Unhappy Installation of "Gdesklets" on "Breezy" 5.10

Hi guys,

I just installed "Breezy" on the last weekend and also tried to install "gdesklets".

After I did "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade" and using the command

"apt-get install gdesklets gdesklets-data", Breezy showed me an error message saying something like "package not found"

Could anyone suggest me how to install gdesklets on Breezy please

Thanks a lot,

Have you done an "apt-cache search gdesklets" and see whether both of those packages are listed. I think it's just the one, gdesklets-data off the top of my head that's needed, and apt handles the other dependencies for you.

First you need to add the 'universe' repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list. Read for a Howto.

sudo apt-get update
after that you will be able to:

sudo apt-get install gdesklets
Do not install the gdesklets-data packages as it is outdated and not working properly. Download the desklets you want from
