Ok, there seems to be some confusion on what I'm useing here. Its a stock UI, except for Konfabulator and the backgrounds. If you don know what konfabulator is, then LOOK IT UP. I looked at wraith's post and suspected that was what he used, I coped what I liked.
Again, just to state, becuase I know it will be asked, EVERYTHING fancy you see is Konfabulator, there is nothing else running!

All those widgets (weather, CPU, monitors, etc.) are Konfabulator. Wraith's desktop is also using konfabulator for this month. I'm not 100% sure about that TV schedule but I would assume it's konfabulator as well. I think all widgets have an opacity/transparency option. Cheers.

WoOps, my bad. So they are widgets for desktop X? I thought Desktop X completely modifies your shell but your shell looks liike traditional xp, am i missing something here? There is a way to use widgets with Desktop X without completely altering your shell?

So you are saying that widgets are not restricted to Desktop X but are simply just addons? Sounds good.

They are not the same. Talisman is for complete shell replacment, Konfabulator allows you to use small programms on your desktop which can show some usefull info like you saw at the screenshots. I personally don't like Talisman but that's me, and as far as i know it's not freeware, Konfabulator is!. You can download Konfabulator here

Well... just got back from a nice weekend and found this in my PM box. I'll let this one slide since phillyman2004 is relatively new here.

I liked how you customized your desktop in the August post Here

What programs do i need , i dont want to slow down my machine with 20 different programs

I know AveDesk can do the nice icons , but how did you get the Calendar going down the screen ? and the Recycle bin change

Thanks

Right now i have AVE and Samurize as programs


First off to anyone who might read this, it's better to ask in the forums themselves since more people will have different inputs.

As for me, the only programs that I have running are AveDesk and WindowBlinds. As for the calendar, it's a slight modification of the Vertical Calendar docklet for SysStats. You can find all the info you want there as well as links to various SysStats configs.

If you have more questions about AveDesk or SysStats, you'll probably want to ask in the Aqua-Soft forums (AveDesk is under Ave's Apps).

For the Recycle Bin, I hid the default recycle bin with TweakUI (from Microsoft) and then AveDesk comes with a default Recycle Bin desklet (it's under the PidlShortcut desklet).

Most of the stuff you do with Samurize you can probably do with SysStats... you just need to know a little bit of scripting to make it work. If not, stick with Samurize - I don't think it's too bad on resources (I haven't used it in a while).

And to find icons... Google and DeviantArt. That's all I can say.

Happy modding! :hello:
