    I have leopard 10.5.1

    I just noticed that some of my most used dashboard widgets do not function at all.
    I just cannot click on them. I can see them but that's all. Of course I cannot use them.

    I do not know if this is a bug, or incompatibility with leopard.
    Is it something else?

    I looked at some sites that host some of these widgets but I did not found any leopard information.

    Why I cannot use some of my dashboard widgets?

    Are they widgets you installed yourself, or ones that came with Leopard? If you installed them yourself, they may not be Leopard-compatible. If they came with Leopard, or the widgets ARE Leopard-compatible but just not functioning, give the DashboardClient process a kick by issuing the following command from the Terminal:
    killall -HUP DashboardClient
    Bring Dashboard up again for the change to take effect.
