Description Justin Dick 2006-10-28 22:25:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Running gdesklets as installed results in a working gdesklets app but 0 desklets
found.  A comparison to a different distro (Ubuntu 6.06) found that the entire
/usr/share/gdesklets directory that contains all the desklets is missing
(although the /usr/lib64/gdesklets application directory is fine).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is gDesklets, version 0.35.3.

How reproducible:
Install package, run gdesklets.

Actual results: 0 desklets found
Expected results: populated list of desklets

Additional info:
Copying populated /usr/share/gdesklets directory from other distribution (Ubuntu
6.06) worked OK - gdesklets detected and ran the copied desklets fine.
Comment 1 Luya Tshimbalanga 2006-10-29 03:02:03 EST
 It is more like a request for enhancement to provide a package that include a
set of desklets for the application as upstream version of gdesklets itself does
not include them. The description you mentionned is a normal behavior. However,
I look forward to develop that kind of package that may be called
gdesklets-addons. Stay tuned, I will close that bug once that kind of package
will be available.
