nothing happens on startup

Asked by braineatingalien on 2007-11-21

Not sure if this is a bug or not but when I open the program gdesklets it just comes up with a window that all grey and has a tile of gDesklets Shell and if I click close it will ask me to force quit it or if I just let it sit there it will disappear over time. I have a HP dv6000z laptop and I have tried reinstalling it using the synaptic package manager

apparently deleting the hidden file ".gDesklets" in your /home/[usr] directory does the trick.
