Love Kush for Rainmeter by KimboPrice Love Kush for Rainmeter by KimboPrice

..NOW UPDATED!


Current version: 1.01b
- Changed the taskbar and removed the secondary option.
- Changed fonts and sizes. Also disabled AntiAliasing.
- Removed the dropdown !bang lists and added links instead.
- Removed the Start Button and Tasks functionality.
- Removed the clock from the taskbar and wrote a standalone skin for it.
- Added a Spotify control skin written for the taskbar.
- Added a Winamp control skin written for the taskbar.
- Added a Gmail notifier skin which displays new emails.

NOTE: Only tested on native 1920x1080p monitor but should work on any resolution.

History:
LoveKush is what I called a Rainmeter skin I wrote for myself whilst trying to clean up my desktop.
My roommate saw the skin and asked what it was called and who made it: I told him it's called LoveKush,
he laughed and asked if I was serious. For those of you who don't get it: ..really? - He tested the
skin for me and soon after I released a screenshot here on dA. I got some good feedback and after a little bit
more testing I released the skin. I abandoned the project long ago. I had great things in mind for LoveKush
but it got pushed aside for other projects. When I saw it's one of the 100 most popular Rainmeter skins of all
time on deviantART I decided to re-touch it and hopefully make it worthwhile having installed.

Features:
- Customizeable "taskbar" or "objectbar" for Rainmeter.
- Standalone clock skin with similar design as the taskbar.
- Standalone Spotify control skin which fits on the actual bar.
- Standalone Winamp control skin similar to the Spotify one.
- Standalone Gmail Notifier, displaying how many new mails you've got.
- A "menubar" with some graphics and extra shortcuts.
- Drop shadow effect beneath the bar, looks good on dark wallpapers.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Original post REMOVED.
Feel free to modify. But releasing a mod as your own is a douche move (:

So I really love this, but is there any way to change the color of the background bar? I have some basic knowledge but not very much and I cant seem to find a way to do it.

Yup, both are just static .png files. Go into the skins folder and find them, then just make a new document in Photoshop with the same dimensions. Should be fairly easy.

Same applies to the "start button" - Just remember to change the IMG=...png in the document, or name your files the same as I did in the skins folder. When I made this I didn't know about the user menu-thing where everything is easy to edit for the user. And it's been so long, opening and working on this again would just be a pain. So sorry about that.

Its no problem at all. I can manage all that myself I just had no clue where to find it. All the syntax is really the most confusing part for me. Thanks again for the advice and the skin.

Hey really liking the design on this one. Just curious for a beginner not sure how to set the text paths to 1. a program on my computer and 2. to a website. Even if you point me in the right direction of what to Google or look for because I cannot find anything. Thanks!

Great job, though I do have a little bit criticism, if you don't mind (maybe to improve on future revisions)

I love the grey taskbar, works perfect on my current build of Windows 8. Though I have to say, it would be a great idea for the drop out menus to fade away when you click on another link.

Right-click the taskbar, properties and auto-hide taskbar.

Cool story bro. Maybe you should consider re-installing Windows or upgrade your hardware if Rainmeter uses 90 % CPU.

If Rainmeter uses 90 % of your CPU then obviously there's something going on with your computer.
Rainmeter uses very little CPU, no matter how many skins you've got going. So if you're having issues, format your computer.

cpu rides %90 when love kush is loaded, rainmeter works stable unless.
just wanted to check if there may be any coding glitches but we have a very self-confident coder here so lets say its my bad luck.
anyway thanks for your interest champion...

I don't have the issue - You're the first out of 9000 downloaders to mention it. It's not a skin issue, it's yours.
Simple solution: Go over the code and use your awesome intellect to fix an issue that is only affecting you.
Have fun, maybe your i7 3930k processor can help you figure it out.

It's a theme inside the rainmeter skin.

> Love Kush.
> Menu panel.

- Edit skin
- Go under "DO NOT EDIT ..." and remove the [Taskbar] code.
- Go further down to [xClock] and change "%H:%M:%S" to "%I:%M:%S"

How can i add a games menu like the applications one?
or just post the basic language to it so we don't have to ask... improving that aspect the language with more descriptions to help would be a plus for a next update.

Ok, so this is one of the more anticipated works that I watched and I actually just registered an account to congratulate you on this amazing piece of art!~
Though it is flawless, I am completely confused on how the Menu section can be modified to actually take you to the options written.
For example, it says play some games: take me to my game folder.
or surf the web: takes me to a aforementioned website.
