Seems to work great -The problem ive been having is hardware
Ive been using a intel dual core …. crap
Ive switched back to my amd chip and it is well better
I wont touch intel again ugghhh….
Pipex adsl is crap its unreal
I was on eclipse before pipex and my connection was ace but they had a strange problem with billing and they would forget to bill me for months and not worry and then sometimes forget a month and just chop me off! which is no good for my business.
So i moved to pipex as it said it was a 24/7 support and a business style connection
Well the tech support is 9-7 and the connection is modem speed its crap
Im gutted – I need to loose this connection FAST
Dont sign up to pipex its a load of bollocks.
Try eclipse thats what im going back to!

Google Gadgets is an open-source application which allows you to beautify your desktop using the huge number of useful gadgets Google provides. The project is still in development, so there is possible to have several bugs, but nevertheless, it works.
In order to compile and install Google Gadgets, first install the necessary development packages:
apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libtool
apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev libdbus-1-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libgtk2.0-dev libmozjs-dev libqt4-dev libqt4-opengl-dev librsvg2-dev libxml2-dev libxul-dev xulrunner
Next, download the source from the project’s website. Uncompress it, change the current working directory to google-gadgets-for-linux-0.10.2 (or whatever version you have) and do the usual:
make install as root. Google Gadgets should be built with both GTK and Qt interface, and to run it use ggl-qt for Qt or ggl-gtk for GTK.
