Haven't set up widgets on my Mac yet. I've been using icons from MkII, British Library III, and other sources, as well as LiteIcon, cDock and some other software.

Acherontia - I love those screenshots.



I know, another screenshot from Windows showing my widgets. This time my current workhorse a Dell e5400 laptop.

Just loaded my old widgets, felt like updating a few, so I need them on my desktop.

Black and white background - the widgets still look good to me.

This desktop works. Volume control top right, my media player playing "Wrong Number" by the Cure, weather feed being updated realtime, cpu and other resource usage monitored bottom right, alarms handled by the my old clock/calendar, notes taken on my orrery, two attractive clocks and a stopwatch.  Folder manager being updated now.

Yahoo widgets and Xwidgets mixed together. System is idling at 10%-15% usage. 2.5ghz core2duo.

My Xwidgets are here:

My Yahoo Widgets are here:

Nice!
I feel a bit drab - I have a abstract picture of my old (now deceased) B&W cat & my (living) jinga ninja cuddled up together! That's on my Mac. On my netbook I have a photo of an Irish prehistoric court tomb - Shanballyedmond, in Co. Tipperary, and my icons are mix of British Library and Autumn.
How boring!

Use imgur or deviantart.

This is a mockup of the VLC media player skin:



Norfolk is lovely.

I think I'd like that castle - just parcel it up and send it to Ireland, on the west coast, somewhere in Co. Clare!

I think I looked at imgur some time ago. May have another look.

imgur is reliable, deviantart is not, that's why you couldn't initially see my last media player image, I changed it to imgur and it appears... tinypic seems good too, avoid photobucket like the plague.

Yes, I have seen the Photobucket thread!
Might have a look at tinypic later on this morning.

My media player widget is having an upgrade. I'm adding support for Mac OS/X through the use of Applescript and Quicktime to the Yahoo widget media player.



On the desktop portion here you can see one copy of the Yahoo widget version on the top right and the two Xwidget versions on the left.

The Xwidget version allows you to run multiple versions of the media player on your desktop, each opening a separate folder of your choice. The memory footprint is small, the cpu usage negligible on one of today's basic Windows desktops.

I have some instructions on how to run the widgets successfully on OS/X and removing the dock issues that arose from El Kapitan onward. It is simply modifying the .plist file for YWE and editing one line to disable the dock. YWE then runs perfectly well, the widgets function correctly.

I am getting my old Mac working, I'll test it there and then document the method.

The media player widget functions beautifully on all forms of Windows, it has been modified to work on OS/X but is not available yet for that o/s as it needs to be tested and debugged. A work in progress.

Instructions for running Yahoo widgets on Mac OS/X, all recent versions including Sierra.

Edit the following file:

com.yahoo.widgetengine.plist which is in /Users/xxx/Library/Preferences. Look for these lines:    <key>DockOpen</key>
   <string>false</string>

Change to false if it is true.

Then you should be able to start Yahoo! Widgets and the menubar item should appear. Widgets can then be started from the menubar or by double-clicking them in the usual way.
