Architecture for desktop applets
  12 reviews

GDesklets is an architecture for "desklets", which are tiny applets sitting on your desktop in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness.

You can populate your desktop with status meters, icon bars, weather sensors, news tickers... whatever you can imagine... Virtually anything is possible and may even be available some day.

This package includes a small number of applets.

I do see that the most reviews are pretty old. As the application is now I love it. I searched for desktop widgets (desklet) and got them. I especially wanted the watch. I also love the fact that you can code your own.

Mint 16 Mate 64 installed and running on a 32 GB USB drive. As a nearly complete NOOB, located, installed, used the program. I installs just fine and seems to do what it says it will. The program may be useless, but for me, it DOES work "out of the box".

It doesn't work "out of the box." You must modify some code in a .PY file to make it work. Afterwards, it runs for about a minute and then freezes.
