Dark Wood Desktop

    Newer Older

    Edit: Thanks to lifehacker.com for featuring my desktop! (: lifehacker.com/5815254/dark-wood-desktop

    For the Wallpaper, I just got it from wallbase.cc and just adjust the brightness using photoshop because it's a bit dark. Here's the link for the wallpaper: wallbase.cc/wallpaper/493221

    And as for the dock icons: I used the Opacity Folder Set from here thvg.deviantart.com/art/Opacity-Folders-Set-83395313 and the dock that i used is from here pritthish.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=iDock#/d1jq8zu

    For the geektool day and date, it's the usual geektool commands that i used.

    For the time: I separated them so its easy to put them in each of the boxes.

    For the weather: I used this shell command that i got from this tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNFkW1lLxtU

    For the Now Playing(itunes): I got this applescript from this missionitgroup.com/blog/?p=2008

    TV DiSKO, mavshift, rubyconsumer, and 12 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      i cant get to work the itunes applescritp, how did you do it? kinda frustated here haha

    6. kimzyville 46 months ago | reply

      you have to get the itunes applescript and put it inside the iTunes folder.
      Then make a new shell command: osascript /Users/kimberlypelayo/Music/iTunes/itunesinfo.scpt
      I cant make the album artwork to display though. sorry):

      what color did you use i am boggled as to how to set your exact color

    13. kimzyville 46 months ago | reply

      I will tell you the exact color for that, but for now, try setting the opacity to 50-70 to get the right color. It is the lightest blue-green color.

    15. kimzyville 46 months ago | reply

      Ok i got the exact colors for you:

      For the time: 99ccc opacity:50%

      For the date (e.g.June): ccffff opacity 50% (same for the calendar, but set the opacity to 70%)
