Hey micko, Like your desktop, I noticed you have 2 shortcuts with ".desktop" attached to the icon name, To get rid of that, Just right click on the icon and select "Edit item" then delete or rename it Smile
in the box labeled
"The text displayed under the icon is"

Done and done! Thanks. But the real accolades go to Zigbert (and of course yourself Laughing ) for my desktop. And also must mention Hairy Will, WhoDo and disciple.

Have you configured the fonts for Pwidgets? It uses 'monotone' as default. With this font spacing in calender will be correct, and alignments of the different widgets becomes correct.

Could it be that my package didn't install the font correct?

A very nice desktop Exclamation

No, I did nothing. Didn't even notice! lol. Was so wrapped up in analog clock that all else blew by!

If you look at your first screenshot in this thread, everything is ok.

/usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/MONOFONT.TTF is the one you need.
Something must have gone wild during your second install of Pwidgets.

You can either try to install another time, or just copy this font from the pet package.
If you rename pwidgets-0.1.pet to pwidgets-0.1.pet.tar.gz you can just click on it and xarchive will open it.

With the best widget greetings
Sigmund

Bonjour,
Very nice tool indeed.
But calender is a bit bizarre. The first week is only six days. And the 1st is thursday when the 2nd is sunday.
What did I do wrong?
Version 4.11.

Sorry guys, my fault!

You must run these 2 commands in terminal to update installed fonts:
mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF
mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF

Hope this solves it.
Please give feedback.


Sigmund

What about a weather widget?

I have coded a very easy script (but I'm not good on scripting Smile ):

Code:

grep `curl -s "http://rss.accuweather.com/rss/liveweather_rss.asp?metric=1&locCode=EUR|ES|SP013|Madrid"|grep -A2 'description>Currently'|grep gif|sed 's/\// /g'|sed 's/_/ /g'|awk {'print $8'}` /root/scripts/format.txt|awk '{print $2}'


It downloads the weather from the rss of accuweather (in this case for Madrid), and translates into a weather.ttf letter, using format.txt:
Code:

01        a
02        b
03        c
04        c
05        b
06        c
07        d
08        e
11        v
12        g
13        g
14        g

23        k
24        x
25        k
26        k               
30        z
31        x
32        w
33        O
34        l
35        m

The result, in the image.

Thank you, it works well now. I had to restart X.

Pwidgets works great, its really nice.

Two little problems though.
1) in my puppy 4 install it takes a long time for the transparency to work. It will start with dark boxes (displaying information) then slowly each box will turn transparent but sometimes only if I open a full screen app like seamonkey.

2) in the latest macpup, the windows overlap badly and are out of alignment. Is this due to the bar at the top of the screen?

fantastic work Smile

It would be great with a weather widget. Cool
Would you kindly explain in detail what I need. please post everything. conkyrc, script, font, ...


headfound
1) in /usr/sbin/fixwidgets there is a 'sleep 2'. Please increase this, and see what happens. Do you have a low-powered system?

2) I am not thinking of support of other systems than official Puppy. - Sorry.


Sigmund

Quick question, I managed to change all the colours I wanted except the hands of the clock (the rest of the clock I painted over in mtpaint,lol). How is this done? I notice puppylvr you did it. Thx.
