Installing google gadgets on ubuntu 9.04

Google is a nice addition to your ubuntu 9.04 desktop. Here is how I installed it.

Get the deb package from http://www.getdeb.net/release/3767

$ sudo dpkg -i google-gadgets_0.10.5-1~getdeb2_i386.deb

If it asks for any dependency , install them too.
Open a terminal and run

$ ggl-gtk

Now the google gadget panel will appear on the screen. There are lot of cool gadget available. You can install them by right clicking on the gadget panel.
