It's one of the themes/skins. Just click on GKrellM and then do PGUP/PGDOWN to cycle through the themes, or press F1.

On mine it's called "invisible" and it is included in the RPM version I installed from FreshRPMS:

Code: Select all

$ rpm -qa | grep gkrellm
gkrellm-plugins-misc-2.1.7-fr1
gkrellm-2.1.8-fr1a
gkrellm-themes-2.1.6-fr1
gkrellm-plugins-media-2.1.7-fr1
gkrellm-plugins-utils-2.1.7-fr1

Code: Select all

$ rpm -qil gkrellm-themes | grep invisible
/usr/share/gkrellm2/themes/invisible

Transparent theme

Post by Copperhead »

I found it somewhere on the net a while ago, and installed it on my machine. I Bzipped it for you, and you can download it here:

http://home.mindspring.com/~robkrul/Transparent.tar.bz2

Download the file into your ~/.gkrellm/themes directory, and untar it:

$ tar xvjf Transparent.tar.bz2

You should be able to see it when you cycle through your themes.
