    Smile Live Cricket Score applet for Gnome desktop

    I have written a nice applet which will show live cricket match score at gnome panel, the same way, we see date/time. It is written in python. It will also score updates through libnotify module. You can select matches from matches in progress.
    Sceen Shot:


    1) Match selection preference if there are multiple matches in progress.
    2) Wicket, four, sixes update through libnotify pop ups.
    3) see score of multiple matches at same time.

    Download link and more screen shot available at CricScore

    Enjoy,

    Thanks,

    Re: Live Cricket Score applet for Gnome desktop

    I get an error while attempting to add it to a panel.

    Running it from terminal gives:

    cricketscore.py run-in-window
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/local/bin/cricketscore.py", line 24, in <module>
    import cricscore_prefs
    File "/usr/local/bin/cricscore_prefs.py", line 25, in <module>
    import io
    ImportError: No module named io


    Running Python 2.5.2-3 on Debian Lenny, all other dependencies are matched. Anything I can do to fix this?

    Upgrade python to 2.6, IO module is part of python 2.6.

    I will update System Requirements. Thanks for reporting.

    Re: Live Cricket Score applet for Gnome desktop

    Works nicely, Thanks!

    One suggestion - how about a link to cricinfo, or whatever when clicking on the score? Just noticed a wicket had gone, and wanted to read up on the details...

    Also, I'd like to be able to have notifications (notify-osd) on wickets, but not for boundaries, etc - could this be another user-set preference?

    Cheers!
