But you’re right. I have it running fine on my laptop, but never bothered with it on my desktop. I’ve just tried installing it on my desktop, same results as you’re getting. Now I wonder why it’s still working fine on my laptop, will investigate tomorrow when I’ll be using it again…
It’s odd, I have far fewer problems on my laptop than my blasted desktop! Just don’t update your laptop yet, it might break stuff :.
That weather applet seems to work on some installs, but not others, and combining it with all the other woes I’ve been having lately I’m starting to think it must be sunspots or some odd alien intervention picking just on me >:(.
