The Gnome-Do Weather Docklet – Totally Awesome

Filed under
Software
HowTos

Gnome-Do comes with a variety of different docklets for use with it’s ‘Docky’ interface.

For example the ‘Trash Can’ docklet lets you right click on it and choose to empty your trash directly, or simply click it to see your deleted items. The ‘Clock’ docklet when clicked, shows a mini-calendar within the dock pane itself. There are also CPU Monitor, battery status and even a volume control docklet!

The Weather Docklet is even more useful than these to me, and can provide up-to a 6 day forecast right inside your dock! No floating Widgets or Screenlets – detailed forecasts just a click away!

The weather icon will sit in your dock and tell you both the current conditions (via an icon) and the temperature (in either Degrees of Fahrenheit depending on which you choose.)

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
