OS X 10.8 install nixes widget mondo solitare

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.

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

Two years after the problem was posted, but what the hey, better late the never they say.
