Hello! I'm having a tough time getting gmail to work. No luck after putting my account info in. Does the feed address need updating?

HI, just wanted to say this new version is great, I really like the addition of speedfan. Anyway, just on niggling little problem: I can't seem to get the recycle bin to work properly. Instead of emptying on right click it just pops up the Rainmeter context menu. I've compared it against the ini fiel from the bin in JSMeter III which works, but I can't figure out what's wrong. Also, is the temp display supposed to flip between Fahrenheit and Celsius every few seconds? Is there a way to just display Celsius? I have changed the value in user variables, but it had no effect.

jsmorley, you are soooo very helpful! The new weather and the new system flies worked perfectly! I am only left with one error message but I can't read the whole line of what it is unable to open. My guess is the 2nd monitor that you mentioned. So ignore that message till I get the chance to change it. I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you and wanted to reply back as soon as possible :)

I can't wait for the next version, but please do take your time :) I want you to know that I also have your Rainmeter help search skin and the program update skin that you made. I am impressed with your work, so please keep it up!

Ok, I changed the "HideSecondScreenSize=0" to "HideSecondScreenSize=1" and have 100% no error messages. I just wanted to let you know. Thank you very much for the very fast and very helpful help you provided! 1 million and counting thanks!

Love this skin, so very easy to customize with color options!. The weather is perfect since it shows everything you would want to know, and will show both the C and the F (switches every few sec.). I love how the dock bar is so easy to change by changing the name and changing the link. I like how you click on the drive letters and it will open up the folder for them, how it shows the processes running, and how it shows the file size of the recycle bin when you add items to recycle.
Things I would like to see, but doesn't make this skin any less perfect:
A skin to open the start menu - So we can hide the task bar and still have the option to shut down, restart, sleep, or just look at files in the start menu.
A skin to open up (or preferably show in a little window) the task bar running items (like volume, internet connections, any security software running and any other icons that are running there.)
A skin to have a sticky notes feature, something to click on the window and type a note. I know we can add notepad to the dock bar, but it would be faster and easier to show right on the screen especially if you don't even want to save the note.
***I do get some errors in the log file, I don't know if they can be fixed, so I will let you know about them here:
WebParser (1643) A connection with the server could not be established (ErrorCode-12029)
!EnableMeasure: [MeasureDrive3%] not found in "JSMeterV\System" <---- I also get this for 2% and 1% since I run 3 Drives
And finally, a warning message I get is: Script: Using deprecated GetStringValue0 in [MeasureScriptTemp]

I still use this skin and love it cause I trust your work, so don't worry :)

Also, here is a version of the system skin that eliminates those "!EnableMeasure:[MeasureDrive3%] not found..." errors. You can just replace the entire \Skins\JSMeterV\System folder with this. The only thing you might have to change again after is if you changed the variable "HideSecondScreenSize=0", which tells the skin to display information about a second monitor (or not).

BTW, here is a version of the weather skin that eliminates that "Script: Using deprecated GetStringValue0 in [MeasureScriptTemp]" warning message. Just replace the entire \Skins\JSMeterV\Weather folder with this. It won't overwrite any weather code setting you have.

Thanks for the feedback!

I think those skins you are asking about, Start menu and taskbar items and notes might be worth doing as addon skins, and I may do that at some point. The taskbar items one is tricky. Have to dig into that a bit. Not really something Rainmeter is natively good at.

As to the errors in the log. They are all non-fatal and just some tweaking I need to do. Some of these skins "evolved" out of earlier versions of JSMeter, and could use some spit and polish. I will be working in the next week or so on stomping out any last things that cause Rainmeter to object...

Thanks again, glad you like the suite.

Whoops, forgot to add another thing I would like to see, very sorry.
The names of the drives next to the drive letters. This would be perfect if it could include the CD/DVD drive as well. For example, you put a CD/DVD in the drive, it will show the name of the CD/DVD, if there is no CD/DVD in the drive, it can simply say "No CD/DVD" or "Empty".

Again, this Skin is awesome as is. I am only suggesting these things in case you are looking for ways to improve it, or more ideas :) Thank you very much for your time.

Rainmeter really doesn't handle CD/DVD drives unfortunately. The measure that is used to collection info on drives can only handle drives formatted as FAT/NTFS like hard drives and USB devices.

As to the labels, I'm hesitant due to real estate issues on that line, as a drive could be named anything. However, if you want to get on the forums [link] and create a post in "Rainmeter Help", I will be glad to walk you through how to add that information. It's not hard at all.

~jsmorley - Nice sidebar :)
One suggestion. Could You add weather configuration and change between F/C to config panel?

I know how to use Rainmeter :)
But if You already maked config panel then You should just include base skin configuration..
(Is just my opinion)

Why?

It is no harder to change a setting in UserVariables.inc than it is to use some addon "configuration tool", and the user actually gets to get at least some sense of how it works. I personally have no interest in completely isolating users from how Rainmeter works, and am far happier to help someone start learning how to make their own skins than I am in just having someone "use" a skin like it was some Windows Sidebar gadget. That is why all my skins require that you dig into them a bit if you want to change anything other than simple font colors. You may have a different outlook, and that is fine by me. To each his own.

You just use the Edit UserVariables.inc selection on the Welcome panel to set all configuration items including weather. The F/C for the weather toggles between the two automatically and needs no setting.
