Screenlets Manager doesn't load

Postby wallowinthemire » Fri Mar 14, 2008 2:07 pm

I'm completely new to Linux, and I'm trying to load up the screenlets manager, but I seem to be getting a common problem, which is that the manager will pop up for less than a second and disappear. I've tried solutions I found just googling around, but none of them have resolved the issue. Can anyone help me out? When I try to run the screenlets manager from console, i get this

Code: Select all

/home/morgan/.config/autostart/Screenlets Daemon.desktop
Starter already exists.
Traceback (most recent call last):

This is?
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
