gDesklets error


I have installed gDesklets from the urpmi and I have installed multiple displays for it.

whenever I attempt to run any of the displays I receive an error: "Error loading target html"

I have verified I have gdesklets running when the command was entered:
ryedunn 4741 1 0 23:33 ? 00:00:00 python /usr/bin/gdesklets

[ryedunn@empiricus ryedunn]# gdesklets /usr/share/gdesklets/Displays/weather/weather.display
Error loading target html

(gDesklets:4870): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
gDesklets 0.26.1

Hi ryedunn,

Just a thought, are you actually running Gnome successfully?

Did you get any kind of error when you started gDesklets originally?

gnome is running very well, no errors on the inital startup of gdesklets....

as a matter of fact the only error I have seen in gnome is on boot is says it cant pull an ip address.. but I really doubt that has anything to do with it.

I also posted this in the gnome support forum and the guru wrote:
"What you need is the package gnome-python2-gtkhtml2.
But it should also work without this. Only desklets which display HTML (none?) would refuse to work"

Basically saying it should work, sorry it doesnt. Im still taking his advice and trying to install gnome-python2-gtkhtml2 although neither use html. I will let you know how it goes.

I looked in urpmq and although I didnt see gnome-pyhton2-gtkhtml2 but I did see that gnome-python-gtkhtml2 was not installed so I did install that...
and it looks like its running fine now.
