Description:

A theme to track packages from your desktop.

Requirements
------------
This theme requires wxPython in order to use.

What It Does
-------------
This theme allows you to enter up to 5 packages at a time, to be tracked right from your desktop. The theme updates once an hour and refreshes with the lastest information on your package including:
-Expected Delivery Date
-Package Name
-Current Location
-Latest Details

Currently it supports FedEx, UPS, and USPS.

How To Use It:
---------------
Via the right click menu choose Configure Theme -> Configure Package_Tracker. You will get a GUI configuration window allowing you to enter packages and edit/delete existing ones. After adding your packages and clicking ok, it may take several seconds for the theme to load with the results.

Credits
--------
The theme icon came from kde-look user manowarlord's Crystal Diamond Icons.

Yes, I don't profess to be a great designer. If you unzip the .skz that is downloaded you will see the bg img, and on/off states of the 5 buttons, and the 4 headings(Current Location, Details, etc). These are the files that would need to be altered. Shouldn't be too hard for someone who is good at designing.

It took a full day, and then just started working.

I don't know why.

The packages were listed at the UPS site the day before but it wouldn't get the data until the following day.

Anyways, it is working now.

I currently have 4 packages from UPS entered into it, but it only gives results for one of them, the other three just show blank info, nothing at all.

I double checked all the numbers I have entered into it and they are correct.

I love this little superkaramba widget, but would prefer if it worked for more then one package at a time.

That's interesting, I can't say I've ever had more than 1 ups package, but I know it's worked for fedex packages(having 4 at a time). Could you do me a favor and run superkaramba from the Konsole, simply by typing superkaramba and hitting enter. Then starting Package Tracker, then right click and choose update. Then if you could email the output from the Konsole, I am positive I could fix it. My email is aaronjg at gmail dot com. Thanks in advance.
