Moon Phase im Mandrake 8.1


Hello,

I put Mandrake 8.1 on a box here at work (the first crack in the MS wall). I noticed on my installation at home, it showed the current phase of the moon in the taskbar of the KDE desktop. This is important to me, because the only other way to check on the moon phase is to look outside using WINDOWS!

If, (in spite of that feeble joke), you could help me out on this relatively unimportant point, I would be obliged, will chip in my $35.00 as a contributing member.

If not, right click on the kde taskbar (kicker) and choose add+applet+moonphase

I am doing it from memory, let's hope memory serves me well (which it hardly ever does, so good luck).

Memory sucks! I came home to check if you can do it either way, and although you can, it's by going to button and then just like frocco said.

Good job frocco, bad job dumb ass me

SUCCESS!!
Thanks frocco and MasterC, I now have a moon phase. Going to button was the part I was missing, so I take away the bad job and award you the Golden Penguin of Merit. People like you to helping out do more for OS choice than any lawsuit against M$.
