Anyone remember Konfabulator / Yahoo Widgets? Anyone still use it/ them?
Well, I do… to track my IP, and put rotating pictures on my desktop. Pretty low-level stuff, but it's been part of my desktop UX for a decade.
Trouble is, something has gone rotten. The app(lette?) itself spontaneously quits, and the pop-out pref bar disappears, while the widgets themselves continue running. My rotating pictures in Picture Frame present, but they've walked down my screen. Typically I would occasionally open prefs and move them back up. Now I'm unable.
As a fix, I tried simply deleting the package and reinstalling, but it persists in flaking on me. I searched root and user /Library and /Preferences for tell-tale associated files to kill to no avail.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to diagnose / and fix? I'd be happy to step away from it if anyone has a suggested replacement that will run in the background, and rotate through images in a user defined directory.
For better or worse I'm running Lion on a 2 x 2 GHz Dual Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro Tower.
