Widget-like mini-applications for gnome
  20 reviews

Screenlets are small owner-drawn applications (written in python) that can be described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on your desk". sticky notes, clocks, rulers, ... the possibilities are endless.

the goal of the screenlets base-classes is to simplify the creation of fully themable mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and generally improve the usability and eye-candy of the modern composited linux-desktop.

* real applications, no html-"widgets"
* easy to use, easy to develop
* full compositing support
* works with any composited x desktop (compiz, xfce4, ...)
* works also on non-composited desktop
* included ability to apply themes (svg, png or mixed)
* fully scalable when using svgs
* embedded drag&drop-support
* automated storing of options (using ini or gconf)
* controllable through customizable d-bus service
* can be used together with compiz' widget-plugin to create a
dashboard-like feature as seen on os x
* uses cairo and gtk2 for drawing and windowing

If you want applets on your desktop is this a very good app. Works very good in Mate.

works amazingly on my Linux Mint Maya Cinnamon 64. I installed it for sysmonitor, the rubbish bin, and calendar. Infopanel takes a bit of time to tailor it to your needs, but once done it's fantastic, much better than conky that isn't as easy to set up. Conky is possibly sleeker, but this is more useable. The bin is a bin. Calendar is a calendar, smart and nice. I didn't manage to make weather work, but it's inside Infopanel anyway. Oh, I also installed the clock, Sensor-X1, which goes quite well with the FuriusMoon of the other packet. Edit of the next morning: for reasons which are unknown to me Infopanel, Trash, and Clear Calendar aren't starting on login. This means that I have to start them manually each time, and Infopanel particularly loses ALL its settings, forcing to re-enter them each time. Bugger. Dropping 2 stars because of this. Now using just FuriusMoon

Works wonderfully on my eMachine desktop with LinuxMint 15 (Cinnamon). I am a Windows 7 user and use Rainmeter w/gnometer for desktop info. Screenlets SysMonitor and FreemeteoWeather is so similiar to Rainmeter...I love it. I added Rainlender at the bottom of Sysmonitor to complete my desktop. It is just what I have been looking for for the last 2 months. Thank you...Conky is just too quirky to be really useful.
