Anyone familiar with the Grayhound theme?

Post by AdrianJC »

Hi all,

still fooling around with the other theme, but I noticed this theme called GrayHound. Does anyone have any experience with it?
I would like to change some minor things but I can't find all or don't understand them all.

thnx

And thank you in advance.

I would like to know how to change the space between the lines.
How to add info to "let's say" the CPU skin to add info like what processor the system is and things like that.
And how to make the graphical bars not to spike into the text lines, because that makes it a bit messy I think...

This particularlly is already added, if I'm not wrong. For me at least the skin shows the processor for each core, so it appeares more times, above each usage percentage of each core. Doesn't it for you?

I worked with the Medium version of the skin, the bellow values probably are valid only for this.
Try to increase the value of the LineYRel variable into the [Variables] section of the @Resources\Medium.inc file. Initially it is set to LineYRel=-48r, try something like LineYRel=-20r (obviously by a few tries you have to find the best value for your needs).

What I want to achieve is add extra text.
Let's say with the "single" CPU (ini / inc), for example, I would like it to also read the type of CPU.

So you want the same information as that shown more times for each core, only once? Sorry, but I'm not sure I entirely understand your desire.
