Dashboard opens but mondo solitaire widget is blank green rectangle. Also, mondo solitaire does not appear in current Apple widget website. I seem to have lost a friend.

I have registered to reply to this problem.

I too had the same problem after upgrading to ML this day. The fix is to click on the i symbol bottom right hand corner of the green panel - you will need to move your cursor over that area for the symbol to show up. then in the Games drop down menu choose a different game, click Done. Now repeat the process but this time choose the game you want. The game we had problems with was Klondike game (2).

Hope this helps.

FineWine,

I can't believe you registered on this site just to respond to my problem. I'm certainly glad you did.. your answer was perfect. I have my friend back and have you to thank!

turns out that OS X 10.8+ has an issue with a space in the directory name.
when you download mondosolitarie.wdgt.zip unzips into
"mondo solitaire.wdgt" - directory with a space in it

Just remove that space, e.g. -> mondo.wdgt or mondosolitaire.wdgt
and then install the widget - default game will be selected. Also selects for table, card, and card backs will be again available.

Enjoy

OS X 10.9
