Yay! That worked!

Thanks for the instructions! - May 09 2011
so, i've added a guayadeque icon to the real_icons apps folder and added a link to it in the other apps folder, and it shows up just fine, but I can't get any of the scripts to work on it. (ie it does not change color when I change the rest of the theme.)

so... how can I get the script to affect it? - May 06 2011

YAY, that totally worked! Thank you! - Feb 09 2011
Well, now that it is 2011, the desklet gets the day of the week wrong. How can I fix this? I really want to keep using it! - Feb 08 2011
I really really like this widget. I'll be very excited when it is available as a screenlet, because I prefer that program.

but I have one issue: noon appears as 00:00pm rather than 12:00pm and I don't know how to change this. Would you please be so kind as to tell me what source code I need to change and what to change it to? I would think it was a simple procedure. - Oct 23 2010

There are loads of distro-specific things on this site. There is nothing wrong with putting something up that is both gnome and ubuntu. - Jan 19 2011

Thank You! I love the DIY Overkill!

I really like having control over the appearance of screenlets, since I have to stare at them all the time. And if I don't like how it looks, why would I use it, right?

You are awesome for giving your users so much control over your screenlet! There is pretty much nothing I can't change to my liking now, so I'm very satisfied. (The only thing I can possibly think of is the ability to change the distance between the lines. But I don't even know if this is possible. And it's nice but by no means necessary. (it would only affect which fonts a person could use).)

Anyway, it's great! And I replaced the line with "pass" like you said. So far I still can't use the autostart, but whatever! It's still a great screenlet!!! - Nov 09 2010
I didn't mean to post this twice... is there a way to delete the other one? - Nov 03 2010
So, if I remove "self.__notifier.notify("Invalid login, check username and password.")" the balloon does go away, but my Gcal also disappears. What happens normally is the notifier balloon keeps popping up, and my Gcal goes from "not connected to internet" to nothing there at all. So when I took out the notifier line, the balloon goes away, but my Gcal still disappears. If I then refresh all screenlets, it refreshes as normal, and my Gcal appears again. But I still can't get it to just load from start up for some reason. Yet as long as I start it after I am successfully connected to the internet, it loads ok.
(Should I try removing all of "except Exception: self.__notifier.notify("Invalid login, check username and password.")return False"? To get around Gcal disappearing, is there a command I could add in place of the notify line that would tell it to keep reloading or refreshing until it works? If I could get it to do that, I could use the autostart.)

One other question, if you have the time/desire. Is there something I can add to the py to make all-day events appear flush to the bullet rather than after a blank space where the time normally is? Would there be a simple way to tell it to do this if all-day or if no time? Along the same vein, is there a way to make all-day events italic?

Thanks! - Nov 02 2010

well, it turns out the notify issue doesn't have to do with the wireless not being connected yet. The balloon still keeps popping up, and won't stop until I close down gcal and restart it... - Oct 28 2010
I can avoid the notify problem by not having gcal on autostart. I have the tray icon up and I can just tell it to start gcal once my computer is connected to the internet. (I think the problem could possibly have to do with my computer connecting to my wireless router before the router has finished connecting to the internet. I haven't tested this yet, but do you think that may be the issue?) I would, of course, love to be able to have gcal on autostart, but if I can't stop the notify popups, I'll settle for this workaround.

as for the time: I GOT IT! When I ran gcal through the terminal like you said, I saw that for the two most populated calendars I have, the TZ was listed as UTC. I went back through my google calendar online and fixed it. (I honestly don't know when/how those time zones got changed, because they used to be right!) Sorry to make you go through all that! And thanks so much for the command line, I probably would have just kept missing it without seeing that. Damn, now I just feel stupid...

but YAY! I'm so happy now.

...though, if you have a suggestion about the autostart/notify issue, I would love to hear it.

You are awesome for helping me out with all this!!! - Oct 28 2010
I installed the stayinalive program and have worked around the notify popups.

but the time is still off. I definitely have the newest version. I have tried deleting and reinstalling a few times. I tried installing old versions. but the time is still shows up +7 hrs.

is there some way I can play with this? is there somewhere in the .py i should be looking, or some way to code it to subtract 7 hrs? - Oct 27 2010
well, i removed the lines you suggested, but the alerts kept popping up and i couldn't get them to stop so I restarted my computer, but now gcal won't launch at all. my other screenlets launch fine, so I know it's not my screenlet manager. I will try putting the lines back in and see if the screenlet will launch then.

one other thing: the times it shows are way off. stuff set for 9:30am show up 4:30pm (or 16:30 in 24 hr time). but I know my google calendar is set to the right time. Do you know why it could be doing this? - Oct 26 2010
well, there's one more thing I would really like to fix. I have gcal on autostart, but when it connects to the internet, a notify balloon pop up that says 'Gcal - invalid user name or password.' It's not an invalid username or password, and usually a little bit later it succeeds in connecting. But the notify balloon just keeps popping up. as soon as one dissapears another pops up, and it does this even after gcal has successfully logged in and shown my calendar.

how can I get this to stop? it is very very annoying, and so far I've had to open up screenlets and fiddle with removing and adding gcal until it stops (which really defeats the point of having auto-startup).

can I just remove gcal from my notify-daemon? how? - Oct 25 2010
Thanks so much! This widget is PERFECT! - Oct 25 2010
just one more thing: how do I change the time format from 24 hrs to 12 hrs. I'm not versed in code, but when I screened through the py file I couldn't find the command for it.

My google calendar is in 12 hour format, so I assume the widget format isn't dependent on that?

Also, thank you for your answers to my questions! I appreciate that you are willing to help the people using your lovely widget!! - Oct 23 2010
It's alive!

I reinstalled it again and this time it works!

I had tried reinstalling it before (and restarting my computer), but it hadn't helped. This time it did though. My only guess is that something went wrong with the first download(s) I was installing from? Whatever, I don't care as long as it's ok now!

Yay!

I had gcal running fine in 9.10. I installed 10.04 and now when I enter my log in info, it just comes up blank.

my python-gdata is up to date. I followed the instructions on your installation page.

what could have happened? - Oct 21 2010
any way to get the tasks to appear as well? - Sep 27 2010
yeah, sorry, I had to update my python-gdata package. completely ignore my previous premature statement.

also, thanks a lot for this. it was just what I was looking for! - Sep 27 2010
I can't get this to work at all. Every time I enter my log in info and save it, the space where the events are supposed to be just turns blank. ??? - Sep 27 2010
