:o
so i launch into dashboard last night and i see all my widgets, then BLAM, they disappear!
so i get out of dashboard, and go back into it.. they're still gone!
so i try to drag a widget from the panel onto the screen to "enable" it. it makes the lovely water ripples then disappears straight away! No widgets will come onto my screen!
the manage widgets button does nothing
i've tried a restart, makes no change
i've tried all the widgets including original apple ones
i haven't installed any new software lately

whiskey tango foxtrot is going on :angry: :angry:

I'd check if the same thing is happening for other users...
If not, repair permissions and try again.
Then try deleting ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist and try again.
