Son of Man Theme

Posted in Collections by gradientShift 1144 days ago

I've made a Dubstep Theme since this one if you care to look.

Thought I would share my desktop and links to the scripts in one localized area since I've had a lot of people ask on other sites that they want this setup on their computer.

Below is what you'll be creating. Image Name

Layout

  1. Download and insert the background .jpg. You'll want this added first so everything lays on top.

  2. Insert all the geeklets and position as you wish.

  3. Download and insert the .png. You'll add this last so it will overlay on the other geeklets. (Hint - you can aways change the layering of your geeklets by right-clicking on them and choosing send back/forward)

Geeklets

I got all of my geeklets from this site so the links to the different scripts are below. I attached the scripts for download only to make it easy for you to simply open the .glet so all the formatting is ready to go.

There are two geeklets that require additional steps in getting them running. One is the iTunes Current Song which you'll need to go to the link above and download the file that will need to be placed somewhere on your computer so the geeklet can access it.

The other is the GtWthr geeklet which you'll need to go to http://www.gtwthr.com and put in your zip code to get the code you need to change the script so it will show you your areas weather instead of mine.

That's It

If you need any help setting them up just leave your questions in the comments.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

I also have another theme on here you may want to check out HERE.

Ok, so I did this, but I'm having trouble with the weather. It will show me the weather, but, if my computer goes to sleep, it will show up as "" instead of the temp. Any solutions?

Edit: Here is an example of what I was talking about: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/3/screenshot20110907at110.png/

Also, what font did you use for your current Temp?

Geeklets pertaining to weather only fetch the weather image, not temperature, conditions or any other weather information (regardless of city code used):

Make sure it isn't refreshing any less than 3600s. The weather doesn't update any less than an hour anyway. This actually did this to me a couple times as well and it was on the server end. Try opening up Geektool and click refresh all, this should update it. If all of the weather Geektlets changed to tags then it's definitely on the server. If not and it's still showing the tag then I would delete it and install it again.

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say *"Geeklets pertaining to weather only show an image".* This is not true if you use GtWthr scripts and add in your geoCode. Let me know if I read you reply wrong.

Edit: actually, I can't get weather from either GtWthr or Yahoo. Could anyone please advice? Thanks!

From an earlier attempt at GeekTools, GtWthr blocked me, so, my bad :)

Thanks for the tutorial. I like it a lot. I made a variation of it. What do you think?

This inspired me to do a couple others...... note: the wallpapers are a couple that I found on the internet a long time ago. I do not take credit for those.

If you're using the one I supplied I took at the show current date because I didn't really need it. Please refer to this [link](http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/geeklets/productivity/simple-calendar-of-the-current-month-colored-current-day-1/) to get the color back.

The quote is not a script, its just a text box.
