Desktop weather not transparent

Discussion in 'Desktop Customisation' started by louiskhorweiwu, Apr 7, 2002.

  1. I'm a dork for not figuring this out, but how do you guys manage to make desktop weather transparent with the wallpaper? From your desktop screenshots this seems to be the easiest thing in the world...

    basically it appears on my desktop with a white background, with gaps here and there where there isn't any text. how does this work?

    In the options section, did you change the colors? I think it will be transparent if you didn't change the colors. (I'm not positive)
  3. well, I tried changing the colours after I first installed it, because it was not being transparent but no, it didn't start out transparent

    When you right click on it, open options and highlight background color it should have no color or be black. Now set the font color to white it should stay transparant.
    Check out mine:
  8. uh, ok, tried it out, and guess what?

    sigh... have a look

    I had the same problem with desktop weather (I live in Chicago half the time, maybe its because we're from the windy city...)

    The program is nice, but do you really need to know instantaneously every minute change in the weather? Just set as your homepage and have it display your forecast. Check it once per day and you're done...
  10. lol, npfanz, yeah it is probably cuz we're in Chicago...

    I don't personally care what the weather is, I just look out the window, but my girlfriend is like obsessed, and she just can't be asked to go to a website to look for it, so it's nice to have it on the desktop.

    The only thing now is that I want it to look nicer so it's not an eyesore...

    help... (whimper)

    Shut down the proggy but make sure you don't have it set to load at startup. Reboat your machine or just restart the proggy and then configure it. DON'T, I repeate DON'T touch the background tab just set your font color. It will think your starting it for the first time. See what happens.

    She's obsessed because you've go her pic on your desktop. Nice picture though.

    You know, your probably right. My background is dark blue almost black and the background color in the config box was and still is black.

    Heh, if your girlfriend is the picture on your desktop, and she wants it to work, then by all means make sure you get that stupid program to work!

    I'm sure someone will be able to help...

    Hey Wishmaster,

    Thanks gonaads. I noticed its a beta version, scared of beta. Have you had any problems before with it. Thanks

    No probs. Just that since I have a Dynamic DSL connection and you set the prog to refresh every so many minutes if I disconnect then my ZA Pro firewall prog. asks me "Blah, blah program wishes to connect to the internet ... blah, blah, blah. Other than that It's running at home as I type these words at work. Don't worry about the beta thing the worse that will happen is the prog stops working. But it should not.
