Description:

A themeable Sidebar Screenlet: Install , launch and manage screenlets through the sidebar menu , also allows you to install screenlet packages by drag drop the screenlet tar file into the sidebar , you can reserve screen space for the sidebar and also select the alignment







Instructions to make it work like a sidebar

First go on the sidebar properties and select "keep bellow" and unselect "keep above"
then on all the other screenlets go on properties and unselect "keep above" but DO NOT select "keep bellow" , that way the sidebar will stay bellow and all the other screenlets will stay on top off it but bellow all other windows

If you import .png or .jpg files in the .svg file than you have to put them too into the desklet folder.

eg: the folder is in ~/Documents/desklets/"desklet files" make a new folder (like pics) and put the pics there. Further you have to change the path in inkscape - rightclick on pic and pictuer preferences ( I hope in the english version it is called so because I have the german version). Just change the path in the first line to "/pics" if the folder is called so.

I will try my hand at editing the code, I seem to be getting an import error as follows:

ImportError: cannot import name create_option_from_node
