Galaxy Suite Rainmeter by kop4 Galaxy Suite Rainmeter by kop4
================================== EDIT =======================
May 20th 2013

Well, I haven't really done much for updating this suite like I promised, but its done really well so far, better than I expected.
If this gets to 30k downloads I might just put out a 2.0 version with sick new rainmeter 3.0 stuff!

So share with your friends and all!!


The suite I have been working on for months now is finally done... ish.
There is quite a to do list so make sure you check back for updates!!!

Galaxy 1.0-
Clock with date, time, and CPU meter with a history of ~10 min
System Monitor - 2 cores, 2 HDs, Network, and Temperature graph to track changes
Music player (***iTunes 10.5 doesn't seem to be working with the plugin right now. It could just be me though)
Launcher - 7 programs, libraries, and 7 bookmarks
Notes - 4 pages
Map - cuz its cool : P
Weather -Self Detecting - [link]

To do:
Global Settings config
-Change up launcher to be more friendly and use less load
-Add bing and Yahoo
-Split up system monitor into multiple configs:
CPU (multicore capability)
Network (Daily and monthly data usage)
HD & Ram space

^^ As you can see, quite a list - SO MAKE SURE you check back for updates (or a +watch, you know : P)

Also, please add suggestions in the comments, if you thinks of any other sweet things to add.

Uses Segoe UI Light font and Speedfan - download here : [link]

You will need to adjust the variables in the global .inc file, just middle click on any config. Specifically the locations of the apps and folders in the launcher and the HD drives

Thank you for downloading, and pls check out my other skin - [link]

Hey Kop4, have you thought about adding in a menu?
I always put in menus in my skins for myself :D

Maybe you can add one, or I can help you add one?

How to download this..? i'm new to this.. help me out please..
AlexandraVeda Featured By Owner May 29, 2014
Do you mean DeviantArt or the Rainmeter desktop gadgets? If you want to start using rainmeter desktop gadgets, first go to ( their official site and download the newest version of rainmeter. After installing you can download files like these, by finding the download link (it has a green arrow on it) next to the image on the top right or sometimes under it in a link inside the description. Then you can just load this rainmeter file into your rainmeter program. I don't have rainmeter at the moment, so I don't know if it changed a bit since I last used it, but basically you can just select gadgets you installed in the rainmeter directory. I hope this was helpful, I see you commented monts ago, so chances are you figured everything out since then. :)

I love this but I wish I could edit the content on the launcher.

Made an account on here just to tell you to keep up the great work on this beautiful skin.  INI's are pretty straightforward and quite customizable as well.

can some one tell me how to download
steptaker Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013
When I copy and paste my route to Pictures it doesn't work. However it seems to work for my Documents, Music, and Videos folders. Anybody else having this issue? I've checked the lines for any errors or spaces but I've come across none.
NukeWithG Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2015
Don't know whether you're still having the problem, but there's a typo in the main code of the skin. Right click on any of the widgets, click "edit", and scrolldown until you see "picspat". Change it to "Picspath" but don't alter any of the symbols near it.

Sorry to be a newb at this, but how do I change the shortcuts on the launcher?
Been looking for days now
HagarEinherjer Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
Can I change the color of the text in notes?
kop4 Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Student Digital Artist
If you middle click it there is a variable "Gray=255,255,255,100" near the top, change the last value (100) to, say, 150 or so, then refresh and that will make it a bit easier to read. If you want to change the colour entirely, just plug the Red, Green and Blue values into the first, second, and third slots.

how do i download this?
k-nada Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
Thank you for sharing! This is really awesome, I mean both the look and the function. Could you tell me how could you make the note plug refresh automatically after edit the txt file? I tried to find the code but it seems I always failed >_<

adigoeshollywood Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
I hope you continue the work on that great skin. January 26 seems that it was a long time ago.. but still I like it. Is there any possibility to reduce the backgroundblur? Thanks in advance!
adigoeshollywood Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Edit: Remove not reduce. sorry.
adigoeshollywood Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Okay, found the solution. Great and beautiful skin! I'm glad you did this.
DubstepWubstep Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013
Did your method also happen to remove to the "background" from the map skin leaving just the grey outlines with no grid lines?
