On Enlightenment, I did find another thread that should give you help.... after about three years of hard core bash instruction!
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/184631
Hokay, now let me check on Gnome - although I just switched my default over to KDE because the Gnome applets were a pain and the weather ones refused to cooperate at all. Which ones were you trying to install?

Hey Zoey, I just checked my /usr/lib file and I found that libImlib.so.11.0.0 is already installed. Check your files and that posting from Stormbringer about the symbolic link: ln -s ln -s /usr/local/lib/libImlib2.so.1 /usr/lib/libImlib2.so.1 - If you change the syntax to the corresponding files and directories, I think you'll be fine!

OK JustOl"Bob, how about translating that last post into "newbie speak"? I don't understand how to change the syntax.

What I am getting from enlightenment is that it needs fnlib, libFnlib.so.0 and liblmlib.so.1. I downloaded the fnlib rpm a couple of days ago, but it won't install because it needs liblmlib.so.1.

The applets that I am trying to install are bubblemon and the xpenguins control. The weather one works just fine so far.

Thanks much for all of the time you are giving my silly projects. I am learning from
your posts.

Yeah, 'syntax' was probably the wrong word. What I was trying to say was that Enlightenment isn't finding libImlib.so.1 because it's looking in the wrong directory. So, what the symbolic link is doing is putting a notation in the directory that Enlightenment checks that 'links' it back to the correct directory. You'd have to do it as 'su' and change the file name to the what your version reads.

I'll check out bubblemon, xpenguins and see what I can find

Okay, here's where YUM shines! I did a 'yum search xpenguins' and found it (Dag). Here's the response:

Available package: xpenguins-themes.i386 0:2.2-0.1.fc2.dag from dag matches with xpenguins-themes

So then, I did a Yum install like so:

[root@localhost bob]# yum install xpenguins-themes.i386
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 Dag Wieers' repository
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
.Dependencies resolved
I will do the following:
[install: xpenguins-themes 2.2-0.1.fc2.dag.i386]
I will install/upgrade these to satisfy the dependencies:
[deps: xpenguins 2.2-0.1.fc2.dag.i386]
Is this ok [y/N]:

Now, in my case, I said 'N' since I don't want peguins marching across my desktop, but you'd say 'y' and you're on your way!

I already have the little penguins that float around with ballons, etc and the only way that I have figured out to turn them off is to log out and back in again. The applet that I am trying to install is a switch of sorts that shows on the panel. It can be used to turn them off and on. It can be found here: http://xpenguins.seul.org/.

I did a Google search for Stormbringer symbolic link and it took me to a page on Linux hardware page #691. I couldn't understand very much of it, I'm afraid. I think that I need to study up on symbolic links and I also think that I am in way over my head. That seems to happen a lot with me and Linux, but that is ok, as I am enjoying the journey and learning a few things along the way.

Thanks, zoey

I probably should have been more clear about the xpenguins. They only run all over my desktop when I start them with run applications. They are not there all of the time.

I have researched various commands for turning them off, but so far nothing has worked except for logging out and back in.

Hmmm.... from that link you sent, version 2.2 seems to have a kill switch (squish) that operates with your mouse. Do yu have that version installed? If not, I'd remove the older one and replace it with 2.2 . As far as the rest is concerned, take your time, play with it and back up your files for the crashes. Meantime, I'd suggest going over to FedoraForum.org and posting there for that Enlightenment program if you are still having problems. Those guys can probably walk you through anything.

Just tried it myself on FC2.
I used Apt with the following respo's:
http://freshrpms.net/
http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/

No problem at all...
Did you do a "dist-upgrade"(or smart refresh in synaptic) before installing it?
Your 'so' files might be pointing at a wrong version.

Jens, could you please tell me the correct way to enter fresh rpms in the repository list in synaptic?

I have tried-- first line http://freshrpms.net/ [also http://tettnang.freshrpms.net/]

second line fedora/2/i386

third line os updates [also packages]

I am not getting the information typed in correctly because synaptic cannot make a connection for updates with fresh rpms.

I would appreciate it. Thank you, zoey

Do let me know if it worked for you.

I maintain all linux systems from a local university(Slack, Deb, Collage and RH/Fedora).
IMO the best way to update Fedora is using the Apt RPM from Fresh RPM's(this already includes it's full respo...)
Even tho it can give you some (small) problems combining it with Dag, I still recommend doing this (it solves more problems than it creates).

Unless yum becomes better(including SRPM's) I don't recommend using it.
