Coming from the Mac world, I must say that I love the ability to configure the appearance of my Desktop to my likings above all other features (the rest happens under the hood, and I won’t make a difference anyways )
One of the features I like is the ability to display the system monitor on the desktop.
Conky can do that, but it’s not really easy to configure. Of course Conky Manager helps a lot, but it offers rather little themes
That is why I was interested in the so called “Screenlets”.
But my question is : are those supposed to be really compatible with Ubuntu 15.10 and MATE 1.12 ?
I am asking because I some days ago, my computer would not wake up after having gone to sleep over the night…
I forced a reboot and got some errors on rebooting…
Ignored the errors, but after a short “sleep”, the desktop woke to a log screen… with no log options.
Forced reboot again, and another error.
All this happened shortly after I installed and used the screenlets.
Uninstalled them and since then no more errors.
But of course, as I am pretty new to Linux, I might have overlooked something upon install or maybe installed/removed things I shouldn’t have…
So I was just wondering if anyone else uses screenlets on MATE 1.12 and if so, what screelets he uses and if he also encounters problems…
Thanks for your answers.
