Details says:

"September the 8th, 2010: adesklets is now officially dead.

This project has been mostly inactive since 2007, and it's now time to kill it. Things has been fine for a few years, but changes in the various systems it runs on (in libraries, compilation toolchains and architectures) are catching up, and supporting adesklets has become quite a burden for many downstream maintainers.

This site and all associated resources will stay available for a while, then will be put offline, probably by the end of 2010. Therefore, all Linux distributions and BSDs currently supporting adesklets are advised that they should probably drop it, or fork it right away."

Adesklets has since been dropped from debian, ubuntu etc.
This task depends upon
