Gnome-Do error: Could not load desktop item: libgnome-desktop-2.so.17

I'm running Fedora 15 with Gnome 3. I installed Gnome-Do using 'yum install gnome-do'. I opened it from the Terminal by typing 'gnome-do' but I keep getting an error message that says

Could not load desktop item: libgnome-desktop-2.so.17

Gnome-Do opens but it doesn't display any application I search for and when I try opening the Gnome-Do preferences, it quits.

Any way to resolve this issue?

Update: Solved. I installed gnome-desktop-2.32.0-8.fc16.i686.rpm from here: http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...esktop-2.so.17 and then installed Gnome-Do. Everything works fine now.
