Description:

Impulse is a bit of eye-candy for your desktop. It is a widget that displays a graphical spectrum analyzer on your gnome desktop. It is written in c and python and uses GTK and cairo graphics to generate the animation. the impulse library creates a pulse audio connection context that reads the output stream from pulseaudio in a thread natively which can then be read from python. You can specify impulse to either output the raw stream or output the fft of the raw stream.


Requires:
screenlets 1.2
libfftw3-3
libpulse0


Install:
1) Download and extract Impulse.tar.bz2
2) mv Impulse ~/.screenlets/
then open up the screenlets manager and start Impulse or open screenlets manager and click Install, navigate to the Impulse.tar.bz2 archive and click ok.

Try the new revision, Spectrolet 0.1a1r6. It should fix the problem you were having

Hmm, that is because i'm guessing you are using compiz and have the Fading windows plugin enabled which dims unresponsive windows. I didn't have this enabled originally but with it enabled i now see the gray problem you are experiencing. This should be a simple fix in my code. I am assuming it is because I don't start gtk.main and instead am using my own loop. But anyway I will fix this and post the update today or tomorrow.
