Today is my request day, though 🙂
Up to another user request for screensaver, showing the weather forecast for the current city,
I decided to run and that request. So here it’s first appearing!
IMPORTANT: The current weather is set to Burgas, Bulgaria, so if you want to change it
go to http://www.rssweather.com/dir find your city and copy and paste the RSS URL into
/usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather like root!
sudo gedit /usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather and replace the RSS URL with your one!
Also by adding my repository: sudo apt-get install weather-gl
PS: I’ll be glad if someone tell me how to make the degree sign ° look normal 🙂
Today as i was reading my feeds i got into the question of the user Honza Pokorny about some clock screensavers for Linux Desktop. So i decided to modify a bit the file GLText coming with the package xscreensaver-gl and here is the result: some simple digital clock screensavers.
sudo apt-get install simple-clock-gl
or you can DOWNLOAD it to your desktop without touching your sources.list and then test it
There are few in this package, as anyone can modify gltext.desktop file to his needs. And as anyone loves screenshots here are they:
simple clock, colored, with simple date, with full date, and wired.
If you want to modify it and make your version, just edit the file
by changing “%X” at line #6 to something else like
Exec=gltext -root -front -text ‘your text here\n %l:%M:%S %p’
You can find more at XScreenSaver manual
Exec=gltext -root -text “%X” -no-spin
OK, you know very well about DanRabbit and his great project elementaryOS and about the description of his icons, that says, that the icons doesn’t work with dark panels. That’s was the past. You can already find elementary dark monos into that icon suite and now he is working on a dark panel for elementaryOS – something most of you wanted for a long time!
Here what Dans is saying about “I’ve been working on a new set of monos for Dark panels as well as the styling for this sexy new dark panel in eGTK. Figured I should tease you a bit :)”
A new release of the popular elementary theme version 1.2 has been released. Now with adding improved support for Nautilus-Elementary, a revised style for the Midori web browser and some new look minimal scroll bars.
The theme also sees notable speed improvements & bug fixes.
The latest and greatest release of the Elementary GTK will be available via the Elementary PPA very shortly. In the mean time if you’re dying to play with the new scrollbars you can download the theme here http://danrabbit.deviantart.com/art/elementary-gtk-theme-83104033
Note that elementary uses and requires three theme engines: Murrine, Aurora, and Equinox. Aurora and Murrine are pre-installed in Ubuntu, but Equinox, can be installed via the Elementary PPA.
