you could pick a convention for ANY movie or tv show and you would get photos like that
just people having fun...

but you can go too far... google "lyra plushie" and see what you get

its all well and good to have your own ideas, but when those ideas are wrong, surely you have to update them

The first one says it needs conkyforecast for the weather part, which will be a problem as that script doesnt work anymore (some who have used conkyforecast before have reported it works for them but i dont think a new user will be able to get it working)

in the second one you have conkyrcs calling lua scripts

for example in the file named "conkyrcmx" this line

lua_load ~/scripts/otherrings.lua

you need to take the script called otherrings.lua and put it somewhere then edit the line in conkyrcmx to point to the location

similar for the conkyrc "conkyclo"
it calls the lua script "clock.lua"

lua_load ~/scripts/clock.lua
lua_draw_hook_pre clock_rings

if you dont want to edit, make a folder called "scripts" in your home folder and put the lua scripts in there, then they will be found

looks like there is a shell script to start everything : "conkycor.sh"

#!/bin/bash
sleep 20
conky -c ~/.conkyclo &
sleep 10
conky -c ~/.conkyrcmx
exit 0

the 2 conkyrcs "conkyrcmx" and "conkyclo" need to be put somewhere and then edit the shell script to point to them
if they are in your home folder then the shell script will find them without editing

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

So if the human race could only see in greyscale there would indeed be no such thing as red, but there would still be 700nm radiation

So people aren't 'colour-blind' they are electromagnetic radiation wavelength impaired.   O:)

Exactly LOL

you cant change your diet and change your blood pH,
pH is controlled by the kidneys to within a very narrow range

^^^ to address your points in a serious way, i agree about the user who asked about changing the appearance of crunchbang, and in fact, If i remember correctly, several people posted in that thread that they disagreed with porkpiehat's approach to the poster (edit - when you read it and was outraged, did you report the post?)
but just like that response, there is a helpful way to respond and an unhelpful way to respond

you seem to be under the impression that Corenominal owes you something and this is simply not true
he created crunchbang and released if for free on his own time
if he wants to reduce or stop work on it, then that is his choice

i think you need to separate the forums and the distro as 2 distinct entities (the distro creator is a third distinct entity)
obviously they are related, but having a problem with the distro does not therefore translate as having a problem with the forum also (and having a personal problem with Corenominal also does not translate to having a problem with the forum either)

many people here dont even use crunchbang

Let's try an analogy...
You go to someone's house and they ask you to take your shoes off at the door

Do you..
A.  Call the request despicable and walk into their house with shoes on anyway
B.  Remove your shoes as a sign of respect for your hosts wishes

Then there is C where you have the choice not to enter at all
