I'm running 10.4.1 on a G3 iBook, with a case-sensitive HFS+ filesystem. Some 3rd party widgets just don't run. When you open them from Finder, nothing happens; when you try to add them using the Dashboard panel, it just goes "beep."

Here is a partial list of what hasn't worked, so far:
iRate 1.2
SlothCam 2.2
NIXManual

Some widgets do work.. for instance:
Album Art
iCal Events
Geek Image
SysStat
FormulaCalc

So what's up with the ones that don't work? Anyone else seeing this problem? It could have something to do with the filesystem case sensitivity, but there are no error messages to help.

Why, thank you! That was exactly the problem with SlothCam and iRate. I will email the authors to let them know.
