OBSIDIAN for RAINMETER

OBSIDIAN
I present you with OBSIDIAN, a skin for Rainmeter . A complete set of very small and customizable system monitoring widgets for your desktop.

WHAT IS OBSIDIAN?
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.The name is derived from this because the color of that volcanic glass is Shiny Black & so are the color of the Widgets(Black and Glassy feel to it).

OBSIDIAN SUITE INCLUDES:
1.Clock - Shows the current time in 12-hour (AM-PM) format.
2.Calender - Shows the current date,day,month & year.
3.Drive - Shows the space left in a particular drive.U can change the drive in ini file.
4.Gmail - Shows the number of new mails of your Gmail account.Put your username & password in the ini file.Updates new mails almost instantaneously.
5.Network - Shows the current Upload and Download speeds.
6.Recycle Bin - Shows the items in the bin & their total size.
7.System - Shows the CPU and RAM meters.
8.Weather - Shows the current weather in your city.Put your city code in the ini file.Get the codes from weather.com
9.CAD skin - Matching CAD skin with the above obsidian suite.Not included in the above zip file.Download from here - [link]

Nice skin. Definitely caught my eye among the sea of them.
Downloaded and using but something invisible is stopping me from dragging the skins to the far left of the screen. Is there a fix for it ?

This looks very good, but I'd like to have battery and wi-fi indicators to. Any chance to ad them? That would be grate. And maybe You can ad a 24 hour clock to.

Great pack, I just cannot figure out the mail.

It works for me in genometer and in some other apps, but I can't get it to work here, it never sees new messages. Any idea why? I modified gmail in gnometer and there it works but not in your skin :(

I'm new to Rainmeter and I love it so far. Your Obsidian skin is great! I am having one issue though. . . . I can't get the Gmail widget to work. Above under "Obsidian suite includes" it says:
"4.Gmail - Shows the number of new mails of your Gmail account. Put your username & password in the ini file.Updates new mails almost instantaneously."

Yet when I open the ObsidianGmail.ini file, I can't figure out where they are supposed to go (remember i'm new). Also, inside that .ini file, it says:
"To set your your Gmail username and password, activate Gnometer\SkinSettings.ini -> Gmail/Gcal."

I did that through Gnometer and my Gnometer Gmail widget works perfectly, but the Obsidian one still does not.

Any input / added clarity on what i need to change would be greatly appreciated.

As a last note/question... is the string Url=[link]
what i need to change? More specifically, changing "username and password" to my gmail username and password? This is located under "Measures" in the .ini file.

Sorry for the long post. Thank you for any help. Keep up the good work! :)

My apologies. I just figured it out. In the string i posted above (yes, the one that didnt post correctly because like a noob I didnt realize it would create a link), where it said #USERNAME#:#PASSWORD# I was putting my username and password between the "#" symbols when they needed to be taken out as well. I really feel stupid now :P

mACrO-lOvE Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2010  Student Interface Designer
yes, open the Obsidianclock.ini file ...find "[MeasureTime]" and change Format from %#I:%M to %#H:%M. Also, Delete [MeasureTimeAMPM] and [MeterTimeAMPM] ,so that am-pm are not shown. Hope this helped.
