gDesklets 0.30: Starterbar doesn't work

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???

Re: gDesklets 0.30: Starterbar doesn't work

first question: did you try version 0.30 of starterbar?

next, the proper way to install a pkg is starting:

gdesklets shell

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.

Re: gDesklets 0.30: Starterbar doesn't work

ok i have found a solution to the problem.
You have to edit ~/.gdesklets/Sensors/StarterBar/IconSet.py

Search this:

watcher = FileWatcher(self.__orderfile)

and replace with:

watcher = FileWatcher.FileWatcher(self.__orderfile)

And search:

gconfwatcher = GConfWatcher("/desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme")

and replace it with:

gconfwatcher = GConfWatcher.GConfWatcher("/desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme")

Re: gDesklets 0.30: Starterbar doesn't work

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. sad

I gave up... GDesklets is much too buggy.

Did you install pyxdg from staging/punkrockguy318?

Re: gDesklets 0.30: Starterbar doesn't work

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 !!!!!

try updating

python
pyXDdg
wxpython

and off course ... gDesklets
