    Desktop Bible verse

    I am wondering if there is any desktop Bible program that will display random verses that work on Ubuntu 12.04?

    Re: Desktop Bible verse

    Hi I wrote a program in Python to show Bible verses from the KJV 1611 Authorized and at any reading speed, background color, and font color. By reading speed I mean you add to the command line your reading speed in WPM and it will show the verses accordingly. I can also set this up easily to make the verses available for desktop via conky. Problem with the conky approach though is wordwrap (none). So not good for long verses. If anyone's interested I can send it along. Only needs 'sudo apt-get install python-tk'. Here's a sceenshot:

    Well this program runs w/o the need of conky. It's a standalone Python script.

    In a terminal, do the sudo apt-get install python-tk to get Python and Tk installed, so my program will be able to run. Also provide me with your email address and I'll email you the program tonight when I get home from work.

    Thanks for the feedback guys but lets keep our threads on topic and if you would like to discuss your custom programs on these forums lets make it transparent and start a new thread and make available to all. If it is a program that the community really enjoys we can discuss getting it into the UCE repos!!
