It's pretty cool. What you'll need to do btw to get it fully in swing, is after it's installed, pull up a terminal and do:

Code: Select all

su
password
/usr/sbin/sensors-detect

Answer yes to all the questions, then give it a reboot. :)

The gkrellm-themes package is in AUR btw. For Fedora, you gotta go download them and then extract them to ~/.gkrellm2

Edit: I'll see if I can find the link to download the gkrellm-themes. The page is down at the site, but I'm thinking I found them somewhere from there.

Edit2: I can't find them right off, so I uploaded them to my site. This is a random plugin I picked up off their site. This is the themes package (both direct downloads).

Pssst, Boss, lookie here.

Emerald with a modded theme that a certain significant other did up:

Image

Look really closely, in particular at the title bars. There's more than meets the eye right off the bat to this theme.

Image

See it? The inactive title bars go in the opposite direction on the gradient from the active ones.

Also, check out those buttons! Keep on top, Sticky, Minimize, Restore, and Maximize. :)

Nope. It's purely the Emerald theme. :)

I don't do docks much - they just get in the way. LOL.

Look at the titlebars on the windows themselves.

Ah well I have something like that here to. In Arch! But for a Fedora install I guess that is as good as it gets. :whistle:

Quite functional this, and pretty. I love the ring switcher.
