Heh it was the google translate.. i feel retarded :o and I havent had the issue with it not showing the lyrics so maybe it was a one time thing.

I HAVE noticed that when I try to do thge "Inverse" color option the whole window disappears and I basically have to reinstall the screenlet to get anything with it to work again, also it seems to not like when my computer goes into screensaver, it like locks to teh background and is very hard to find the spot to rightclick and edit/move - Mar 19 2010

Blah this time it said the /usr/share/gdm/randompicgdm/desktop didnt exist... reinstalled as root and got

matsuo@matsuo-desktop:~$ cd /home/matsuo/Desktop/RandomPicGDM/
matsuo@matsuo-desktop:~/Desktop/RandomPicGDM$ sudo su
[sudo] password for matsuo:
root@matsuo-desktop:/home/matsuo/Desktop/RandomPicGDM# ./install.sh
ln: accessing `./background': Too many levels of symbolic links
Now put somw jpg's in ~/GDMThemeData/pics.
Then enter ~/GDMThemeData/data/SelectType to select random or sequential picture display.
Then enter ~/GDMThemeData/data/SelectBackground to select your login background.
Don't forget to set ~/GDMThemeData/data/SelectBackground as a start up program in System->Preferences->Sessions.
Or you can just run it manually when you want to change backgrounds.
You can re-run ~/GDMThemeData/data/SelectType any time to change to Random/Sequential picture choice.
Do you want to do all this now? (Y/n): Y
Put some jpg's into ~/GDMThemeData/pics and press enter
Select Random or Sequential login picture (R/S): R
/root/GDMThemeData/data/SelectBackground: line 20: NUMBER %= MAXFILES : division by 0 (error token is "MAXFILES ")
All done...Bye!
root@matsuo-desktop:/home/matsuo/Desktop/RandomPicGDM#

Hi when I use this theme I get the error "Too many symbolic links"

I installed like you said to in the read-me. Is this something on my end? And if so how can I fix it?

I really love the idea of a random picture everytime so I'd really like to use your theme =)

Thank you - Mar 15 2010

I'm sorry if someone already said something abt this and you said a fix.. but 13 page sis alot to sift through for me atm but, everytime a new song comes on i have to pause it and start it to get teh lyrics to work... when teh song comes on the lyrics show but then quickly disappear. They only come back when I pause and play. also it seems to be posting lyrics twice

here's what i mean if what im saying doesnt make sense:
