Re: interactive conky

those are very nice, but i'm not sure how usable they are
my other thought was some metalic looking icons (but most of those are too shiny), or a stone look perhaps

Well, I tried.  If I come across anything, I'll point them out.

Re: interactive conky

heres some more additions
currently, with the icon size seen in the conky so far you can fit 12 (at 30 degree intervals) around one circle
so i added some inner buttons which let you select different lists

you can sort out your programs into the 3 lists and switch between them

http://youtu.be/KclSbPlGkIE

im using repeating icons so you see the same icons in the different lists smile

HaHa!! Thats cool!! I have such a small amount of actual programs that I use that I may not need the additional 2 rows, but still cool!!

Peachy can I have a copy of your tolkien wallpaper? I have a rough template of your theme that I want to match up big_smile

I need to darken the stone a little, but I'm glad you like it.. I'm adding a little green leaves and such.

The text is Tengwar Elfica and says peachys launcher.. well actually it says peachys launcherp just cause I needed to fill a space and the p looks really cool

Re: interactive conky

Here is the template Peachy
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/60081679/peachyslauncher.tar.gz

I had to adjust conkyrc to

minimum_size 520 250

and image size

w=518,h=230

I'm trying to think of a nice on/off button and rotate buttons for this.
