Catch of the Day: Wanda the Fish Indicator-Applet

When GNOME transitioned to its shiny new GNOME 3 desktop the ‘GNOME Applets’ of previous releases were lost.

Some of those applets were handy (‘CPU’) and some were frankly useless (‘Eyes’). But amongst them was a fan-favourite: Wanda the fish.

This animated fish could be added to a desktop panel. Clicking on her would reveal astute quotes of indubitable insight or wit.

Miss her? Well you need not carp on about it anymore: Dylan McCall has packaged Wanda up into an indicator-applet, giving you the oppor-tuna-ty to plaice her back on your desktop.

I’ll stop with the puns now ;)
