Re: July Desktop Thread

downloaddraw_bg.lua.zip 810 bytes
In conkyrc, above the TEXT line:

# Lua
lua_load ~/scripts/draw_bg.lua
lua_draw_hook_pre draw_bg

In the lua script, the lines:

bg_colour=0x000000
bg_alpha=0.6

adjust color and transparency. I forget if the higher alpha is darker or lighter.

Also, the line

corner_r=0

Adjusts corner rounding radius, with 0 being none. I think the default was 35 when I got it. I also just noticed the script has some explanations in the comments, so most of what I just told you is probably superfluous, lol

One other thing, if you use ${image} in your conkyrc, I beleive it is drawn BEHIND the lua transparency. But I'm not 100% sure. I just have one image I was messing with show up a whole lot dimmer than it should be.
