I haven't tried installing screenlets yet... BUT...
If you installed the gnome-python-desktop and gconf AFTER you compiled screenlets, then that's probably your problem. Recompile screenlets and check the output of ./configure --help to see if there is an option to enable gconf.
Additionally, make sure the 'gconf' python module is installed with gnome-python-desktop by viewing the /var/log/packages/gnome-python-desktop-* file.
So I removed both packets via pkgtool and installed first GConf and then gnome-python-desktop like you said, but I still get the same error message :/
The python bindings for GConf are NOT in gnome-python-desktop. The bindings are in gnome-python. gnome-python uses waf and it just picks up my GConf automatically. All of these are from slackbuilds.org.
I wrote a SlackBuild script for screenlets. Please note. This is the frame work only. I now need to make one for the "individual screenlets" which is a big package of generally accepted base widgets... I may just include it under the main package since it's useless without any widgets. Either way, it will be submitted to SlackBuilds once it's fully done.
Here is a more complete script to package the default set of screenlets. Note, some screenlets require other programs or python modules. Run screenlets from a terminal window to see the output of any screenlet that will not launch.
Unfortunately, Slackbuilds submission is closed right now. Wait till 13.37
