I am thinking of switching to Fedora from Ubuntu but...
I can not seem to get working the latest version of Screenlets. I managed to find a tutorial and installed version 0.1.2, but is still pretty buggy.
Is there a way to get version 0.1.6 working?
Why is Screenlets program not in the Fedora repository? I am open to using alternatives to Screenlets.

I managed to install the latest version to work just fine.
Dependency: Python and pytz. I got the tar from> and installed it with:
sudo make install
and deleted the surce.
This package comes with no screenlets so I got them from here> and extracted the to .screenlets folder. I found that the program works better after a restart.
