Comment 1 Luya Tshimbalanga 2008-07-20 09:24:43 UTC
A known issue from upstream https://bugs.launchpad.net/gdesklets/+bug/184678
Unfortunately I was unable to reproduce the problem with x86_64 architecture. 
According to upstream, it is python related and here is a workaround:

Version 0.36.2 will be out soon so you will get a chance to try out.

Comment 2 Anis Muslic 2008-07-20 13:18:02 UTC
Thanks alot, and i will try the workaround.

Comment 3 Kevin DeKorte 2008-10-28 17:05:44 UTC
I tried the workaround and the latest packages in F9 is gdesklets-0.36-1.fc9.x86_64


Any update on this?

Comment 4 Luya Tshimbalanga 2008-10-28 17:35:04 UTC
Hmmm, I found out upstream has gdesklets-0.36.1 but it was not announced on front page because it is a test. I am going to update this package.

Did it work? 

> Any update on this?
 According to their mail list, 0.36.1 is not released yet due to massive rebuilt they are doing. I am unable to reproduce this bug.

Comment 6 Kevin DeKorte 2008-10-28 20:12:28 UTC
No it did not work, even with the workaround.
