Latest screenshot from my test MX15 (Jessie) partition that I'm still using.

The Lollypop media player running is the flatpak version since Jessie's gtk+ version is too old to run Lollypop otherwise.

It works but not for themeing. No matter what gtk theme you apply, flatpak Lollypop will just show up in standard Adwaita theme....

I like that wallpaper. It's really cool.

Thanks. Saw it in the monthly screenshot thread at Manjaro forum and a link was given, which I now can't find. I can't even remember which folder on my hard drive I saved the wallpaper to, so I did a reverse search of my own screenshot above and got a few hits for the original pic.

You can download from the first search result.

Looks like it was a pic posted to wallhaven at one point.

While waiting for the Uru v Por match, here's a screenshot with wallpaper by Antechdesigns and the HTC Android-esque conky from the instructions posted here:

Have now got the bigger weather conky from @male ( https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... 10#p445610 ) set up, plus I added a system-info conky below to complement it.

Bottom conky uses the new syntax, slightly modified from something off a live iso of Archmerge (now called arcolinux). Had to tweak the "number of updates" text to work with a Debian-based OS, and also adjusted the transparency/ARGB settings to work properly with Compiz.

Next step is to see if I am able to tweak and change these weather conkies from @male to display only the information I want, or maybe lay out the conky differently.

Thanks, @male. I don't know when I'll get down to testing this script, but some preliminary questions:

1. may I assume that it is meant to be called from within a conky config file using some or all of the example commands in the commented-out section?
2. a lot of the script appears to be in French. I'll need to convert them all to English, right?
