By: kajko Sat, 09 Jan 2010 16:48:15 +0000 Hi guys, I got geektool running fine, I manage to get on my Desk Top, time cpu specs n calendar. I downloaded lynx = lynx- command is in my
apps. folder and the Terminal sits in my dock.

I did try to enter few lynx -dump “for weather and temperature” on either
Shell and Image but it aint working…
Am afraid Lynx do not recognize geektool… or vice verse.. or I an cooking up elsewhere… any idea?

lynx -dump|head -n 7|tail -n 1|awk ‘{print $2 $3}’


lynx -dump

Thanks for your time!

By: ArMyZ Mon, 07 Dec 2009 05:38:50 +0000 I solved with curl call saving locally the weather.png (yahoo weather). I changed something because it didn’t write on /tmp folder (maybe a SL issue). Using a home subdir works perfectly fine ;) thank you

By: admin Sun, 06 Dec 2009 20:27:12 +0000 Hey Armando, if you’re handy enough with PHP you could have a look at doing this –
You could also look at pulling in a weather image by referencing an image from a weather site

By: ArMyZ Sun, 06 Dec 2009 19:05:52 +0000 Hello folks, I’m new to Geektool and I’m trying some shell codes. About weather, I’m using yahoo feature at the moment.
Any idea how adding yahoo weather images using geektool shell code and/or images?
(Nice template btw)


By: admin Sat, 08 Aug 2009 11:53:53 +0000 I used version 2.8.7d6 but I don’t know if that makes a difference. Once you install it then Geektool should pick it up, you don’t have to do anything special with it.

Hope that helps JeffreyK

By: JeffreyK Sat, 08 Aug 2009 00:16:52 +0000 I’m new to GeekTool — I’ve had it downloaded for a day or so and just love what it does — so I hope you don’t mind if I ask some questions…

Once you download the Lynx browser, is that it? Do I have to do anything with Lynx to let GeekTool recognize Lynx? Or do I just download Lynx, let it sit as just an installed program on my system, and then start using the “Lynx -dump” scripts in GeekTool and all is well?

Also, there are a couple of versions of Lynx on the Lynx site: Do I download the 2MB file (Rev 13) or the 3 MB file (Rev 6)?
