Problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet"

Postby wb53tx » Thu Sep 11, 2008 11:26 pm

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet".

That's the error when I try to add the clock applet by right clicking on the destop panel.

I removed the clock applet because suddenly Gnome started complaining whenever I would log in to the system that there was, alas, an error loading "OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet". I was then given an option to remove it from my settings, which eventually I did, and now I can't get it back because when I try I get the message at the top.

Any ideas?

This has to do with bonobo
Start gconf-editor (from a terminal) and check this key
OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet should be present
locked and panel_right_stick should be selected
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
