Very Happy Hello,
@musher0,
Cosmo doesnt do anything to your right click menu, your taskbar, or WM menu..
It just replaces, or adds to, your desktop icons.. Its just gtkdialog and conky...

Very Happy Hello,
Yes, that is what inspired me...
But I wasnt happy with just a conky display, it had to be interactive, to be "clickable", and it had to have the slideshow function... Cool
BTW, this isnt finished by a long way, I just had to deal with "life", that stuff that interrupts our fun time...
The slideshow is done Very Happy , the resolution adjuster is almost done.. Embarassed
Still testing various WM`s and DE`s like xfce and compiz and enlightenment etc..
Many offshoots from this will appear, like a really cool Star Trek thing I have going, and a slideshow widget...
If only there were 12 days in a week, or 36 hr days... LOL

Looks good combined with Win8 Cursor Theme, XFWM Theme and GTK Theme..

Modified the script a little bit to change the applications like ROX to Thunar and btw I found a weird bug concerning the XFCE window manager
w/ compositing enabled. When I quit CosmoUI the screen gets filled with a solid color and I need to restart XFWM4 so the screen gets redrawn.
I don't know if others experience the same. I'm on Slacko 5.4 and Slacko 5.3.3

Anyways, Thanks Very Happy

Very Happy Hello,
Ironically, I`m running it ATM in Xfce4.


Now I`m scared to shut it off.. Shocked
Very Happy Naw, but I`m in Compiz so I wonder if that affects it, cause it dies fine for me.. Before I shut it off this time, I will enable everything I can think of, but Cairo-dock controls my composite stuff, so I will try changing it to Xfce and Compiz, and see if I can get it to happen..

When 'real life' allows, I have an update which allow the slideshow in the center above... But there is a Lua based Conky which allows 'clicks'.. Shocked
I have not got it to work for me yet, but have had little Puppy Time of late.. Crying or Very sad
But when I get it working, oh man, the possibilities......

I know our Forum Master, he who makes all this possible, is well versed in Lua... Maybe he could have a look???

Just a couple of suggestions to help with maintaining this:
1 Use xwininfo or xdpyinfo to get the screen dimensions and
2 use that to generate the icons programatically using svg.
3 split out the dependencies into separate packages.

Here is one of my svg generator tools that may be useful:

You can also do things like bar graphs and charts with svg and you can set gtkdialog to autorefresh the images on change (for cpu, temp, battery etc...)... thus eliminating the need for conky
