hello, I've been using this skin for a while and I love it! :D however I've encountered a small problem today, I live in central Europe and we move our clocks an hour back today - but the clock skin is still showing the old time, is there a way to change it to the proper one?

dont get me wrong, you did a great job with this set up... the problem is, im on a laptop with a smaller screen and the font size makes it nearly impossible to read. i want to use these skins sssooo bad. i tried altering the font size in the code but things didnt display correctly, any other suggestions? besides buying a desktop?

Thank you SO much for this. I've been looking for a simple 12-hour digital face clock for *hours* - I swear, I am so happy right now. :D I LOVE this Rainmeter theme!

Amazing set! Is there any chance for a white or glass option in the future?

Love the skins man, they look great.

I can't seem to get my gmail to work in the gmail skin. No matter how I put my user name and password in, I can't get them to update on the skin. What's the trick here? A, I putting them in the right place?

Thanks for the help.

The google chrome skin wasn't opening the browser, so I checked the ini file. The path was fixed to who created the skin it seems, so I changed it like this:

LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute ["%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"]

Now it works.

you have to edit the .ini file to set it to your own folder.

Awesome skin, I will be using it for awhile.


So how do you setup the user/pass for the unread gmail skin? Using the format in the .ini I can go straight to the page in firefox = [link]
I have tried a few username variations, ideas?

Very nice!
Easy to edit, very clean, EXACTLY what I was hoping to get.
I used it to be able to display my resource information using as little space as possible.
Here is my current desk. [link]
Thanks for making this for all of us, much appreciated. :+favlove:
