I know you dont want to hear this, but "It works for me".
Heh. Well, a response is better than what I got out of my last email to
this list so I'm happy :)
Well then this will have you positively jumping for joy... :-)
Things to check, version of perl-gnome package. For me, it is in
and more Gnome.pm, shows
$VERSION = '0.7003';
$VERSION is 0.7004, so no that isn't it (unless there is a version
the other thing to make sure is that you are doing a

in fact, I just tried the applet.pl code with
and I got the same error. My guess would be to use
The applet.pl code (both in the Debian package and in the source) uses
Gnome and not Gtk. Adding a "use Gtk;" so that it calls both also doesn't
help at all. Of course, commenting out the "use Gnome;" line also gives
the same result, as does trying "require Gnome;" instead.
You seem to be very confused about what use and require does, but thats not whats
causing you problems...
Additional data points: the test.pl script in the source directory seems
to show that everything is installed correctly- all the other Gnome
samples run fine. So, it shouldn't be an installation problem. The OS is
Debian, last night's woody, so Paolo is to blame somehow :)
Anyway, thanks for the help, Jake- anyone else have any ideas as to what
might be wrong or how I can do more diagnostics? Thanks in advance-
For some reason the panel/applet code doesn't get installed by default. You should
run the following in the Gnome dir:
perl Makefile.PL --with-panel
The you should be able to run the applet sample without a hitch, at least I can.
Oh and shame on you for not reading the INSTALL.
