gDesktop: can't import bonobo.ui

To my knowledge, this question has been asked at least once. I have tried the different recommended solutions without success.

I am running slackware 9.1, xfree86 4.30 and openbox as wm.

I have installed libbonobo, libbonoboui, gtop,gconf, and the required gnome packages.

When trying to run gdesklets I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gdesklets", line 12, in ?
    from main.Starter import Starter
  File "/usr/share/gdesklets/main/", line 2, in ?
    from factory.DisplayFactory import DisplayFactory
  File "/usr/share/gdesklets/factory/", line 3, in ?
    from sensor.DefaultSensor import DefaultSensor
  File "/usr/share/gdesklets/sensor/", line 1, in ?
    from Sensor import Sensor
  File "/usr/share/gdesklets/sensor/", line 15, in ?
    from SensorConfigurator import SensorConfigurator
  File "/usr/share/gdesklets/sensor/", line 1, in ?
    import gnome.ui
ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui
And this is about as far as i get.. If anyone knows the solution to this problem, I would really appreciate some help..

Thanks in advance

Try the gDesklets FAQ :

More specifically here :

Which will lead you to here :

This was the problem I had on my install, the path to the libraries was not set up properly.

Hope it helps.
