Gnome Do on Fedora 15

I tried to install Gnome Do on my new Fedora 15 installation, and everything went smooth at first.  But, the problem comes when you try to use it.

These are the two packages I installed:
gnome-do-0.8.3.1

And, for the plugins:
gnome-do-plugins-0.8.2-1

So, I tried to launch it from the command line.  I receive a number of these errors:

[Error 12:31:11.906] Could not load desktop item: libgnome-desktop-2.so.17

Then, when I tried to open the preferences, it crashed with this error:


Marshaling activate signal
Exception in Gtk# callback delegate
  Note: Applications can use GLib.ExceptionManager.UnhandledException to handle the exception.

The solution was to install the gnome-desktop-2 package.

gnome-desktop-2.32.0

I may still need to tweak the shortcut key, but that at least solves the crash.
