Gdesklets - probably simple python issue


I am running Fedora 9. It has by default 2.5 python I think. I installed compat-python24 to add python2.4, because that is what gdesklets needs (at least, I thought!)

Then I went through each of gdesklets files and wrote in python2.4 instead of just python. I have confirmed I have in my /usr/bin a folder called python2.4.

So....what am I doing wrong? I get this error when running gdeskelets:

gdesklets
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/gdesklets", line 3, in ?
from main import client, DISPLAY, HOME, USERHOME
File "/usr/lib64/gdesklets/main/__init__.py", line 3, in ?
import utils
File "/usr/lib64/gdesklets/utils/__init__.py", line 3, in ?
import gtk
ImportError: No module named gtk

Can anyone help me? I just want gdesklets to work. I am not interested in screenlets or any other thing because I have favorite desklets I like.

Looks like python is trying to import a module for gtk (http://www.pygtk.org/, probably) and it can't find it. Try to install that first through your package manager and see if that helps. I would not be messing around with two different python environments if I were you. When something goes wrong you will need to track down the problem within two environments. But hey, that is just me =)
