Subject description: simple python ruler
 

I came across this simple python script for a on screen ruler, should be handy for aligning things.
works quite well, pressing H or V on the keyboard will turn the ruler horizontal or vertical, can also be re-sized with the mouse.

You need python installed to use this app.

edit: Reduced the width of the ruler, image shows two rulers the top one is undecorated, to close pyruler press "q" to quit.

Hello Geoffrey,

very nice tool. I have downloaded and i will use it. What do you think about to add a right-click option, just to load and save positions and sizes of the rulers?

Edit: and please tell me, how can i make attached pictures shown like yours and not attached to download. Please...

Hi RSH,

How to insert the image, the image I have is on my dropbox online storage and it is just a link added like this " [img]http://image_url[/img] " without the quotes.

Though don't make the picture to large as not everyone will be able to view it, the one in my post is only 700px × 438px

As for the Python script ruler it is just something I found online, I have tried changing a few things with it but what ya see is what ya get.

I just thought it would be handy to align things not really meant to be permanent.

if you want to add a icon on the task-bar for it so it's accessible at all times then edit fbpanel configuration to look like this.

I'm assuming you are using openbox with fbpanel.
