I've been trying for three days to get Gdesklets to run on my FreeBSD 5.2 system. It's been the most frustrating experience of my very short FreeBSD career. One dependency after the other crashed during make or wouldn't run or couldn't be found. After consulting the www.freebsd.org/gnome pages and running the necessary gnome update scripts, I finally got the Gdesklets port installed and lo and behold, I get the following error when I try to launch it:

# gdesklets
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/X11R6/bin/gdesklets", line 10, in ?

from _gtk import *
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/_gtk.so: Undefined symbol "PyUnicodeUCS2_FromUnicode"


I have no idea how to begin to fix this or patch it and I'm verging on giving up on the project all together (it's just that those desklets are so damn cool!).

Does anybody know how I can solve this issue and finally start enjoying my fancy desktop displays?

Thanks in advance,
