You know that feeling you get when you're leaning back in a chair on two legs...

and there's nothing you can do about it? yikes  yikes  yikes

I feel like that all the time! tongue monkey

I actually put two teeth through my lower lip when the chair went over and I did a flip and a face dive into the base board ... broke two front teeth off and my lower lip looked like a tooth piercing!  So - yea - I know the feeling!   wink

Re: Wun Weather Script for Conky (Lua)

hey guys, is this the place to ask questions about this project? Well, I just asked one so I'll keep going.

I have a mostly white background, and I like the default iweather_falldown the most. The problem is that it's completely unreadable with white font color and the transparent background. Is there a "dark" alternative, or an easy way to change the font color?

In any case, the project looks great!

Welcome oUter!
Go to your /wun/templates/ folder and open iweather_falldown.lua in a text editor in the

--SET DEFAULTS ##########################################################
--set defaults do not localise these defaults if you use a seperate display script
default_font="Mono"--In my template I use Ubuntu font.. just a nice bold text.. :)
default_font_size=12
default_color=0xffffff--white
default_alpha=1--fully opaque
default_image_width=50
default_image_height=50
default_sxo=1
default_syo=1
default_sa=1
default_weather_icons=pathtowun.."additional_files/weathericons/icons_falldown/"

near the top change "default_color=0xffffff--white" to what ever color you like. smile
Also stop by the Introductions and say hello!

Re: Wun Weather Script for Conky (Lua)

I should've reported back that I tried that. The fonts end up looking pretty weird with the dark border... I also realized that on sunny days the gigantic yellow sun doesn't jive well with a light background.. so I opened up gimp and inverted the colors... it looks ok, so I'll run with this for now.

Thanks again!

Hi oUter

Another thing to try with adding shadows to the text

you could do a find and replace

find

out({

replace with

out({shadow=1,

then use shadow defaults to set the shadow as you want

default_sxo=2--shadow x offset
default_syo=2--shadow y offset
defualt_sc=0x000000--shadow color
default_sa=0.8--shadow alpha

Re: Wun Weather Script for Conky (Lua)

mrpeachy you are a genius! and everyone who contributed are too, of course. Simple yet powerful. When I have time I'll go for my custom config. Sorry for my bad english. neutral
