Description:

THIS IS A THEME PACK FOR MACSLOW'S CAIRO-CLOCK.

>> INTRO: As most eyecandy enthusiasts, I have an addiction with OS X's looks, therefore I created a clock like the OSX dashboard's one. Imho it is even better (MacSlow's platform beet's the dashboard, I guess)-check it it's the second screenshot one. PLZ oh plz rate or leave a comment, as the only thing I get from these efforts is satisfaction.

**** Fixed a bug that prevented cairo-clock from starting, while using ZTiger - I am trully sorry ****

>> PREVIOUS INTRO: Well I keep trying to create new stuff, I hope you like these clocks and I ain't wasting my time. Plz leave a comment or at least rate the this, so that I know your feelings on the clocks.
Now I came up with an elliptical clock, trying again to create sth that is different, so it is a "Z" one. I hope you like it.
I made major changes to ZSquare so it appears in the same size as all other clocks.

>> NOTICE: After thorough study of other themes I came up with TurboClocks, I use Red-Haze's ring and "fingers", and default theme's glass effect, the others are custom created by me. All TurboClocksZ themes (including ZTiger) are completely made from scratch.

>> HOW-TO: Just untar the file in your ~/.cairo-clock Folder, if you don't have one create it, restart cairo-clocks and it should appear in the theme list,under properties.

***** Remember to edit the clock-face.svg inside ZTiger's folder and change Athens to your city *****

>> CONTENT: ***themes number = 10***

It is not yet possible, try to create sth and put it in cairo-clock themes and you will see it yourself.

Well if you have gdesklets just add the appropriate desklets (FTB mem-gauge and FTB net gauge). Them place them where you wish on your desktop and remove all the borders from the properties. Also make their scheme white again from properties.

Greetings turbojugend!

Nice theming-work! I'm glad people start picking up the fact that the look of the clock can be altered.

I hope you won't hate me once cairo-clock 0.4.0 is done. I've changed the themeing (simplified it, only one SVG-file for a whole theme).

Best regards...

Thanks a million MacSlow!

I am flattered by your comment, I always tried to create sth beatifull and your amazing application (the Clock that would be) was the perfect base!

Again thanks a million. As for the one file theme... i hope it is as functional as the way it is now.

It is. The main difference is that you'll put every part in a seperate layer instead of a seperate file. The parts are then identified by the layer-name.

Best regards...

I have successfully installed cairo-clock on FC5, but I can't make it transparrent. ...well, I can make it transparrent by enabling xcompmgr. ..but whenever I enable xcompmgr gnome-panel disappear. ..is there a way to fix this? ...thanks a lot!

MacSlow's Cairo Clock needs a composite manager running to be transparent. f you have an issue with your composite manager you need to turn to fedora core or compiz forums for help. I use ubuntu and compiz so I can't help you on that, sorry.
