Hi Andrew,

First of all, congrats on becoming a Mod smile.gif

I downloaded the screenlets-0.1.5.tar.bz2 file from this website: https://code.launchpad.net/screenlets/trunk

extracted it, navigated to the folder from Terminal, and as root, ran make install. The next installation step, as mentioned in the Readme, was to enter make menu as root to install the .desktop files. I tried this, but am getting an error saying something like nothing to make.

When I try running screenlets from Terminal, I get the following error:

No GNOME keyring, there will be problems with account options
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/screenlets-manager.py", line 34, in <module>
import screenlets
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/screenlets/__init__.py", line 125, in <module>
import utils
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/screenlets/utils.py", line 36, in <module>
from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulStoneSoup
ImportError: No module named BeautifulSoup


I did some searching for the beautifulsoup/bs module, but didn't find anything in the repos or in Koji.

I mainly want to install Screenlets for the weather, because Gnome panel weather applet doesn't have my location ....

I have them installed. Not sure but likely I installed from ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repositories/home%3A/some-guy%3A/screenlets/RHEL_5/x86_64/screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.x86_64.rpm

I submitted a screenshot a while ago. http://scientificlinuxforum.org/index.php?showtopic=38&view=findpost&p=2963

Pity , I should have made a note of where I obtained the screenlets, so hope that link will
work for you.

Hi U308,

Your screenshot looks really cool! I am hoping to get a weather screenlet like that.

I tried installing the (x86) version of the screenlets.rpm file from that link but there are dependency errors ....

screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.i386 requires python-gtk
screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.i386 requires python-gnome-extras
screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.i386 requires python-gnome
screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.i386 requires gnome-python-desktop
screenlets-0.1.2-18.1.i386 requires python(abi) = 2.4


Tried searching the repos, but most are not present. Did you have to manually download the dependency rpm files from koji or similar & install for it to work?

I got the same dep issue when I tried it here on a test box.

I don't know if you are familiar with conky but might be a good alternative to screenlets. it is pretty customizable,easy to install and is in the EPEL repo.

You could try using the BeautifulSoup rpm from my repo:
http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/release/noarch/

I recommend pkgs.org to search for packages, in my experience it's the most up-to-date and comprehensive Linux package search engine.

Thanks Tux99 .. I managed to successfully install it! Here are the steps, for future reference:

1. Download & extract the screenlets.tar.bz2 file from here: https://code.launchpad.net/screenlets/trunk
2. Open Terminal, navigate to the extracted folder, and as root, run make install
3. Download & install the Python-BeautifulSoup rpm file from tux99's repo: http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/release/noarch/
4. Two more dependencies need to be installed. These are: gnome-python2-libwnck & python-numeric.
5. gnome-python2 is present in the default SL repo
6. python-numeric for EL6 is present in Koji. Link: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=213877
7. That's it! Open Terminal, type screenlets, press Enter
8. Download screenlets from Gnome-look website: http://gnome-look.org/index.php?xsortmode=down&page=0&xcontentmode=6700 & install it by clicking "Install" button. Enjoy!

Good, well done Zugzwang. ( I think I installed the dependencies you referred to previously before installing screenlets. Probably depends on which repos you had enabled.)

@tux99; Welcome back, bet you have a good tan now biggrin.gif Plenty of packaging in your inbox ?

I wish... I didn't go anywhere, just going through a very busy period, don't have much spare time for tinkering with computers at the moment, unfortunately. sad.gif
