Disappearing Dashboard...

Hey guys.

I upgraded to leopard the day it came out and I've had no problems until now.

I booted up today and when I opened dashboard, all my widgets were gone.

I try to re-add them, and dashboard simply closes and doesn't add anything.

Ideas?

come to think of it I had just chosen to sync my widgets to .mac...

I unchecked that one and it's still not accepting them back on.

are you still having this problem or do you have a fix?

in case anyone comes across this problem themselves I found a fix-

I created a new user on my mbp. widgets were working on this one. so I put in my .mac info and synced the.mac dashboard to that one. then logged into mine and synced it there.

bam.

widgets have returned.

I'm having the same problem with a missing dashboard/ widgets but don't have .Mac to sync with. Any other ideas? I've tried adding new widgets, creating new ones... nothing.

sounds like your problem may be a little different, as I'm almost positive mine was cause by .mac.

have you gone through all the generic deleting preference files and rebooting and repairing permissions?
