    Default awn-extras /-applets crashing - what's missing ?

    Hi there,

    I'm currently running openSUSE 11.3 x86_64 I've avant-window-navigator and awn-extras

    both 0.4.0-1.2

    python-awn and vala-awn are installed

    almost all applets that I'm adding crash with "Whoops! The applet crashed. Click to restart it."


    what's still missing ? any ideas ?

    many thanks in advance !

    Hey,

    I was having a similar problem (OpenSuse 11.3 w GNOME 3.2). Just ignore the warnings, they probably dont matter! Its the errors you should focus on.

    Just a wild guess, but I think you need to install python. (programs ending with a .py extension are python apps!).

    Regards

    If he didnt have python installed he'd have much larger issues. I'm currently trouble shooting this issue as well, although it's under 11.4. My guess is during the installation file links got screwed up. I had a similar problem with yast2.

    If I figure it out I'll let you know.
