Circlette Status

Posted in System by mtnfvr 2919 days ago

Simple status: Time, Day, Date, Month, Temp, Condition, and Bowtie for song status.

I use GtWthr so it is easily modifiable to your location (GtWthr is awesome BTW).

Thanks to mercury52 for the starting points:

You can download the files here.

[Admin Note: I've also attached all the geeklets below. Note that you will need to open cirImg.glet three times, and then adjust the path in GeekTool to point towards wherever you save the circle.png image. Also, after a bit of searching, I found the Bowtie theme, it's called Neon.]

What you've done looks great. However I cannot seem to run .glet for some reason geek tool says it cannot run this file type. I've made sure its not .glet.txt or anything like that. Any help?

glet files need to be set to open with "GeekTool Helper" instead of GeekTool. This should be automatic if you just double-click them. If that doesn't work:

1. Make sure you have updated to the latest GeekTool (via Mac App Store or [here](http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/download.php))

2. Right-click on a .glet file and choose "Get Info"

3. Under "Open With" in the Get Info window, choose "Other"

4. Press `Command-Shift-G` on your keyboard

5. A "Go to folder" box should appear, copy/paste in:


6. GeekTool Helper should be in that folder. Click it.

7. Also click the "Change All" button in the Get Info window.

1. Get Bowtie

2. Get the [Neon theme](http://zb3k.deviantart.com/art/Neon-bowtie-theme-v1-1-166603914).

Okay, I hope you can help me with this problem.

I recently used the desert theme thing.. where I created a part of the desert sand on top of the desktop.. to get that feeling where the clock numbers are behind the sand.

Now.. I want my Bowtie circlet to be at the bottum left of the screen.. but its appearing "behind" the sands.. How can I fix this?

Perhaps I could start bowtie thing in GeekTool? I could then make it on top of the sands.. but how do I start the bow tie app through GeekTool ? :/

The Neon Bowtie theme is awesome! Only drawback is that you cannot drag Neon around on the desktop, it has a fixed position. Sucks!

:( I love the way this looks, am even considering buying the bowtie thingy, however Gtwthr no longer works. I am having a hard time, just finding the numbers. But ill probably use it an leave out the weather one. Looks great! Thanks for sharing. Will look great on my Tron desktop!
