gdesklet errors


Recently switched to FC3 from Suse 9.1 Pro -- with hopes and aspirations of one day creating my very own desktop :-D... we had a really rocky relationship Suse and I did...

Anywho, just installed GDesklets today, using this web site and it's references for sensors and displays: http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/arc...p/t-26681.html

I can get the first two displays to run, "GMAIL" and "SysInfo" but "GoodWeather" will not run.
It comes up with an error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/factory/DisplayFactory.py", line 93, in create_display
dsp.new_child(childtype, settings, children)
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/display/Display.py", line 201, in new_child
self.__group.new_child(t, s, c)
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/display/TargetGroup.py", line 67, in new_child
child = ContainerTarget.new_child(self, childtype, settings, children)
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/display/ContainerTarget.py", line 75, in new_child
child = targetregistry.create(childtype, self)
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/display/targetregistry.py", line 58, in create
raise KeyError("Unknown target type \"%s\"." % name)
KeyError: u'Unknown target type "metha".'

I found this odd, and then realized that the first two files that I downloaded, installed, and ran were tar.bz's -- whereas GoodWeather (and a whole slew of others that are also erroring) are tar.bz2's and tar.gz's. The other common error I get from these is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/factory/SensorFactory.py", line 83, in create_sensor
sensor = module.new_sensor(args)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'new_sensor'

I get this more often than the former. The tar.bz's have yet to error, but there are so few out there that I haven't enough evidence--but thus far they all (five that I've tried) worked.

Any idea what's going on with this? I thought I had all the necessary libs and dependencies I needed.

PS-- I have tried to save the other files (bz2's and gz's) as .bz's-- either through "Save As" while downloading or in "Ark" . I have also tried unzipping them and re-saving them as .bz's.

It will still error with the same message.
