Bugs in Screenlets – My first attempt

with one comment

I had earlier written about screenlets in my blog few days ago which you can find here. And when i started using few of them , i found tht some of them had silly bugs like the clock showing some wrong time and the battery meter not displaying the correct status.

These are not vista like gadgets which run on some dll files. these are open source ones and were written using python. So last night when i thought of studying for comp Arch , this idead struck me. “Why  not rectify these errors ” .So i sat down before my comp. and tried to understand the python source codes an finally came out with solutions and woohaa !!! they really work fine now..

So tht was my first outing of contributing back to open source(though i have not distributed them back). So if any body  needs the correct code for the ACPI Battery Screenlet and the Clock Screen let. do mail me at sathya.phoenix@gmail.com
