Hi, I have just made a pacman -Syf gdesklets, and my starterbar desklet doesn't work. When I add a starterbar desklet with the new gdesklets GUI, there only appears a small square, and cannot add any launcher to the starterbar.
Please help me!!!
Is there a way to downgrade to gdesklets 0.26???
first question: did you try version 0.30 of starterbar?
next, the proper way to install a pkg is starting:
then go to file->install pkg
you have to select the tar.bz2 or .tar.gz pkg and it will be installed and categorized, then try to start starter bar from the shell.

i use version 0.30 of the Starterbar and have tried to install the desklet pkg the way you said, but it's the same. StarterBar won't start.
ok i have found a solution to the problem.
You have to edit ~/.gdesklets/Sensors/StarterBar/IconSet.py
watcher = FileWatcher(self.__orderfile)
and replace with:
watcher = FileWatcher.FileWatcher(self.__orderfile)
gconfwatcher = GConfWatcher("/desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme")
and replace it with:
gconfwatcher = GConfWatcher.GConfWatcher("/desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme")
I edited those lines, and starterbar still wont open.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/gnome/share/gdesklets/factory/SensorFactory.py", line 75, in create_sensor sensor = module.new_sensor(args) AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'new_sensor'
I have also installed PYXDG. Nogo.
I gave up... GDesklets is much too buggy.
Did you install pyxdg from staging/punkrockguy318?

I was facing many problems with gDesklets earlier (I really wanted that startbar to work)....
Well, I am glad to tell u that it is working now.
I have found that the key to make gDesklets work is having proper packages installed....
I had updated python and pyXdg earlier, but always the same errors ...
then one day I installed wxpython for some other purpose and thats it .... gDesklet startbar was working !!!!!
and off course ... gDesklets

yeah, i installed pyxdg from your repo. i actually was able to get the clock applet to run.. but i couldnt get the starter bar to run. myabe i'll give it a go this weekend.
well, to my surprise... the starterbar is now working! yah! nothing like useless eye candy to eat up my cpu
