To use a given desklet, download and extract it, see the README and follow the instructions.

From adesklets 0.5.0, you also have an adesklets_installer script to partially automate the task; see the documentation to know more.

Desklets also have their atom feed (see www.atomeenabled.org), in case you want to stay informed on new/updated desklets as soon as they are listed here.
