It will be better if you know how to upgrade to Hoary Version of Ubuntu.
The application name is.. gdesklets search a bit for this name here, some people didn't know how to install and the application work "how it should" =)

gdesklets shows the "osx" like toolbar , the weather, etc..

some people having problems to see my shot, try it:

I think is this what you're looking for... to install, try:

"sudo apt-get install gdesklets-data"

(it will install normal gdesklets package as a dependecy, the *-data packages is the "plugins-pack")

ok, good luck...

Ive been very reluctant to upgrade to hoary because i fear it is not stable enough for me. Can you tell me differently?

What does this mean? Also I am now trying to install the starter bar. I go to the folder the bin file is in and type sh 'filename' then i get this plus sign for my curser and nothing happens. I click my mouse and this is the output.
