Well guys, let me give you a tip from my recent experience with gdesklets.
Backtrack and reinstall all the depencies for gdesklets, including gnome-python and pygtk and everything. EXCEPT, this time when you go to do this
add this to it
this will install all these programs where they can find each other, and it will work WAY more smoothly, trust me, it worked for me, and it will most likely work for you.
