Wallpaper Clock Screenlet

Conky by Whise 73 comments

if anyone else is in my particular boat, where the resolutions aren't quite right for your screen, edit WallpaperClockScreenlet.py and change the line
os.system("/usr/bin/dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper " + self.mypath + "/wallpaper.png 7")

to have a 6 at the end instead, which is the mode to stretch the wallpaper instead of just scale it - which leaves blank areas at the sides.

I think Gnome users can just set this mode in the settings dialogue. - May 11 2008
Radio Screenlet

The BBC Radio 5 football commentaries aren't available using this URL, due to 'contractual obligations', it's for UK users only.

If this is you, just change the URL in the menu.xml config file to
http://www.bbc.co.uk/fivelive/live/live.asx

and it'll work. I don't if this works for non-UK IPs. - May 11 2008
