    Ok, my dashboard doesn't work anymore. When I hit F12, the screen dims and the dashboard drawer button shows up, but the widgets are gone. When I open up the dashboard drawer and drag a widget back onto the screen, the ripple effect happens, but the widget doesn't show up :confused:

    This started just the other day, and I havent been able to fix it yet, so I figured I'd ask here. It happened around the time I installed the ShapeShifter demo (I think) but I deleted everything related to ShapeShifter and it didn't help anything.

    Any ideas?

    Try finding and deleting these preference files

    com.apple.dashboard.client.plist
    com.apple.dashboard.plist

    Maybe that'll get it working again.

    It is a known issue after 10.4.2 update. Just repair permissions.

    cheers
