comment KEY.is_pressed() in gi.repository.Gdk?
Just to note my logistics demands for the same kind of problem: I am developing a plugin for a pygtk app; the app itself registers as a listener for a given shortcut. I'd like the plugin to do different things, based on whether the keys for that shortcut are still held or not - however, it seems that I'd have to change the core of the application, to have a management based on press/release events. If I had a way to "peek" into status of keyboard keys at any time - then the plugin could have used that, instead of changing the application core.

comment “Simple” gnome applets in Unity - stickynotes
Well, finally I tested this gnome-applet technique - and indeed, it works fine for me on Natty! However, in the meantime I found a command-line based technique, which I posted in this answer, so I accepted that instead.. Thanks again - cheers!

comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
Thanks for the code - I'm on Lucid, and I simply saved this as /usr/bin/xdg-openpy, and gave it a chmod +x - and used launcher.launch([],context) instead of ...None,context) (because of "TypeError: argument 1: Must be sequence, not NoneType"). Now xdg-openpy app.desktop works from command line (and all as normal when double-clicking app.desktop), and it can remind me if I try to call in terminal xdg-open and press tab. Cheers!
