How can I put a clock on my desktop WITHOUT using Conky? Any ideas?

Hi,

maybe pwidgets-2.3.1.pet is the tool you need?

Too big? Pwidgets used to need Conky. Still true?

I don't know if it uses conky because i dont know what conky is. I use pwidgets on my Lazy Puppy 528 (Lucid based) and on my puppy 421. I think my old muppy 08.3 has got conky - but i am not sure.

289kb is too big? Sorry. Shall i delete the attachements?

How about the elegant xclock. Launch it in console...so you see how nice it is. It should accept the tuning parameters...if you want to chase them from the net. Make launching script for it in /root/Startup and you get it to the desktop automatically. It installs to the /usr/bin/xclock

For tuning. Place next rows to the end of the /root/.Xdefaults:
Code:
xclock*background:   LightSteelBlue
xclock*secondColor:   Red
xclock*minuteColor:   green
xclock*hourColor:   purple


And run in console: xrdb -merge .Xdefaults

You get the idea. There should be somewhere explanation what colours the xclock accepts.

Here Dave.. something to play with...

Code:
# ROX_DESKTOP=`xwininfo -root -tree | grep 'ROX-Pinboard' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 2`
# xonclock --window-id="$ROX_DESKTOP" --position=TOP-RIGHT


Also you can edit /root/.xonclockrc
