My PM desktop 2 - work in progress
« on: October 03, 2015, 10:36:10 pm »
Another desktop project in the same veine as project 1. Yes I like "orange on black". This goes with the PM dark theme of course. I use a bit of a PM background image. I hope they don't mind  ::)

Hi armageddon51,

That's really a very nice desktop setup! The orange on black is really beautiful and matches my tastes as well.

Regards,

I love it.  Orange and black are the colors of my favorite sports team.   :D  Plus, the background with the motorcycle is sweet.

This is an update with the conky corrected and items repositioned. The conky script need modifications most of the time. For this one, the distro image path was wrong (I did a new one for peppermint) and the items positions have to be modified manually. Also the positions in the lua file have to be done to align correctly. You have to select the correct code for your city temperature too. Btw I am in no way an expert in conky but most of the stuff is a simple text file with x-y coordinates.
