I downloaded "NewsTicker 0.10" from the gdesklets site. but i get errors with it and it wont work. I am looking for one that scrolls news at the bottom of my screen like you see on cnn. It would be great if someone could help me with these errors. i do program but never for linux, mainly .net and some java, so don't be worried to help, im not completly stupid lol :)



/home/shawn/.gdesklets/Displays/NewsTicker/ticker.display
> 1 rss = get_control('INewsGrab:49qghn7jup3s5ydphdw5ooq7d-2')




name 'rss' is not defined

It's packaged wrong. The control folder is in the wrong spot. If you installed this as a user,
ln -s ~/.gdesklets/Displays/NewsTicker/controls/NewsGrab ~/.gdesklets/ ~/.gdesklets/Controls/NewsGrab
