Widgets for Mint

Post by andrewgen »

I just installed Mint, after using Ubuntu for a few weeks, and notice that there are no widgets like the ones that came installed with Ubuntu.
Where can I get "Ubuntu like" widgets for Mint?

Thanks,
Andrew

andrewgen,

Open the synaptic package manager and do a search for 'screenlets' and install the program. Good basic 'goodies' to start you off and then if you need/want more go the the link suggested.

For my personal taste I run the 'weather' screenlet and two 'sensor' screenlets, one for each core of my cpu.


best regards,

marvinudy
