Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65557
old applets either gone or can not be added to panel
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
The new gnome-applets package either no longer contains very useful applets the
the drivespace meter or the cpu/mem meter (additionally 3rd party applets are no
longer displayed in the add to panel menu).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Inherent to the package.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to add an applet that was used before upgrade.
2. Applet is no longer available or does not exist.
Applets are unavailable.
Applets would be available.
If some of the applets have been depracted or have not been ported to gnome-2.0
then I appologize for this bug report.
There are two issues, one is that some of the things in GNOME 1 gnome-applets
are no longer in GNOME 2 gnome-applets (mostly applets with no active maintainer
didn't get ported). You may find that some features have just relocated, though.
e.g. I do seem to have a System Monitor applet that does at least swap space
Second issue is that GNOME 1 applets aren't compatible, so third-party applets
need to be ported.
We probably won't diverge from upstream on either of these points, feature
requests for e.g. the System Monitor applet or requests for new applets should
go to http://bugzilla.gnome.org, requests to port third-party applets should
go to the upstream maintainers or bug trackers of those applets. We'll be
porting the RHN applet and the rp3/redhat-config-network applet probably though.
Closing the general bug, since it doesn't really help track each individual
