Fix Gdesklets so that it works.

All that is required is a symlink and an edit using nano.

Open a terminal and do

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python2.5 /usr/bin/python2.6


Then do

Code: Select all
sudo nano /usr/lib/gdesklets/utils/ErrorFormatter.py


Nano will open showing the document to allow editing it.

Scroll down until you find the line

Code: Select all
def _new_imp(name, globs = {}, locls = {}, fromlist = []):


Edit it so that it looks like

Code: Select all
def _new_imp(name, globs = {}, locls = {}, fromlist = [], test = []):


Triple check it before saving it.

To save the edit simple strike ctrl X.

A line will pop up at the bottom asking for y or no.

Select y and enter.

Now open Gdesklets.

Okay everybody had some free time in last two days , so I wrote a new ati-video driver script this does it all. The only thing you have to do is answer a few questions like what release are you using :eg maverick,lucid,or natty, or X86 or amd64 . It even asks if want to install experimental video acceleration or if you want to go back to open source drivers , it well do that as well.

Okay I cannot edit my own post oh well. I have updated the script to be automatic (it now knows what architecture you are using and what flavor (maverick, natty, or lucid and the best part is it is all automatic now, until ubuntu or linux changes their commands).The only part that is not automatic is the experimental stuff because "that" should be your choice not mine ( To be honest I did not see any difference). Tomorrow is work -- oh joy !!! NOT !!!
