I have downloaded the Ubuntu Tips applet .deb from here and installed it. But I am not getting any indicator. When I tried to run it from termial I am getting following error

spv@matrix:(~)$ /usr/share/ubuntu-tips-applet/ubuntu-tips-applet.py 

(ubuntu-tips-applet.py:4695): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/ubuntu-tips-applet/ubuntu-tips-applet.py", line 13, in <module>
    import gnome.ui
ImportError: No module named gnome.ui

Please tell me how can I get it working on 11.10.

Install python-gnome2 which provide gnome.ui module. I guess that should work.

So do

sudo apt-get install python-gnome2

After reading this article, I released the tips are just a fortune data file.

So you could:

  • Install indicator-fortune from my [PPA];(https://launchpad.net/~thebernmeister/+archive/ubuntu/ppa)
  • Install fortunes-ubuntu-server;
  • In the preferences for indicator-fortune either add the fortunes directory, /usr/share/games/fortunes which will add all installed fortunes, or specifically add the file /usr/share/games/fortunes/ubuntu-server-tips.dat.
