Troubles during screenlets installation in fedora 22

Not able to install screenlets in fedora 22

I tried to install various dependencies, but its not working out

the following message comes while typing screenlets

$ screenlets
No module RSVG , graphics will not be so good
GConf python module not found. GConf settings backend is disabled.
Cannot create /tmp/screenlets-manager.py.log logfile. Using STDERR instead.
Traceback (most recent call last):

w.set_icon_list(icontheme.load_icon(“screenlets”, 24, 0))
glib.GError: Icon ‘screenlets’ not present in theme

I am too trying to resolve the matter, but the help from experts are necessary here.

It seems you don’t have Python Gnome Conf installed on the system, try to install them using dnf command as shown.

dnf install gnome-python2-gconf

After that try to install screenlets again and see, if you still gets error don't worry post here I would love to help you out..

Thanks for your help.

Even after installing gnome-python2-gconf and re-installing screenlets same error is following.
basically I downloaded and installed screenlets as per the following advice from “ask.fedoraproject.org” site

step-1
wget https://launchpad.net/screenlets/trunk/0.1.6/+download/screenlets-0.1.6.tar.bz2
tar xvjf screenlets-0.1.6.tar.bz2
sudo chmod +x -R screenlets-0.1.6
cd screenlets-0.1.6
sudo make install

step-2
Installed BeautifulSoup

step-3
Installed libwnck

Note: all dependencies I searched using command e.g. “dnf search BeautifulSoup”

I just gone through the Fedora repo and I see there isn’t any screenlets package available, so the only solution is to compile it from source, but that too difficult due to bunch of dependencies requirements. I suggest you to go for cairo-dock, which can be easily installed as:

dnf install cairo-dock

Many thanks I have done with cairo-dock.
