Greetsaver Update

Fri, 06/20/2008 - 12:37pm by ejk

As requested by [|superpatron Ed Vielmetti], here's a fresh link to the latest and greatest version of our "GreetSaver", which welcomes patrons and visitors to various locations of the Library.

  • [:files/devdownloads/GreetsaverQC.qtz|GreetsaverQC.qtz]

This should work on any Mac running OSX Leopard, but there's a bit of additional configuration that must be done. You need to subscribe to the AADL video podcast, and you need to put some awesome library pictures into a new folder called "GreetPics" inside your Pictures folder (~/Pictures/GreetPics for you terminal geeks out there).

*UPDATE* I forgot I used a custom patch to grab the video files on the welcome page. If you want them to show up follow these instructions:

  1. Download the latest Folder Movies patch from Kineme: []
  2. Create a new folder in /Library/Graphics called "Quartz Composer Patches" (there should already be a folder there called "Quartz Composer Plug-Ins", don't use that folder)
  3. Copy the FolderMoviesPatch.plugin file into this new folder "Quartz Composer Patches"

This should make a random movie from the AADL video podcast display on the welcome screen.

Enjoy, and throw me a note if you have questions or want to mash it up.
