Re: Annoyance Re: Gnotes ?!? -- [Solved]

Hi Aaron;

Thanks for the reply.  My Fedora users maillist is running about a day
late again so I haven't received your response yet, but read it by going
directly to the archives.

Here is the series of events that caused the loss of the gnote applet.
I am responding so that if this happens to others, they have something
to try.  The short answer was, I found the applet by re-booting.

     1. I used Tomboy in F11.
     2. I upgraded from F11 => F12.
     3. Tomboy, of course, was not upgraded automatically.
     4. Gnote was not included to replace it as default because F12 was
        not a new install.
     5. I yum removed Tomboy and yum installed Gnote.
     6. The Gnote icon showed up in Panel Menu under Accessories, but
        did not show under the applets drop down menu for "Add to
     7. I screwed around trying to get the Gnote launcher onto my panel.
     8. I then wrote the above quoted post.
     9. Between then and reading Aaron's reply I re-booted for entirely
        unrelated reasons.
    10. After Aaron's suggestion, I looked again at "Add to Panel" and
        there the icon was.
    11. I added it to my panel and everything is working fine.

I hope this saves someone a bit of grief.
