I'm having difficulty with the weather.ini... the script says to get the Weather Code of your location from the location's RSS on My RSS reader add-on (Firefox) tells me there's no RSS. I took the number which was in the address bar for the location (since it appeared like what might be the Weather Code) and tried inserting it both in place of "Weather Code" and then in place of "#WeatherCode#" in the URL and have had no success. Any help? Thank you!

Hey Guys,

i've got a problem with that theme,

actually i can't find "cpu" "ram" etc...
I can load them, so on the desktops "2%" shows up - but not the description. There is only "2%" but not "cpu" or "ram" etc.

Anyone got some ideas?
SlowLoris99 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014
Forget it, it is there - just not enough contrast with my desktop

i have been using this desktop clock for over a year now because i just cant find a superior (and just as easy to utilize) clock out there for rainmeter! :D

I wish more programmers would take a hint and include a Config skin. Very few have one. and going thru Notepad code is not for everyone and can take some serious time! Especially for the OCD/perfectionists like me. doing the color-number game
(example: 242,11,98) can result in near mental breakdown--mainly to get it perfect to avoid coming back any time soon.

I never realized how much time it consumed. Thank god for your clock!  When Rainmeter crashed on my system because of a bug that I inherited from another skin install, I went about 4 weeks without the Elegance clock and it really was irritating to reactivate the taskbar from hide-mode (a) just to see what time it was.  So I just got Rainmeter back installed and had to re-download Elegance 2.

So just now I was updating the OSD for volume (b) and I wanted to match the font and for idiot's sake I just could not find out what font Elegance 2 uses in the Notepad lingo.

So I love your rainmeter skin! Life without it sucks. and please can you tell me what font is used? 

* * *
Modification Programs I Highly Recommend! (100% virus free!)
• (a) - Total Taskbar Controller (Windows/Linux) [[Download]]
• (b) - Volume2 (Win/Linux and Apple...maybe) [[Download]]

This is without a doubt the most tasteful and easy to use Rainmeter skin on DA.  I have been using it or parts of it for quite some time and never tire of it.  Thanks for your work and sharing it.  I appreciate it.

I love this theme.

Anyway, I have a tiny problem. I have your player skin near one the corner and whenever the music changes, so does the position the player. For example, if the title is too long, it will only show half of it. If the title is too small there will be a (bit of) of space between the corner and the skin. Here [link]

Is it possible to edit the skin so the player is always near the corner, like adapting it's width to the artist/title?

thanks in advance!

How can we change the color of the letter ? They are too dark and transparencie for a lot of wallpapers :/
Neibe Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
documents/rainmeter/skins/elegance2/config/ -> open the "styles" file. you have to change the value of "FontColor" to something like "200, 200, 200" (google rgb table/wheel)

Can anyone help me darken the system image thingies?
