I've installed StackApplet but I can't link it to my askubuntu account. I have to fill two fields, "Site name" and "User id". I think that ubuntu.stackexchange is the site name and skalka my user id, but the applet keeps hanging on "Please wait...".

  • What version of StackApplet are you using? Oct 22, 2010 at 15:00

    Is this really a meta question? He's asking how to use a gnome applet that's part of the ubuntu repositories. If this was an applet that checked his twitter account or his email, this question would be perfectly on-topic on the main site, no?

    @sepp2k Ah you bring up a good point, I originally flagged it as meta as most discussion on tools to integrate with Ask Ubuntu have been on meta. Sorry! Oct 22, 2010 at 16:37

Site name is "askubuntu" or "ubuntu.stackexchange" without the ".com".

In the user id field, you're supposed to enter your numerical, unique id, not your name. So in your case 4180.
