       adesklets [OPTION]... [string_id]


       Fake root window detection

       --e16  Enlightenment 16, version 0.16.8 and later

       --kde  KDE >= 3.4.1 desktop detection

              Nautilus desktop detection

       --rox  ROX-Filer detection (incomplete)

       --user Interactive detection (by user click)

              Xfce4  desktop  detection (tested on Xfce4 4.2.x, with xfdesktop
              managing the icons)

       --xffm Xffm desktop window detection  (tested  on  xffm,  with
              xffm-deskview managing the icons)

              When  applicable, do not run the detection for each desklet, but
              only once for all. Of course, desklets on multiple screens  will
              unlikely  detect  the  right fake root window, but it will speed
              things up for single screen settings.

       -w progname
              Wait for at least one  ’progname’  instance  to  run  under  the
              current user id (UID) before performing any further action

       -d delay
              Wait  for  a  given  delay  (in  seconds)  before performing any
              further action

       -e editor
              Use an alternate editor for configuring the desklets;  it  needs
              to  be  a  standalone  executable  that  does  not need a pseudo

              Kill all running, registered desklets

              Remove all dead  entries  from  $HOME/.adesklets  (this  implies

       -i,--installer Invoke the desklet installer (requires Python)

       -f script
              Execute command set from the ‘script’ file

       If  no  ‘string_id’  is given, adesklets acts as a launcher (unless the
       ‘-f’ switch is involved). Otherwise, adesklets acts as an  interpreter,
       if no ‘-k’ or ‘-c’ switch is used.

       The most usual invokation of adesklets is the bare ‘adesklets’ command,
       without arguments: it makes adesklets launch every registered  desklets
       from $HOME/.adesklets, without any fake root window detection.
