forgive my ignorance I just discovered the site and amazed at what you have done but am unsure how to apply this to my machine. Does this work on Win 10, when i DL double clicking gives me no options to open the file i must be doing something wrong. If you would be able to steer me in the right direction id be much obliged. TNG is the BEST!!!

Thank you so much for this skin! I'm such a huge Trekkie and when I saw this I just wanted it.La la la la  I have it installed in my laptop and now I don't wanna change it! Heart :happybounce: I love it to the core!  This is such splendid work. Compliments fall short for this. So I would just say awesome work and hopefully you can make more star trek themes. I would look forward to those! Thanks again!I am a dummy!

Hey man, first of all, thanks for the skin, it's awesome. Just one minor issue:

The weather won't work, it doesn't work with the default GXsomething code for the town in Bavaria, and it doesn't work with the 8 digits of the URL of my town, the weather only shows empty values and the degrees symbol, or percentage symbol for humidity, but no numbers. What can I do about it?

The weather code changed a while ago. I would recommend using the newer LCARS, a fix for the weather is in the comments

One thing I had to change was the functionality of the web links.  They automatically put a "www." in front of you're desired destination and none of the 4 I wanted to use begin with www.  I found the location in C:\Users\"NAME"\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\LCARSv2\resources\Windows\WindowsTNG\WindowBorders.inc.
Look for #WebButton1Path# and remove the parts you don't want.  Change WebButton 2, 3, and 4 as well then you're done.

Again, absolutely awesome skin!

Last question for a while. I'm running this on a laptop with 1366x768, I'm not getting the network & sharing section. In fact, my entire screen is different than the screenshot you have up. Is that just because of the resolution I'm using? I'm assuming you used the 1920x1080 for the image?

Edit: freaky333.deviantart.com/art/n… is exactly what I'm seeing

No worries, it's still awesome. I just got Rainmeter today and this is the first theme I downloaded. I'm going through and trying other ones, but I keep coming back to LCARS.

Is there a way to change the starting location of the 'database' link? Because I don't want it to start in C:\Users\User

:iconjefson:
Jefson Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015
2.5 will start in "Computer"
to change that in 2.4 you would need to find the [MeasurePath] meter and delete or change everything after "Path=" (should be around line 5180)

Your Laptop probably scaled up the Windows elements that are configurable at the Windows 10 controls (this has nothing to do with Rainmeter). Rainmeter Skins are also scaled with those settings. I can't think of anything else than that because the same happened with my old Tablet.

Thank you for such a superb desktop!

This is amazing.
Just finished customizing mine. I'm a programmer so I changed all of the "Ratings" to opening different terminals and file transferring applications haha. Fantastic.

Quick question: if one of the Menu Layout Buttons is red, does that signify anything? Thanks!

Primary: CPU over 80%
Secondary: Power below 25%
Normal: Weather temperature over 25° or below 5°C
Additive: Steam application detector (red means that Steam is not running)

After a year, there is no skin that can compete with this one! Thanks! Any chance you can put together a Klingon Tactical display using pIqaD font? It's available free for download on the Klingon Assault Group's website, hol.kag.org/. The site also does fairly good translation and even grammar instruction.

Hallo Freak, danke erstmal für diesen schönen Skin, er funktioniert wunderbar.

Ich habe nur 2 Fragen:

1. Wie schaffe ich es das er meinen VLC erkennt? WMP funktioniert wunderbar, aber VLC will er irgendwie nicht, liegt es daran das dieser nicht unter C sondern F installiert ist?

2. Unter System Info wird unter CPU nur 1600 mhz angezeigt, obwohl ich einen Intel 3770k mit einem Standardtakt von 3,5 GHz besitze. Auch andere Rainmeter Skins zeigen mir nur das an, außerdem (bei denen die es hatten) keine Temperatur. Das Tool CPUz zeigt mir hingegen die richtigen Werte an. Liegt das an Windows 8.1 64bit?

:iconjefson:
Jefson Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015
1. VLC wird nur "teilweise" von Rainmeter unterstützt. Ich glaube es funktionieren nur Buttons wie z.B.: Play, Pause, Stop, Previous und Next. Genauere Infos findest du auf der Rainmeter Seite im NowPlaying Plugin bereich.

2. Die Taktrate stimmt bei mir auch oft nicht (Bei meinem Intel i5 liegt das vermutlich daran, dass die Taktrate im Leerlauf gesenkt wird um Strom zu sparen), die Temperatur wird jedoch meist von dem Tool SpeedFan verwaltet. Einfach über Google suchen und das Rainmeter plugin dafür auch gleich noch installieren, danach sollte es klappen. Win 8.1 64bit sollte keine Probleme machen. ;)

MSD stands for "Master Systems Display" but does nothing currently
It's just a placeholder
