Hi Frank..

You need to install a package called Screenlets.

It should be in your distro's package manager. For ubuntu, load Synaptic and search for Screenlets. Install that package.

Or, you could have a look at I think they have packages linked from the website or source if you want it. - Jan 15 2009

Hi Matthew, thanks for your comments.
Sorry it took so long to reply! I don't tend to check here very much, as I haven't figured out how to get notifications via email of new posts.

I've taken your suggestions. Thanks for your feedback.

To address the first point, the config is now defined in the code, rather than the external file which you had trouble loading.

For the temperature status, I now check if the temperature item is in the list of items extracted from the XML, and if it's not, I don't try to render it.

For the layout, all sizes/locations/colours are specified in the theme file. This means that the MythStatusScreenlet is completely skinable. I've even made a couple of extra themes to try it out.

I've also added Notify popups for Starting and Finishing recordings, and have tried to implement mouseover tooltips. They are a bit flakey though, so they are not enabled by default.

I hope you like the new version and thanks for using the MythStatusScreenlet. - Jan 13 2009

Thanks for your comment. I'll have a think about how to give more options for text size/placement. My first thoughts are to move more of the layout stuff into the theme, like text size, placement etc.

I agree that the day text mushes into the time text. I wonder if right aligning the text of the day would fix that. It's really only a problem for me with Wed since the "W" is so wide. However, I suspect this varies with different X setups, and might be more obvious on your system.

Thanks for the note about closing. I had not noticed that. - Sep 03 2008

Amarok 1.x Scripts by maacruz 274 comments

I am having the same problem on my Fedora Core 4 install. I am happy to help you test/debug it.

NOTE: I am not running KDE. I am running amaroK under XFCE 4. I don't think it should make a difference, but it might be worth being aware of. - Mar 15 2006

I really like your theme (although I have not got the xmms part working) and have uncommented the pager app, but was wondering if there is a way to get the current desktop number to show a different colour.

I have seen other themes that use dcop kwin KWinInterface currentDesktop but could not figure out how to implement that in your code (I have never done any python before, let alone karamaba).

Any suggestions?, or perhaps even a version that has this working. :-) - Jan 12 2004
