Rainlendar ... with media frame and weather (works on Mate)

Hello :slight_smile: I’ve used Rainlendar for ages, and it’s always been great. AUR rainlendar-beta/lite/pro. Just discovered a new skin for it, which includes a media frame and weather! The skin is ChromophoreLou, and I found the download on this page: https://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&catid=9&id=17325&limit=6&limitstart=252 … just drag the extracted r2skin on top of Rainlendar, and it installs. (On original install, add Rainlendar to startup via /opt/rainlendar2/rainlendar2.) :+1:t2:

It depends on webkitgtk2 :rofl:

I can see gtk2, but not webkit. I’ve checked the deps of the 3 packages rainlendar-beta brings in (gtk2. libcanberra. libsm) and none reference webkit.

Interesting, the lite and pro version both depend on it, but not the beta.

Yes. I tend to check things carefully before installing … if I’d noticed a webkit anything when looking at rainlendar-beta deps I’d have given it a pass. Maybe the lite/pro are a new incarnation but the dev has kept the beta available for people. Still maintained, but just once in a while, to keep it working as well as it does.
