i was just asking to see if the screenlet can become even better, i can't think of any (worthy of code modificications) shapes.

by the way , a rather stupid question : "cpu0" and "cpu1" are the cores separately and "cpu" both of them together, right? - Apr 21 2010

Dropbox Screenlet

Conky by spitfire23bc 34 comments

i thought it would be rather useful for the screenlet to be able to show the last x (eg : 10) items that were changed on dropbox, like the right click/recently changed files does on the panel icon.
also, if possible, whether they were changed on this computer, or their size. - Apr 16 2010
not bad at all, it's time for now playing to return to my desktop :) - Apr 10 2010

by the way, is there any way to make google translate not return the results if they are of the same languange as the first text?
or make it possible to have just google translate running? (so i can i have a second lyrics screenlet i will quit/start whenever i want to listen to non-english songs) - Mar 06 2010

i don't know if people started adding Indica lyrics lately or if the last release added some rather cool source of lyrics, but i get at least half as many "lyrics not found" now

what about nothing happening with Japanese symbols though? direct Google translate can give a translation - the screenlet just avoids them (symbols are not written a second time, only latin letters are) - Feb 15 2010

Conky by dencer 339 comments

just tried it with a japanese song and i'm getting only the japanese symbols. the translator only seems to work when the lyrics are written in latin letters (but then it just writes them a second time with a different font, since google translate probably can't understand romanji) - Feb 15 2010

the filtering is off, i always have it off in order to see the Japanese lyrics, what i meant was that lyrics don't appear Only when the translator is on. they appear as they should when it is off. - Jan 23 2010
Lyrics screenlet

Conky by dencer 339 comments

i have the python-simplejson package installed.
i investigated a little more on the problem and it is more accurate to say it like this :

1. japanese songs don't get lyrics when the translator is on, even if the get if it off (japanese to english translation - i don't know if this matters at all)
2. English songs get lyrics when the translator is on , but the do so in the middle of the song. (english to greek translation)
here you can get the output of the japanese song in the terminal

having google translate on made all songs show no lyrics at all

if i can help with any info (run it in terminal and search for something etc) tell me :)

another problem is that it keeps changing place on my desktop every time a song ends :S

good work on the fading of the lyrics by the way :) - Jan 21 2010

Conky by dencer 339 comments

i don't know whether this is as simple as it sounds - i am not a programmer (yet, at least).

what i thought was whether it is easy enough to include a button that will make use of the "detect language" of google translate and get a translation instead of the original lyrics when asked.
(since there are already some applications using google translate, i thought it wouldn't be difficult , is there any way you can include such a feature? it would be REALLY good) - Dec 01 2009
