Birdcage - May 2010 by alecive Birdcage - May 2010 by alecive
GTK Theme: Unified modified
Window Manager Theme: Unified modified
Icon Theme: AwOken, made by me (it's just an alpha version)
Wallpaper: orange_gray_6_by_vivaelhuano
Dock at the top: avant-window-navigator
Panel at the bottom: tint2
Notes: Around tint2 there is a conky that prints to screen only essential parameters; clicking on the big token icons inside the conky are launched more conkys (as shown in the third desktop). But this is only a fake: indeed, there are launchers under the icons (one launcher for each icon) hidden by the main conky: clicking on a icon means clicking on the launcher, and this runs the further conky. Clicking again on the icon the conkys will close themselves. Conkys are these:
* calendar: shows the calendar and uses a python script that prints for each month what has to be done reading from a text file located in my /home. It gives the possibilità to insert notes in various colours, and for each month in the year.
* meteo: it describes himself
* hard-disk: shows memory occupation of internal disks; with a python script it prints also memory occupation of any external disk connected to the computer
* cpu: it describes himself
* wifi: apart some obvious parameters, the core is a python script that reads from transmission torrent download list (and relative status) and prints them to screen. Obviously, torrents are kept randomly (I don't download films from the net!), and IP is a fake (or not?!?!)
* musica: it describes himself
Note: Il pannello inferiore è circondato da un conky minimale che mostra tutta una serie di parametri essenziali; se si clicca sulle grosse icone token vengono lanciati ulteriori conky (come mostrato nel terzo screenshot). In realtà però ci sono dei lanciatori nascosti sotto alle icone in modo tale da poter lanciare nuovi conky se necessario. Cliccando nuovamente sulle icone i conky si chiudono. Questi conky fanno rispettivamente:
* calendario: mostra il calendario e con uno script python disegna per ciascun giorno le cose da fare leggendo da un opportuno file di testo presente nella /home. Si possono inserire differenti colori, ed inserire note per ciascun mese dell'anno.
* meteo: si descrive da sé;
* hard-disk: mostra l'occupazione di memoria dei dischi interni al computer; un opportuno script in python stampa a schermo anche le percetuali di occupazione dei dischi esterni eventualmente inseriti.
* cpu: si descrive da sé;
* wifi: a parte alcuni parametri ovvi, la parte cruciale è uno script in python che legge i torrent in download da transmission (e relativo status) e li disegna sullo schermo;
* musica: si descrive da sé;

Sei un mostro.... Nel senso buono :D I desktop che vedo di solito a giro sono solo delle modifiche di colori, icone ecc... Il tuo desktop e' il piu' originale che abbia mai visto, composizione perfetta!
