    Default Opensuse 11.4/KDE and google gadgets

    I am running Opensuse 11.4/KDE on HP Pavilion.
    I installed the kde package to integrate google gadgets.
    If I search for a website to download google gadgets, none seem to offer this ?, for example:

    Download Google Desktop Sidebar Gadgets - Google Gadgets, Holiday Gadgets, Christmas Frame, Santa Clock, Google Desktop Gadgets, Memory Smiley, Battery Life, CPU Smiley, Bible Verse of the Day, Color Clock, Quote of the Day, Random Chicken Cartoon, L
    or
    Inside Google Desktop

    Try to download one, it doesn't work

    Inside Google Desktop
    As of September 14, Google Desktop will no longer be available for download, and existing installations will not be updated to include new features or fixes.

    afaik gadgets is considered a part of Google Desktop

    Inside Google Desktop: Google Desktop Update
    As such, we’ll be discontinuing support for Google Desktop, including all of the associated APIs, services, plugins and gadgets.

    ok, now I see GG depend on GD which has become obsolete. But that I still can install GG (gtk or qt) ?? How ?

    I was also looking for KDE widgets that are better then the ones that are offered by the system, e.g.. I never came accross a radio station/broadcast tuner widget type ?

    Hi
    Via YaST software management, search on google. I'm guessing you want
    to install google-gadgets-qt. You should then get a menu entry to start
    it.
