adesklets: problem w/ the desklets

I have adesklets installed correctly (installed from apt-get) but can't run the python desklets. I have the same error when I try to run any desklet.
Sorry my speling. English isnt my native lang.

arthur@aex:~/.desklets/yab-0.0.2$ ./ 
Do you want to (r)egister this desklet or to (t)est it? r

I'm using debian sarge, upgraded to etch... all libs seems to be ok.

Some desklets I had to go in and rewrite a couple of times. It could just be the desklet.

I have the same error when I try to load any desklet (python based). E.g.: yab (toolbar).

I already upgraded python to 2.5 and installed the dev package.
