    Geektool Problem-PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!
    So I was using Geektool trying to create a calendar and a clock on my desktop.
    However, when I dragged the shell icon onto my desktop, the "properties window" did pop up, however there's nothing in it.
    It looks like this. I tried everything I could but there's just nothing in the properties window.
    What should I do?

    I recently upgraded my system to Mac OS Lion. I used to use GeekTool before and everything was fine.
    What is the problem? Is it related to my system upgrade?
    PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    Thank you very much.

    No worries, it's an easy fix. Your version of Geektool isn't Lion compatible so grab the newest one and it will work.
    This version is a Application in your Applications folder, so uninstall the system preferences pane so there are no conflicts.

    From either the App Store -> GeekTool on the Mac App Store
    Or his DropBox account -> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1760713/GeekTool-3.0.2.zip/

    Hi I've downloaded the latest one from appstore but it comes up with another problem.

    The preference panel does contain something but when I enter the commands it does not show anything in display. (even after I pressed refresh)

    Any ideas?

    Yeah those two were ticked by default but still no output on the geeklet.

    I use clean install lion that may be the problem but I installed the latest one from app store so it should be ok right?

    Yes you should be fine, strange indeed.
    Mind linking the geeklet? Maybe something is wrong with it.

    Hi thanks for the reply

    Oddly enough after reinstalling from the appstore the problem still persists...

    Sorry how do you link the geeklet? By that do you mean the source?

    UPDATE:

    Got some of the feature working like echo so I presume the geektool itself is working but the shell scripts that I found on the web was not.

    Sorry for the fuss.

    Thanks for the help again

    Yeah, thats what I was trying to figure out. Some scripts (Most weather scripts) depend on websites to work properly, and if that website does a layout change or simply disappears then the script can't find whatever it is looking for and ceases to work correctly.
