[v3.6.5] AquaTouch -- Powerful, Flexible, Contextual. Supports 55+ Apps and Websites.

Hi. Tried to install istats but get an error message saying I don't have permission to write to the ruby folder?

Hello,
can you please fix the Beats battery script? It does not work properly: it is shown in this way.

The correct battery % is 60, but it show also another number.

Thank you so much

@wesbar
try

sudo gem install iStats

Let me know how this goes. I've had trouble with it on catalina


@sacco
Would you mind helping me out with this?
Visit this thread I just made:
Fixing AQT's Bluetooth Widgets

Hi. No joy with that either although it does get further. Get the attached message?

Try follow this guide, specifically the one about "Gem Errors"

Careful to follow them closely and search up anything you doubt

I'm not too experienced with the Terminal so I bet that'll help more than I can. It appears II got mine working purely by chance after tearing several files and stuff apart

Running Mojave here. Getting an issue while trying to install Gem iStats for game mode widget that I don't have root permissions. Very strange since I have an admin account. Any recommendations?

@thomascanndrum

Did you get any error messages?

@platterfoot

Open "Script Editor" on your mac, and make a new document.

Put this script in and run, tell me what number shows up

if application "Spotify" is running then
	tell application "Spotify"
		try
			if player state is playing then
				set sName to (get name of current track)
				set sArtist to (get artist of current track)
				
				if (length of sName) > 25 then
					set sName to text 1 thru 22 of sName & "..."
				else
					set sName to (get name of current track)
				end if
				if (length of sArtist) > 25 then
					set sArtist to text 1 thru 22 of sArtist & "..."
				else
					set sArtist to (get artist of current track)

After installing the latest BTT update I ran into the same issue as @platterfoot. I tried the script you posted and it returned "1". Also, now the "current song" is gone entirely on the Spotify app set.

I can't tell exactly whats wrong with the spotify widget but I can definitely tell that something is wrong.

Results helped, I'll probably rewrite the script as it looks a mess. will @mention again once I do but for now I'm quite busy with assessments

I'm having an issue going right a tab on chrome. Going left a tab is fine. Safari works fine with both. I'm on the newest version 3.5.8a on Mac 10.15.4 and Chrome Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit) with a MacBook Pro 16.

Received! will look into it though I'm quite busy right now.

So sorry for the late reply too!

Really loving this. One thing GoldenChaos has that I love is the 1Password button for fast access to 1password. I wonder if there's a way to add it to AquaTouch somehow/somewhere. Or is there a way I could add it myself manually so it's there sitting next to the TouchID button ready and waiting?

Also, and forgive me if this is already an option and I'm just missing it; is there a way to set the default behaviour when in an app that isn't supported to not show the gesture bar and just show the stock Touch Bar options? I'd rather not have to tap that little area before I see the stock options, especially since most of the apps I currently use don't have AT presets, but do have their own Touch Bar buttons.

Thanks!

Again, really impressed with this thing!!
