A lot of skins in that pack. Some are very nice.

Just wanted to write a small tutorial on making Pwidgets sidebars. I discovered how to last night, and while this may have been said before I felt it could be said again for the newbies. I used gimp to make a canvas 220x768. This will be different depending on the resolution you use, but I am at 1024x768. So there fore just change the height according to your setting. All the bars have to be 220 in width. Now comes the fun part. If you just want a nice shading design or something it can be as small as 220x1, then pwidgets will just repeat it the entire length. Or if you want some sort of picture (such as the one it attached) then just make sure its 220x768, and everything looks alright.

The only reason I wanted to get this out in the forum was that I hadn't seen any one speak about it, and Its a lot easier than I thought it would be. I saw the images of sidebars that were shipped with Pwidgets, but I thought there was a special process to it. Nope its just has to be 220x(height) . Very easy!!!!

Hi all, I recently upgraded my pwidgets to 2.2.3 and I like how things are looking on my desktop.

However, I have a problem: You mentioned putting new clock skins into the /root/.pwidgets/clock_skins (or whatever the exact directory was) or using the /root/.pwidgets/themes for templates to make one's own personalized sidebar, clock, calendar, etc. etc. The problem for me is that my /.pwidgets has only four directories: misc, profiles, temp, and widgets. When I click on the "Misc" folder, the only file is my current analog clock skin. The other folders have various things in them, but I don't see the list of skins I know are there because pwidgets allows me to choose and load them. Any suggestions of how to find these other clock skins or where to save new skins I like?

I really really like the pocket-watch skin posted by Joel! I plan to work on something similar, but need to figure out this above-mentioned problem first.

Thanks for any help!

Ahh kevin-dell1100,

The clock skin directory has moved since Pwidgets 2.2x, neglected to mention that.. sorry!

The directory you need now is /usr/local/pwidgets/widgets/clock_skins.

Actually, I might even write a simple app to make installing clockskins super easy for Pwidgets.

Cheers

Ok I made it...

Pwidgets-Clockinstaller

It is a simple GUI to install any .png clock skin into Pwidgets. Just open the app , open a rox window where you saved the clock skin (doesn't matter where) and drag the clock skin to the box.. what could be simpler? There is a menu entry in Desktop or you can start from a command with "pwidgets-clockinstaller".

NOTE: Only supports Pwidgets-2.2X and later, if someone wants to hack it for older Pwidgets, be my guest. I do not plan to add features, someone might like to make a sidebar installer, the code would be very similar. I do not plan to support this app, unless there is a bug I missed somewhere.

Have fun!

Cheers

01micko, thanks so much for the .pet file to install new clock skins! I mostly just wanted the pocketwatch, but we'll see if I choose other ones later.

I'd show you all my desktop, but I haven't figured out how to use my "print screen" button. Maybe need to configure something differently.

Anyway, you'll just have to take my word for it that my desktop is looking pretty awesome.

Thanks again!

check the menu.. Graphic>mtpaint snapshot

save your shot , resize to 600 wide and upload to forum, or leave big and post to your website (or another host) and link to it in "My Puppy is more gorgeous than yours" thread Wink Laughing

Cheers

How do you make a transparent background for your clocks? For graphics-editing programs, I have: mtPaint and InkLite. Maybe there's a different application someone can suggest? Or am I missing something in these programs?

Also, how does one change the font for icons?

Gimp is the program you need, it is basically a generic Adobe Photoshop. In there you can change the opacity under "Dialogs->Layers" theres a slider bar to do so, 80ish is usually a good setting.

And which icons do you mean? The ones on the desktop or in a window? Those are controlled by ROX-Filer, go into a window right click on the white, empty part and go to options. This has all the options for ROX-Filer there and then you can change all that stuff. I dont know if you can change the font though. I never tried.

Hi guys

Here are some clocks I extracted from a KDE SuperKaramba clock package (SuperKaramba is the widget engine used in KDE3)

Personally, I think they need some tweaking in the Gimp. Wink

Also added another I found and tweaked. (The clear one, looks good on dark background with white hands)
