Another thing that I want to see on my Ubuntu is the graphics and the wobbly thingy and the cube thingy (that’s what I saw on Valiant laptop)… I found out it is screenlets. Been searching hi and lo to find the repositories and I get the following:
Open Synaptic, go to Settings > Repositories > Third-party software, click Add and paste:
deb http://hendrik.kaju.pri.ee/ubuntu gutsy screenlets
then get the key using terminal client
wget http://hendrik.kaju.pri.ee/ubuntu/F854AFD7.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add – && sudo apt-get update
and it happened that ERROR 404: Not found…
Frustration here! then found another one something like above from
deb http://tuxfamily.download.org/ubuntu gutsy screenlets
What happen again??? Same thing ERROR 404. GOSH!
Finally, I found the valid repositories and of course able to install from the following:
Open you Synaptic Package Manager: Settings>Repositories>Third-Party Software>Add
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gilir/ubuntu gutsy main universe
Click the Add Source button and Close to go back to your Synaptic Package Manager Window. Then click on the Reload button.
Search "screenlets" and right click to mark for installation then click Apply button. By doing this, this will install screenlets. Once it is done, you can access it through System > Preferences > Screenlets
Hope all the above would help!
