Changing color for Illustro

Post by zaster379 »

I'm a newbie when it comes to using Rainmeter. I installed Illustra skins and am using the latest Illustra Clock
and Illustr Weather.Extended skins

Both installed showing blue backgrounds. Other skins (non Illustra) I installed are more a greyish brown.

I'm hoping someone else has found which .ini file(s) and which line in them sets the background color so that I could try and find a somewhat matching color.

They should show colors based on your wallpaper. Try changing your wallpaper image. You can check the box in Windows personalization 'Colors' to 'Automatically pick an accent color from my background'.

EDIT: You can middle-click any illustra skin to open the options and select several different color schemes

If you still are having issues, please let me know and it may help to post a copy of the Rainmeter Log showing any errors.

Thanks for answering this. The middle-click, and then choosing Semi Transparent background actually matched the color of my other skins best. Thanks again! :)
