This is a Geektool tutorial on how to customize your Mac OSX desktop homescreen. Using Geektool you can add a widget like functionality to your desktop.
All you need to do is download the following script from here and place it in any folder. Then add a Geektool script and link it to the bash script you’ve downloaded.
I’ve also used a Calvin and Hobbes / Bill Watterson font to display the day, time and weather using the following codes.
You can also display your battery level, uptime, network connectivity status. There are also loads of preset Geeklets that you can download to get yourself a good looking homescreen. Sky is the limit!
