Gdesklets


Has anyone been successful installing gdesklets regarding Fedora 4? I tried installing it regarding my last install but failed. Forget the error but getting ready to try again.

If so how is the mem and cpu usage?

ok, I got it working.
I had some dependancy issues I had to hash out but other than that it compile easily...

Some of the desklets act a little strange but the ones that I like work fine.

oh, by the way, I'm on fc4-x64

thanks

- Jay

edit: the cpu usage isnt too bad (~5%) on a 3400+ stepped down to 800mhz
the mem usage seems to be around 15Mb... (not too bad if your running a gig+ )

edit edit: the cpu and mem usage can change significantly depending on which desklets I seem to run

gDesklets is available in the "extras" repository via yum. As root, run:

yum install gdesklets

then go to their website to get the desklets you want.

however

However, now I'm having trouble installing the desklets. There was a site I used when I had it on fc3 but don't remember the name, anyway, i get install failed: no install files, and there was another.. don't know what's up. the old site I just dragged the desklet from Firefox to the GD Shell and it would automatically install. Any suggestions?
