gDesklet


I now have gDesklets running properly on my desktop. I have some default desklets running. When I download a package, I've been told to drag and drop it into the gDesklets Shell. Well, what do I drag and drop? Everything I try to drag and drop has a circle with a line through it and won't let me put it in there. I assume I drag it to the wjite space to the right of all of the options, but either way, if I try to theleft it won't work. I'm having a really hard time, some one help me.

Don't drag it. Instead use the "install" in the menu to select the desklet you want to install (the tar.gz or tar.bz2 you have downloaded). Then select the desklet and hit the menu to select run. Quite easy

So don't extract it. Leave it as a tar.gz?

Yes, just leave it compressed and select it with the install desklet option. It will install, then you can run it.

Well, hopefully there is a "Print Screen" button on your keyboard (if you have a standard 108 key type). It is usually the button at the top, to the right of the "F12" key.

Yes, I do, but when I hit shift+print screen and try to paste it into the paint program, it pastes the last text that I copied.

Your window manager should have an option to capture the whole screen.
