tar.gz of a gnome-panel more stable for debian stable :lol


Hello,

Gnome-panel as everyone know is absolutely not stable. I cannot get my weather stable more than 2-7 days. lol Sometimes applets crashes or disappear forever (unless rm).

Bored of rm -rf .gconfd every single few days ...

Can we have something that simply work for Debian stable ?

Why this gnome-panel is in Stable since it is buggy as crap ??
I am wondering. It never worked for me since years.

I never had such a problem (using Etch since testing).
Are you sure it's not just the server from your weather provider screwing up that applet?
Applets can/will/should disappear when the underlying process stops...

Installing GNOME from source is really not a fun thing to do and mixing Debian with non-debian GNOME parts is asking for trouble.

PS: If you need a really stable desk, try Fluxbox.
Since you already have GNOME, you can use its gnome-settings-daemon and have all essential GNOME candy (and applications) in Flux

well i have fluxbox or openbox, and need a panel that has a nice weather applet and window manager like in windows microsoft.

hence only gnome-panel is cool, for that , looks and works like windows.

my problem with kicker is that all workspaces are listed in the task bar ...

I know this isn't addressing your main issue, but try forecast fox for firefox instead of gnome weather applet:
