Install a modified Tiger-compatible version of GeekTool
Authored by: ybizeul on Sep 30, '05 08:53:33AM

Yes, I know, I should have released a new version already !
But other products take most of the time I have to code on my personnal projects, and I must admit I'm more motivated to work on commercial ones !
Anyway, I would be happy to merge your work with the current development version and release an official version !

I think there is no problem in this, only I have some features I wish to add in the program, so I think it's better to send you a diff file.

Like an option for real-time terminal output? Pretty please?

I was offered a penny for my thoughts, so I gave my two cents... I got ripped off.

Would love to see it play nicely with Exposť. GeekTool's one of my favorites though, and I greatly appreciate the work.

well, I typically have GeekTool showing a window over my menubar to show iTunes info using this shell script:
#!/bin/sh
set h = "       2"
if($(test $(ps -x | grep /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/MacOS/iTunes | wc -l) -eq "       2"))
then
if($(osascript -e 'tell application "itunes"' -e 'return player state is playing' -e 'end tell'))
then
        echo "$(osascript -e 'tell application "itunes"' -e 'return artist of current track & " - "' -e 'end tell')$(osascript -e 'tell application "itunes"' -e 'return name of current track' -e 'end tell')"
else
        echo "Not Playing"
fi
fi
The script refreshes every ten seconds, and it always messes with exposť when showing the desktop. Other exposť functions work correctly, but when showing the desktop, the windows pull back in when the script refreshes. It's possibly something in the script, which I just cobbled together from various sources (I just know it works, not how it works.) Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, guys, thank you both for working together. I almost gave up hope for this fantastic app... =)

And thanks to the guy pointing out the chmod-"inconsistencies".
