Artist's Note

Get facebook notifications on your desktop in the form of a clickable facebook icon, and RSS feed.

the package includes the photoshop files for the images as well as the png files, so you can mess around with them.

note: in order to move the skin around you need to open it up (by clicking it)and drag the notifications, becuase you cant drag the icon by itself, i dont feel like fixing it... its really not so bad, how much are you really going to move it?

note2: this is a [drastic] alteration of BlueFeed, ()

Holy cow this thing is sick.
I'm going to mod it's colors a bit though, I'm a big fan of green.

If anybody feels that the big blue Facebook icon is too big and in the way, just set the transparency to 60 or 70% and choose fade in.

true, there is also a tg.psd file in the images folder, this is teh photoshop file for the big facebook icon, you can easily make the icon smaller, or even change it for that matter. as a note, the positions of the mouseout, mousedown, and mouseover images in the PNG file for the icon are centered at 1/6th, 1/2, and 5/6 for any image size, so you can make the icon any size, or any image for that matter as long as you have 3 imaged centered on those locations. i think i left the guide lines in the PSD file too.

also note that you have to save the psd as the tgop.png and tgcl.png these are the images for then the menu is open and closed, so you can have like an arrow pointing down to open and up to close or something...

It seems it doesn't work.
I also tested the Facebook Notifications RSS with Bluefeed, and same result.
But with the Reader of Enigma, no problem.
Any idea ?

to get the rss feed for facebook, click the notifications button at the bottom of facebook. then click "See all" on the right hand side, there is an option for RSS, click it, and copy the adress it takes you to for the link in the code

I actually like putting it up in a corner and setting the transparency to 99%, because otherwise it clashes too much with the rest of my desktop

How in the world do you open it in the first place? I keep clicking it and refreshing it but nothing ever happens. It just blinks.

I get the same thing, it just keeps blinking upon click. I already changed the "CHANGE MEEE" to something like "URL=www.facebook.com/blahblah"

I really want this skin to work, it looks awesome.

I'm getting a, "measure S1 error message on the value" column of the about dialogue box for this skin. I presume that's the reason it's not working? Has anybody know what that value/measure means? Any help appreciated
