Sun + Sand - RainMeter Desktop by KreDoc Sun + Sand - RainMeter Desktop by KreDoc
UPDATE! No. 2 - The sand image was low resolution, thanks to photobucket; reuploaded it at it's original size. Please redownload if you want to have a proper effect! I'm sorry for not noticing sooner. Thanks to ~myshad for notifying me.
UPDATE! - Thank you guys for your support, I really appreciate it. I'm sorry for taking such a long time to answer to your queries, the studies got in the way. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ok, I did change very fast the last one. But I spend a lot of time in front of my pc now, pretending I'm studying (I really have to :P).

--
Inspired by March '11 Geektool Desktop

So, Credits:

  • Wallpaper
  • MacBar 3.0 en by ~Vit-Ok
  • Generic Yahoo! Weather by me
  • Manual Google Calendar by me (it looks like but doesn't really pull data from google)
  • Media Player inspired by WMP Player for Rainmeter by ~SieSie . It uses, however, the latest NowPlaying plugin.
  • KrEveReader (Evereader by ~Kaelri MOD)
    After a lot of requests, I uploaded the modified evereader.
    Download it here.
    TIP: If you would like to disable the Title preview (it appears when you hover over a feed item) click here.

  • Custom Helvetica clock by me. You need the font used for it to display properly.
    TIP: If you would like to create the same "behind the image" effect, here is the code for a simple image skin and here is the image used. grab this .rmskin here. BEWARE that you have to edit the skin and change the H value to match your monitor resolution and/or your "Windows Wallpaper Picture Position".


Fonts Used: Helvetica & Helvetica Neue.

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as downloading one file. You will have to install Rainmeter (it's a program), then download and use the skins I have linked above. I'll have to warn you though, that you won't be able to fully re-produce it, given that not of all the skins depicted are released. Having said that, welcome to Rainmeter!

Hi, I'm new to this, so forgive me if this question is stupid...

Is there a way to lock the sand overlay so that it stops jumping back up to the top level when I click in that area?

Thanks for the help =)

hey ive done everything perfect except for one thing. ive been trying this for weeks and i cant get it to work:/ can u please tell me how to make that home ribben on the top right of the macbar to make it go to "my computer". i have no idea how to do it as there is no directory path in the code... Thanks in advance

:iconkredoc:
KreDoc Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
I think you mean "on the top left". Locate the image meter of the home ribbon, and add this line "LeftMouseUpAction=["shell:MyComputerFolder"]" (without the quotes) in the end of the section. Right now this ribbon should open the Start menu, so you have to remove that MouseAction and replace it with the above.

I've read whole comments and I've created the skin but since I'm a rainmeter beginner I still couldn't manage to put clock behind the sand..Why didn't you upload the skin? :)
Reply
:iconkredoc:
KreDoc Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
Because it will still require proper measurements from your part, to match the windows wallpaper exactly, so I thought that it wasn't a vital option. Nevertheless, I just uploaded the .rmskin, check the description again. I hope you can get it to match.

You will have to create a new skin. Read this: [link] to get you started. Ideally you should read the whole Rainmeter 101.

You have to install them. This supposes you have already installed the latest version of Rainmeter. Visit [link] for more information.
