Alright dude :)

 

i will explains you where i get those from..

 

1. the software called gdesklets doing those things u can downlaod from RPM (works),

2. you need to download some senosr and display from gdesklets with display & sensor

3. unpack in folder whatever you want - i use /home/venom/Display/

 

weather forcecast is GoodWeather. extract it in /home/venom/Display/GoodWeather.

 

open that folder and double click or run the Install*.bin <--- sensor.

then in Terminal, to load up the display on your desktop. you need to run the gdesklet (background) 1st. then, to load the display type: gdesklets /home/venom/Display/GoodWeather/GoodWeather.display

 

now the weather show up on your desktop.

 

Other things, on the right hand side is: LTVariations in Misc -> Misc.

 

bottom pandle - launcher can be found in Toolbars amd launchers, i use: StartBar

 

Once you change the settiongs, possision etc.. and it just display like that all the time, when you reboot or shutdown. you won't have to need to load up the display again, it just load up when you run the gdesklets :)

 

hope this helps you, feel free to ask more question :)

hmm i'm having problems with gdesklets again

 

i did an up2date and one of the things it updated was the DM since then gdesklets appears to start but i dont see anything, so i hopped onto the rpm links above, download 0.26 version of gdesklets and did

 

[root@localhost root]# rpm -Uvh /home/anyweb/downloads/gdesklets-0.26-0.rhfc1.dag.i386.rpm
warning: /home/anyweb/downloads/gdesklets-0.26-0.rhfc1.dag.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
  1:gdesklets              ########################################### [100%]
[root@localhost root]#

 

it installed fine as you can see,

 

i then did

 

 

[anyweb@localhost GoodWeather]$ ./Install_GoodWeather_Sensor.bin

[anyweb@localhost GoodWeather]$

and that said 'its ready to use' and all seems fine,

 

but now when i click on the redhat/accessories/gdesklets all i get is a gdesklets icon in the system tray beside my up2date icon (see screenshot)

 

so... what am i doing wrong here ?

i'm running fedora core release 1

 

cheers

the running as gdesklets is a moe like a deamon which is running in background. once you got it running, then you need to run the .diaply like: gdesklets /home/venom/diaply/goodweather.display

 

that's all, so the goodweather will show up on your desktop

With the latest version of gdesklets you can simply get the URL of the sensor and display and install it that way. Right click on your gdesklets icon >> manage desklets >> install a desklet remotely... Same goes for starting your desklets, right click your gdesklets icon >> manage desklets >> then select a desklet and start

yup, just do this:

 

gdesklet shell &

 

that will open the gdesklets shell, click and choose the ones you want and thats it.

 

then for the future, all you need to is start gdesklets as:

 

gdesklets &

 

it will remember the settings ;)

equally for non kde/gnome users, simply open the gdesklets shell from above and all will be well :)
