Everything seems to work as is. I am not sure if this is just a case of "there is more than one way to skin a cat" or if you have a good reason for not calling the application from .xinitrc

The difference will be that my way Gdesklets will only run in IceWM. Your way, it will run regardless of WM. I don't use anything but IceWM so I avoid playing with the X startup as much as possible, that's all.

Hello all,

All I can say is thanks and WOW, this is too cool.

I have the weather with MU's fix, calendar,clock, and side candy disk info running.

I would like to get the deskletradar going, but no luck so far. I put the url I use for the weather radar on my windoze box. I get "No control could be found for interface Iradar: 34ytru29kyaim0rutvafas1s-2" or something close. Anybody know what this means? Also, what do you put in the "Set base directory path" box?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Chris.

If you have not looked at the tux clocks desklet you are missing a funny piece of work. Lot of work and very nice, but not for everybody.

I like good weather and with the fix it works great.

But, with my desktop it was a little wide.

I then found Good Weather Mod-Small. The file is Good Weather-White.tar.gz. It works just like the full size one, including the fix, except there is three rather than 4 days shown and the days are a separate display under the current display.

Had a heck of a time finding a good download link. Here it is, enjoy. I tried to attach the file but no go, sorry. What is procedure, allowed exts and sizes shows 0 bytes???

P.S. Not to be a pita, but nobody knows how to get radar working? Bummer. Thanks, Chris.

Hello all.
I am using this for my desklet clock.

Would one of you talented and generous posters please make a mod for me? There is a roundish, light area between about 11 and 3 on the clock face. I think it is supposed to be glare or something.

It looks a little off when used with the fury background. I would be most grateful if that glare could be removed so clock face is even colored. The light area in the bezel in that area, like the one between about 9 and 7 is fine.

Thanks in advance, Chris.

WOW, you "guys" are the best, and quick too.

Thanks for the clocks. I am with Aitch, like 6 the best, but might have to use 5 since it looks like the fury b'ground I am using.

Thanks again, Chris.

Great, thanks for these nice skins Smile

HowTo use the new Clock-Skins:

save the pictures in:
/root/.gdesklets/Displays/clock-desklet-0.50/gfx

Edit:
/root/.gdesklets/Displays/clock-desklet-0.50/clock.display

From:
Code:
      <enum label="Face:" bind="clockface" help="What the clock looks like.">
        <item label="Plain" value="clock.png"/>
        <item label="gDesklets" value="gdclock.png"/>
        <item label="Royal Air Force" value="rafclock.png"/>
        <item label="GNOME" value="gnomeclock.png"/>
        <item label="OS-X" value="osXclock.png"/>
        <item label="Grandpa's pocket watch" value="pocketwatch.png"/>
      </enum>

to:
Code:
      <enum label="Face:" bind="clockface" help="What the clock looks like.">
        <item label="Plain" value="clock.png"/>
        <item label="gDesklets" value="gdclock.png"/>
        <item label="Royal Air Force" value="rafclock.png"/>
        <item label="GNOME" value="gnomeclock.png"/>
        <item label="OS-X" value="osXclock.png"/>
        <item label="Grandpa's pocket watch" value="pocketwatch.png"/>
        <item label="clock1" value="clock1.png"/>
        <item label="clock2" value="clock2.png"/>
        <item label="clock3" value="clock3.png"/>
        <item label="clock4" value="clock4.png"/>
        <item label="clock5" value="clock5.png"/>
        <item label="clock6" value="clock6.png"/>
        <item label="clock7" value="clock7.png"/>
        <item label="fx" value="fx.png"/>

      </enum>


To change the color of the Clock-hands:
from:
Code:
    HAND_HOUR = "<path d='M-1 8 L-1.5 -20 L1.5 -20 L1 8Z' " \
                "      style='stroke:none;fill:black' " \
                "      transform='rotate(%f)'/>"

    HAND_MINUTE = "<path d='M-1 10 L-1.5 -28 L1.5 -28 L1 10Z' " \
                "      style='stroke:none;fill:black' " \
                "      transform='rotate(%f)'/>"

to:
Code:
    HAND_HOUR = "<path d='M-1 8 L-1.5 -20 L1.5 -20 L1 8Z' " \
                "      style='stroke:none;fill:#666666' " \
                "      transform='rotate(%f)'/>"

    HAND_MINUTE = "<path d='M-1 10 L-1.5 -28 L1.5 -28 L1 10Z' " \
                "      style='stroke:none;fill:#666666' " \
                "      transform='rotate(%f)'/>"


So I replaced "black" with a grey color in HTML-syntax: "#666666".
Save, and right-click the clock - restart desklet.
Right-click again, and you find the skins in the clock's preferences.

Mark

ttuuxxx,

Thanks for the great faces and the #7 is really cool.

MU,

Thanks for the instructions, I must have learned something, I actually figured it out before I saw them here. I did not try it with the new clock faces, but if you right click on the desklet and select configure desklet, besides selecting the clock face, you can also select the shape and color of the hands.

For the hour and minute hands I selected a blue from someplace on the fury background. For the second hand I selected the color from Tux's feet. The blue in clock6 looks right at home in fury. Very nice.

Thanks, Chris.

Hello all,

Never done this before, hope it works.

I usually have the taskbar hidden and have to have it at the top because I have not found any way on the forums to persistently move it up from the bottom enough to clear the taskbar.

When the taskbar is hidden and you open something as text, the top of the text box goes to the top of the desktop. If the taskbar opens, you now cannot get to the +/-/Close buttons because they are under the taskbar. If you have the taskbar not hidden and open something as text it's top only goes up to the bottom of the taskbar.

Anybody know how to make puppy think the taskbar is always not hidden to control the upper most top position for windows?
