Software Updates

It's time for the latest batch of tardists from semi-fly - astime 2.8 and K-Jfol for XMMS 0.95!

astime, originally an AfterStep applet, is a simple analog style clock. More info on the project can be found here.

K-Jfol for XMMS 0.95 is a plugin which alllows the use of intricate interface skins on XMMS. The plugin's home page is here and includes some good information as well as a couple of links to skin download sites.


astime 2.8 (tardist) - 100K
K-Jfol 0.95 XMMS (tardist) - 740K

Finally, a slick interface for xmms on the SGI. Kudos to semi-fly. I can't wait to get home and download the tardist.

Very nice work -- just a few comments:

1) astime is very small on my screen 1600x1024, van it be enlarged?

2) K-Jofol is beautiful(!!) but serious unstable on my machine, I'll need to investigate when I find some time. Also, should the regular xmms skin disappear when the K-Jofol skin appears?

Yep, astime can be enlarged with the '-geometry switch'; './astime -geometry 100x100', which is the option that I personaly use. the program has alot of switches, so ./astime -help will list 'em.

As for K-jofol, you can set the prefs so that xmms will go away when started up. Also, you might want disable wheelmouse support for xmms as I've had problems when it's enabled (random crashes). What's the spec's on your system btw?
