Quick question about Gdesklet


I saw some screenshots and i'm very impressed, however, i'm wondering if Gdesklets is for the Gnome or KDE desktop, or if it's an environement of it's own, also , how easy is it to install?

gDesklets is for gnome and is software from the gnome foundation. I don't know about compatability with kde but I run it fine on my fluxbox desktop and it should run fine on blackbox etc, whatever window managers have gnome compatability. Fluxbox is awesome, supports gnome and kde

In GDesklets, the G means GTK, or Gnome. If you're looking for one for KDE, try SuperKaramba. In my experience, GDesklets was a real pain to install.

I use Gentoo and when I emerged gDesklets I got a bunch of errors which I tried to load a display and all sorts. emerge -C and then I compiled from source and it works great now

Never used Superkaramba but it looks pretty cool.

Superkaramba does look interesting. As stated, GDesklets is for GNOME. I've used it in several distros without a problem.

Thanks

Thanks, I was using Superkaramba and i've come about another question, whenever I have a theme loaded (sidebar, or any superk theme) when I go to open Firefox or konqourer, the theme will be infront of my internet browser, or window browser, is there anyway to set it so the theme stays in the back always?

That should be fixed in the 0.35 release. Please install that version.
