Transparent Tiles v 1.0
A new desktop I created. this one features Time, Date, Weather, Battery, Calendar with Events, System Information, Music Controls, and even a small slideshow!
create 9 shell geeklets and apply a background color of Black at 30%.
You may also need to send these background geeklets back (send to back option via right click on geeklet)
For the Dock do the same.
Position like so in the screenshot.
Time and Date:
open time and date geeklets and position them.
open both weather image geeklets and also the weather information geeklets.
Put in your Weather.com URL in place of my custom one.
note: weather image 2 geeklet should be an empty shell. it helps fetch the weather image so it is mandatory
For the weather forecast geeklet simply place your Yahoo Weather Code instead of mine
for the 2 system information geeklets simply open and position.
for the battery open the battery geeklet and position on screen.
then open a image geeklet to show the battery image.
Calendar and Events:
for the calendar, open the geeklets and position.
note: one calendar geeklet shows the current month while the other one shows the next month.
for the Events, you will need to download icalbuddy (search on Google) then just open up the events geeklet and postion.
*note: you can edit how many events shown at one time by editing the last number after "today" (170).
For the Music Controls Turntable background, download music pic and open a image geeklet and show the pic.
You will also need Bowtie minimal theme.
Finally position those things.
For the Slideshow, create a folder of images you want to be in the slideshow.
Then create an image geeklet and edit the path to the folder. (click folder not individual pics)
note: you can choose to randomize the slideshow images if you wish
This took some time to make (and type) so I would appreciate it if you liked this post.
thanks any feedback or questions appreciated. Feel free to comment.
