Very nice - though I do find that Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark still has the edge (window borders more compact) I do like the lower contrast in this theme. - Jan 05 2018

Very nice - works well with more transparent background too (I like to superimpose on the background) with those lovely hands. - Jul 21 2015

Have a go with audacious maybe:

${if_running audacious2}${goto 25}${font dejavu:bold:size=10}${goto 25}${scroll 12 ${exec audtool2 --current-song}}${alignr} ${color white}${exec audtool current-song-output-length}/${exec audtool current-song-length}${color }${goto 25}
${goto 23}${execbar expr 100 \* $(audtool --current-song-output-length-seconds) \/ $(audtool --current-song-length-seconds)}${else}
${goto 23}${color1}${hr}${color }
${goto 26}${font dejavu:bold:size=7}${execi 60 fortune -s | fold -w45}
${color1}${hr}${endif}

If you close Audacious, then you'll get a fortune cookie instead. - Nov 15 2010
#mpd
mpd_host localhost
mpd_port 6600

Are you using MPD? If not then just comment out these lines in the script. If you are, then search to find out how to 'set up conky mpd'.

If you can't work it out, then delete those three lines and do it again. - Nov 15 2010

Thanks - I appreciate the effort on your part. I'm sure you'll get a lot more hits now.

I realise I could have downloaded the files individually but it's normal to get a tar.gz file. - Aug 02 2010
Sorry, the download link opens the listing page, it does not download the package. - Aug 02 2010

Would it bug you if I made it available for millions of people and excluded you because I prefer a download method you can't use? - Apr 28 2010

I'm just pulling your plonker. I don't like it, but there's nothing wrong with it for people who do :) - Dec 30 2009
They are warehouses, they have no windows. We open windows to view the warehouse on our gnome desktops in our browsers.

Very funny indeed - and a very ugly wallpaper. Might look good on a Microsoft desktop. - Dec 25 2009

Windows Aero interface uses compositing which doesn't look the same as compiz compositing. Copies of Windows Aero themes look okay in screenshots, but on screen they look like very cheap copies - sorry. The same goes for many Apple themes - but most of these are solid and don't look too bad. - Dec 25 2009

Well I'd agree it's large, though it's not a problem I'd like to be allowed to shrink it.

The other thing I'd like to be able to do is to install it as the default system cursor...

compiz creates errors, and sometimes the only way to get it to show is to do metacity --replace. It seems the cursors aren't loved by compiz!

can you advise how to set this so it works every time? - Dec 02 2009

Instead of first opening a terminal, and then typing in a command, and then using the mouse to navigate - why not just do this?

To install: launch (Alt+F2)
gksu nautilus /usr/share/sounds

(If you use a terminal, then you would open a terminal and type 'sudo mv xxxx /usr/share/sounds').

Honestly, you look like you use Windows!! - Nov 26 2009

Sorry, I missed the point - it seems to be lacking any enigma or interest - a pointless, unfunny, and uninteresting paper.

Why not replace with the text 'black spots' - Nov 24 2009
