    screenlets

    I'm trying to install a screenlet and it tells me this:

    Install as usual by extracting the contents of the screenlet's archive to the directory "$HOME/.screenlets".
    (http://screenlets.org/index.php/Wireless)

    Where is this?

    The folder you are looking for is the HOME folder.

    Click PLACES > COMPUTER > HOME > SCREENLETS.

    You might not see it either because there are alot of files and folders in there that aren't viewable. you can just go to that folder, select view in the menu at the top... and then select show hidden files.

    Actually, I believe that will be a little off at least for Ubuntu/Hardy...

    P)laces H)ome (desktop menu)
    or
    /home/<username> (command line)
    or
    the <username> folder at the top left of any nautilus folder.

    You must show hidden (ctrl-h keypress or V)iew S)how-hidden-files nautilus menu) because its .screenlets too.

    If you're using the screenlet manager. open it and just drag and drop the screenlet over the open screenlet manager window. All hidden files and directories that start with a dot are hidden. You can view these by using Ctrl-H to show them or hide them.
