Under gnome-base/gnome-applets-2.28.0, the Sticky Notes applet that can be added to the Gnome Panel crashes with a "Quit Unexpectedly -- Reload/Don't Reload" error dialog box when creating a new note. This is fixed by the patch given in this git commit:
I took only that patch and used it to make my own ebuild of gnome-applets, which I installed. Now Sticky Notes Works For Me :^)
I'll attach my ebuild and the patch I used. HTH.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge gnome-base/gnome-applets-2.28.0 along with the Gnome desktop environment.
2. Add the Sticky Notes applet to the Gnome panel.
3. Right-click the Sticky Notes icon and select New Note.
4. Applet crashes with "Quit Unexpectedly -- Reload/Don't Reload" error dialog box.
