Where to download Linux desktop gadgets?(9 posts)
'This project is still in development stage' as is Linux. Linux is a very different environment from Windows.
As in Windows, a gadget may become unusable after an update for instance because they are created by outside developers/communities.
It is not Microsoft who has to correct a 'gadget' problem.
It really is a case experimenting and report back to the developer who may then do additional work, based on your problem.
I use conky on my various machines running xubuntu. A steep learning curve to set up, but by now I've managed to make a few different versions of it, one as a horizontal strip on my netbook (an autohiding panel covers it when needed so the screen real estate hit is minimized) and vertical setups on desktop and laptop. I'm not sure how it would integrate with Unity desktop in Ubuntu, but works fine in Gnome and Xfce4 for me. Once you learn to edit the conky.conf file confortably it is highly customizable.
