Description:

A small and simple gDesklet I wrote. Thought I would share it, maybe someone will like it. It's basically a picture of Tux that sits on your desktop (and blinks occasionally). If you click on him, he says something interesting (?). You will need to have fortune installed for it to work (but that should normally be no problem).

Please let me know if it works.

Thanks to Horgrathi for his inkscape tutorial on DeviantArt.

0.2: It is now possible to change the orientation of the bubble, as well as the command to generate the fortune. I also made the display a little smaller.

ghostdancer: That's strange, sounds like you're having problems with the IExec control. If you open the gDesklets shell click on controls and find IExec, what does it say? It should be "Exec IExec:8es4mvgrwsac7mp9lexx82qs9-2"

motyR: Not at the moment, but I might add that.

garoth: It's pretty easy to change, just replace the tux.png file in the gfx directory.

There is no IExec found. Is there a dependency I need to install?

My guess would be that you are running an old version of gDesklets. But then, this was just something I made to learn how to make desklets, so I'm really no expert.

is there a way to make it load the bubble
automaticlly at some interval, without the need to press it?

Cool one though :)

It's cool, but I think you could find/make a better tux picture.

Love it! Only thing i can think of is adding a config to change the orientation of the bubble, and the bgcolor.

Thanks!

Glad you like it! Those are good points, especially about being able to change the orientation. I'll look into it.
