OK. I'm taking my words back. It's not that good at all: buggy and unusable. It does not start at all. Have to reinstall it to make it start again.
Using plasma on gnome desktop is way better.

Thanks. I am now getting hit with a python gobject error (You need to install python-gobject >= 2.15).

Do I need to compile the source for the latest python gobject or can this work in python 2.14?

Why on earth doesn't this work for me!? I'm using Ubuntu 9.04.

I install it to screenlets, activates, and NOTHING happens. But when it finally works, (not often) it dissapers after a reboot. This is still after i've checked the "autostart on login".

Overall, this is the most unstable thing i've comed across. It's a shame, cause i like it ALOT when it works for about 15min.
