Ubuntu – Does Unity have any widgets


While upgrading to Ubuntu 11.04, my google-gadgets framework was removed. I thought at the time this is because it's deprecated because there's some alternative integrated in the new unity framework, but I couldn't find any.

Are there any RSS/clock/etc. widgets in Unity? If not – why did the upgrade uninstalled my google gadgets app?
What do I do now?


Best Answer

No, it does not have any widgets you can place on the desktop.

The uninstall was probably because it was installed from a standalone deb and apt marked it as obsolete after the switch to the 11.04 ppas.
