gDesklets - provides an advanced architecture for desktop applets
SYNOPSISgdesklets open [ display ]
DESCRIPTIONgDesklets provides an advanced architecture for desktop applets -- tiny displays sitting on your desktop in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness.
Populate your desktop with status meters, icon bars, weather sensors, news tickers... whatever you can imagine! Virtually anything is possible and maybe even available some day.
FIRST STARTYou can find an entry in the GNOME menu after a successful installation. This will start the gDesklets Shell where you can install and run desktop applets. When you log out or quit 'gDesklets', the settings will be remembered for the next session.
COMMAND LINE TOOLThe command line tool gdesklets lets you perform all administration tasks from the command line.
Display files can be opened using
$ gdesklets open <displayfile>
If the gdesklets-daemon wasn't running, this will start up the daemon as well. You can only have one daemon per X-display. The daemon can be stopped again by calling
$ gdesklets stop
Usage of the command line frontend:
gdesklets [option] <command> [arguments...]
