In order to obtain correct data it is important that you set the
latitude and longitude correctly for your location in the properties
dialog and that the system clock is accurate. Consider using an ntp
client to set the system time if you have internet access. See
http://www.ntp.org for details about ntp.
In the properties dialog you can choose between a real and a cartoon
image of the moon. Be sure to set the correct value for the number of
frames when you select a new image file. Currently, the cartoon image
file has 12 frames and the real image file has 56.
If you're compiling and installing from a tarball and can't launch the
applet from the panel after installation, check the location of the
files glunarclock-applet-2, glunarclock.schemas and
GNOME_GLunarclockApplet_Factory.server as compared to other similar
files on your system and then try using the --prefix and --sysconfdir
options as described in the 'INSTALL' file. For example, you might
want to configure like this:
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --libexecdir=/usr/lib/gnome-panel
Installing to the default of /usr/local usually makes it so that GNOME
can't properly load the glunarclock applet.
