    I’m a KDE (SUSE) user. Before I get all excited does this applet run under KDE? I read that Gnome applets “should” run but I thought I would check first.

    I haven’t tried to run it under KDE, however if GNOME applets should run under KDE then the Equake applet should run also. Since I made a conscious effort to code it according to the GNOME standards. As long as you have the right developer packages for the relevant gnome libraries it should compile at least. I do not know how KDE renders GNOME applets, whether it displays them in its own panel or renders them in some kind of X window. But as I said, if you have other applets that run under KDE this one should also.

    Let me know if you have any success. I should try it myself too actually.

      There are some library issues with my version of Gnome. Although managed to load libgnomeui-2.0, libpanelapplet-2.0 is replaced with libpanelapplet-4.0. This gets me to the compile
      stage but then I run into changes between V2 and V4 starting with:

      equake_func.h:51:3: error: unknown type name ‘PanelAppletBackgroundType’
      equake_func.h:174:3: error: unknown type name ‘BonoboUIComponent’

      I need a bit more time to see what changes are required. I could try to find a copy of libpanelapplet-2.0 but I may then run into other compatibility issues.

      I will try and put some more time in later this week.

        I don’t know which distribution you use, but it’s available for Debian: http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libpanel-applet2-dev
        I know that many things changed for gnome3 including the way applets are handled, but as far as I know older applets still work. You should be able to install both 2.0 and 4.0 alongside eachother. This is for example the case with GTK 1.x and GTK 2.x, but again I haven’t yet tested this in gnome3.

        I’ll test this both in gnome3 and KDE and see if there are any issues.
