of luck to you on any future endeavors. I'll keep an eye out for your next project.

It's always great to know that a new version of screenlets is out and that this project is getting better all the time :)

you've been doing a great work maintaining and improving screenlets.

I hope one day this project gets officially integrated into Gnome.

But it's sad and really bad that you are thinking of abandoning screenlets development :(
