    I installed Open Home this week on my Hero running 1.5.

    I can't seem to put any of the stock widgets on my Open Home screens.

    Maybe I'm doing something very stupid, which wouldn't surprise me, but is it possible to use the stock calendar or music widgets?

    Thanks in advance
    Al

    You can only use HTC's widgets with a Sense UI. If you use a home replacement, then you're stuck with stock Android and third-party widgets.

    If you really want to keep using Open Home but also use widgets that are kind of HTC lookalikes, you can always try Beautiful Widgets or Weather Widget Donate for the clock/weather, Pure Calendar for the calendar, and Pure Music. Advantage: all these widgets, unlike HTC's, are skinnable so you can match them to your current wallpaper/theme.

    Thanks again, I've downloaded a few that will do the trick & the look great. I'm only stuck on two, a mobile network icon or widget and a Twitter widget that's similar to the stock Peep one.

    Cheers Al
