P I L E U S Suite includes:

***New Additions***
- Rainstaller by ~poiru makes installing the skins, font, and plugin a snap!
- Middle-Click any skin to launch Pileus Variables! Now customizing Pileus is truly a click away.
- New White Icons!
The original 2 sets were painstakingly inverted by ~SKINNYBOX and he graciously gave them up for download, for a total of 4 sets! So be sure to thank him if you like a white Pileus!
The icon size is still adjustable- just edit a single variable. You can still switch between the sets by changing a single variable, too!

- Clocks: Centered or Classic in 12- and 24-hour styles (edit the format in the variables file), and 4 Analog styles
- Notes: solitary and double
- Systems: solitary CPU (including dual), RAM, 4 HDD's, WIFI, and POWER configs, and/or everything in one integrated config
- Launchers: folders and applications
- Weather reader* (thanks to ~Nater43) and a second World Weather reader*
- WinAmp reader/controller
- RSS (thanks to ~saeedakd)
- Crest: a customizable icon you can use to spice up a boring desktop

Not included in this download:
- Gmail Reader: [link] by ~bhast2.
- Itunes Control: [link] by ~archon302.
- Double Gmail readers, RSS mod, Recycle Bin, and tweaked RAM single: [link] by ~EchoingDroplet

Thanks a lot! These are awesome.

*You can find more info on your weather code here: [link]

I have a problem with the WIFI widget. It no longer shows my IP and I have grown to like seeing my IP on my desktop. I have went into the files trying to find ways to have it show my IP but to no prevail. I know this is kind of a little late to post this question seeing that this was released many years ago but if there was anyway that you could help me find a way to fix this problem, I would be very grateful.

I'm having an aggravating time trying to set up the weather app, I don't suppose you could explain to me how I set it correctly?
I'm not good with coding /at all/ so fiddling with this has been ticking me off quite a bit as a result lol.
A step by step with examples would be /much/ appreciated.
Eborez Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
middle click and go to launchers and change location and name there easy as that
Yangerang Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014
Okay I'm writing this with a HUGE THANKS to livinglightningrod for this suite. I have never been on DevianARt before and literally the only reason I made an account was to praise the creator.

It's an amazingly customizable suite and I can't believe the work and effort he put into it.

This thing was made 4 years ago and I'm sure so many people are still using it today. Everything is so well explained and I can just tell the effort the author made into making it customizeable!

My only request now is something in this style for the Music Player (SPOTIFY) - winAMP is kinda old now and also a similar type of format for links?

But yeah Thanks again for everything :D
