View Full Version : gdesklet = won't load display

15th September 2004, 06:49 PM
Heyas i'm just trying to get gdesklets to load a few displays that i want running on my computer. I'm currently trying to get psii-small to work on my computer. I've downloaded and installed the sensors and managed to get the daemon running. When i type "gdesklets open networkinfo.display" or any other display i get the same error message:

raceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/share/gdesklets/factory/SensorFactory.py", line 75, in create_sensor
sensor = module.new_sensor(args)
File "./Theme/__init__.py", line 112, in new_sensor
def new_sensor(args): return apply(Theme, args)
File "./Theme/__init__.py", line 31, in __init__
for a in output[0].split():
IndexError: list index out of rang

Then another window would pop up giving this message:

Invalid display file '/home/mike/.gdesklets/Displays/diskinfo.display'

The display file contains invalid data and could not be loaded.

I'm using KDE on FC2, any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I've looked through the gdesklets thread but couldn't find a similar problem to mine.

By going through the forums at gnome i semi solved the problem by following rafaels instructions located on this link for those who are interested:


Additional note: If you can't get the desklets to load move your displays and sensors into your directory ~/.gdesklets/Sensors (you might have to create the directory Sensors) and then try loading the displays.

i managed to get psi displays working, but i couldn't get the psi HD desklets to work.

This is for gdesklets 0.30 compiled from a tarball not an rpm.
