How do I set up the widgets and icons? 3 Years ago  
Hello,

I've been using Rainlendar for a few years now. I like it because it's light on resources and customizable.

I just downloaded Rainlendar 2.10 BETA build 112.

#1 How do I setup the widgets for RSS, TV, Weather, and Photos like the one in this picture?


#2 If I wanted to make my own icons out of pictures for the calendar what format shoutld they be (.PNG?), what size, and where do I place the new icons in rainlendar?


Please let me know. Any advice and feedback would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

About #1, you have done the same question 3 months ago: www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&Itemid=42&catid=3&id=15802#15802

To customize them, you need to:
right click -> options -> skins -> advanced>>> -> active skins -> settings... (on each one)

question #2: They're commonly in PNG because the transparency channel or alpha.
You can see the images used by skins looking inside the .r2skin file (it's a zip) for the "images" folder.

Hi Jorge,

Sorry about the extra post. I guess I should have been more specific.

I want to get the addons "PHOTO", "RSS", "TV", and "WEATHER" and I'm not sure I'm doing it right. I started by trying to get the "WEATHER" addon and I'm not having any luck. I could use some hand holding here.

Here what I did:

#1 downloaded Rainlendar 2.10 BETA build 112 .rar file from here:
Code:

http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&catid=7&id=16176


#2 I extracted the contents and shut down rainlendar:


#3 Copied & Pasted the extracted contents to "Rainlendar2" in the Program Files folder saying Yes to replacing all files.

#4 Restarted Rainlendar, went to right click -> options -> skins -> advanced>>> -> active skins -> settings...

This is what I see:


I don't see weather, photos, RSS, or TV.

What am I doing wrong? Please let me know.

What you're showing is that you have already updated to the latest beta.
Now you need to install the widgets.

To install the widgets you need to:
Download the latest widget skin file from: www.rainlendar.net/download/b110/Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon
Assuming that you're using WinXP, you need to double click on the .r2skin-addon file. If a dialog appears showing that the addon is installed then go forward, else, go to the user folder ( C:\Documents and Settings\[yourname]\.rainlendar2 or check here www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_easyfaq&Itemid=26#faq1 ) and open the shadow4.r2skin file with WinRAR or WinZip and add all the files from the Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon file.
Or try running "C:\Program Files\Rainlendar2\Rainlendar2.exe -i Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon" (or with --install).

After doing that, try again to see if the available skins is updated.

NOTE: If you are doing all from scratch, copy the Shadow4.r2skin file from Program Files/skin to the Documents and Settings\...\.rainlendar2 folder. You need to do this once, and then only update this file.

Jorge,

I'm having trouble with the weather widget.


I to the "GWeather.r2skin" widget from here:
Code:

http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&catid=6&id=14939


I clicked it and installed it.

I tried to follow the examples:
Code:

http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:32669%26weadegreetype=C


http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?p=USCA0987&u=f



I'm trying to get the weather report for San Francisco, CA USA.

This is what I did using the yahoo RSS:
Code:

http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0987weadegreetype=C


It's not working for me. What am I doing wrong? Please let me know.
