Wow, just downloaded and tried this, and it works great! (24 inch iMac Intel with SL 10.6.2) Really nice looking and festive....just love it! Makes me want to open my widgets just to look at it. :) Love to have something like this for my desktop. Thanks to the developer, and holiday greetings to all.

Just got a new Macbook and am having trouble installing different light sets. Also can't seem to get it to switch to the colored lightset. Haven't had an issue with this on my other computer, but for some reason it's just not happening when dragging the set into the white tag...

Use this widget if you want to decorate the Dashboard. For those of us who want to decorate the desktop - download MacLampsX for surrounding lights or/and XMasLights for hanging lights. The light sets in User/Library/Application Support/Festive Lights/Lightsets are folders containing "on" and "off" sets of bulbs in .png image format. You can download more through the widget. Read XMasLights's Readme - it should give you an interesting idea!

This is a brilliant idea but it should be built as an ordinary application and not a widget. The reasons are: 1. Prompting the Dashboard display all the widgets so one have to quit them all. 2. Even if you quit all the widget the dock still shows. The application should have a full screen mode so the display would not sleep.

Great implementation of bringing blinky festiveness to your dashboard. Done well, nice options and and the ability to create and download additional lightsets gives the widget some longevity in my dashboard. This kind of thing will make my wife's holiday. A loading message at startup may be nice, as on first run I was starring at a single light for about 20 seconds (on my multitasking iMac) trying to figure out how to configure it. Suddenly my screen was filled with blinking lights, and I realized all was well.
