    2) How do I get that RSS feed (please dont say conky because I cant get my head round it!!) It is conky, and you can find the configuration file in his signature block.

    3) Are they Eikon icons? They certainly look like Eikon icons.


    Thanks mate.

    I hope that helps!

    1. I am using xfce4-panel with it's pager plugin but last I checked, you could go into gnome-panel's pager applet's preferences by right-clicking on it and choose to, "show workspace labels", or something to that effect.

    2. Yeah, it's conky. In my sig, there's one by the name 'conkyrsstemplate' which if you open with a text editor and scroll down, has something like the following:

    ###FEED 1 URL### ###FEED 2 URL###
    ###FEED 1 URL### ###FEED 2 URL###

    Just replace the hashes and hash'd text with the URL of the feeds you want. Adjusting the rssbar for different screen resolutions is a tad more difficult, however.

    As for conky being a tad abstract, keep playing around with it. I found it daunting as well but after trying screenlets as discovering one bloodly desktop applet could use > 10mb of RAM, I went back and forced myself to learn & love conky (and it's 1mb-per-instance footprint).

    3. Yes, Eikon2, with a black folder mod by (I think) Sand and Mercury.



    And Giant Speck: now that I've got a monitor with a decent contrast ratio, changing the murrine gradients and highlights was less an optional endeavour and more a measure to save my eyes. Oy vey. I almost feel guilty for subjecting people to my older screenshots.

    Thanks guys for all the info. I know it seems a little 'lame', but I'm trying to understand how conky runs, autostarts, how to configure, etc...but it's doing my head in.

    If anyone has any free time on thier hands, and might feel like helping walk me through it, I would be very please to hear from you.

    My details are:

    msn - mbeecham@hotmail.com
    icq - 95178345
    yahoo - ten_talents
    aim - thebeechamfamily

    Again, I know it sounds lame, but I would be more than grateful to hear from you.






    Mike

    Fluxbox theme is called "Royalty". GTK theme is vorta. Wallpaper is called "wallpaper.jpg" (lol??).

    Two conkies as the bottom display time, load and cpu. When mpd is playing music, 3 more conkies and 3 music control icons appear at the top.

    Desktop & filer is Rox. Dock is rox plus some scripts of mine.
