ABOUT ----- Desktop widgets are small individual utilities placed on your desktop and RNOWidgets is a single application incorporating several of them. RNOWidgets contains widgets for calendar (ISO), analog clock, digital clock, notes, pictures (local and net), RSS feeds, sticker, and weather. FEATURES -------- - Stylish user configurable widgets (graphics, fonts, colors, etc., can be freely swapped) - Pre-defined themes - All widgets are freely re-sizeable and moveable - Supports alpha channel transparency and has an option to create window drop shadows automatically (with or without compositing/accelerated layers) - Versatile alarm system - ARexx support INSTALLATION ------------ - Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program - To start the program at boot time, add the following line to the SYS:S/user-network-startup file (and change the path to your location): Run >NIL: SYS:Applications/RNOWidgets/RNOWidgets -skipplugins=* -delay 2 (the -skipplugins argument saves some memory if you have other Hollywood plugins installed on your system) USAGE ----- General: - Use the pull-down menu or keyboard shortcuts to select which widgets are visible - The "Snapshot windows" (command-.) menu item saves widget sizes, positions, and its state if a widget is shown or hidden - All widgets are freely re-sizeable from the bottom right corner - All widgets are freely moveable from top of the widget - The "Edit alarms" (command-e) menu item opens the alarm editor window - Alarms work globally, so they aren't tied to a specific widget Calendar widget: - Months can be browsed using the mouse wheel, page up/down & left/right keys - The middle mouse button or the Enter key switches back to the current month - "Event strings" can be added by clicking dates or weekdays - Clicking the month name, pressing the space bar, or using the up/down keys shows a list of forthcoming events for the current month Notes widget: - Marking text with the left button pressed and then releasing it, will copy the marked text to the clipboard - Underlined URLs can be double-clicked so they open in your browser - Notes can be added by clicking the "+" sign with the mouse or by pressing the "insert" key - Notes can be deleted by clicking the "x" sign or by pressing the Ctrl+Del combination - Notes can be browsed with the mouse wheel or with the page up/down keys - The "pause" key will pause the automatic cycling if it's enabled Pictures widget: - Pictures can be browsed using the mouse wheel, page up/down keys, and left/right keys - Double-clicking or pressing the "f" key opens pictures on a fullscreen - The spacebar or the "pause" key pauses automatic cycling - HTTP and FTP protocols are supported for images from the Internet - "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh of the current picture RSS feeds widget: - Clicking a feed item will open the full story on a browser - Different feeds can be browsed with the mouse-wheel, or by the page up/down or left/right keys - Up/down keys show previous or next pages of the current feed - The spacebar or the "pause" key pauses automatic cycling - "r" and "enter" keys do a forced refresh for the feed - Only the HTTP protocol is supported Weather widget: - Widget's layout is dynamic so any resizing it wider alters its arrangement - Locations can be browsed with the mouse wheel, page up/down keys, and left/right keys - The space bar or the "pause" key pauses the automatic cycling SETTINGS -------- The settings application can be opened from the pull-down menu. See the MUI quick help pop-ups for information about the various settings. Settings are saved to ENV:RNOWidgets/ and they can also be altered without the settings GUI. For example, to disable the RSS widget type in the Shell: SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/rss 0 The separate "Compositing" setting in the pull-down menu is used to define if windows are drawn with hardware accelerated layers. Window shadows and alpha transparent graphics are then updated in real-time by the hardware. This only works if the program is running on a 32bit "enhanced mode" screen on MorphOS (System settings -> Screens -> Enhanced Display). Compositing mode can also be forced on or off by typing the following line into a Shell window before launching the program (0=off, 1=on, 2=default): SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/compositing 0 If you have difficulties moving or re-sizing windows with irregular shaped transparent backgrounds, enable this setting from the Shell: SetEnv SAVE RNOWidgets/safecompositing 1 COMMAND LINE OPTIONS AND ICON TOOLTYPES --------------------------------------- RNOWidgets uses non-standard command line arguments.
