PostPosted: Sun 07 Nov 2010, 18:00    Post subject:  PupClockset-2.3
Subject description: Multi-format clock manager
 

Recommended OS
Puppy Linux with gtkdialog4 (0.7.21 or greater)

Supported Window Managers and Panels
FBPanel, Fluxbox, IceWM, JWM, LXDE, LXPanel, Tint2, Xfce4
(and Openbox WM, when linked to a supported panel)

Purpose and Base Features
The digital-tray clock, which is a common feature of many window managers and panels, can display time and date in multiple formats based on strftime specifications. PupClockset automatically detects the active window manager or panel, and provides an intuitive interface for changing the clock format and font attributes. Program access is by Puppy Menu->Desktop->(Desktop Settings)->PupClockset, or by a single mouse-click of the tray clock in FBPanel, IceWM, JWM, LXDE, LXPanel and Tint2. Quick links are provided to the Osmo personal organizer, Puppy set-time tool, and Psync.

PupClockset strftime specifiers
Set 1 - %l:%M %p
Set 2 - %I:%M:%S %p (or %r)
Set 3 - %a %l:%M %p
Set 4 - %a %d %b %l:%M %p
Set 5 - %H:%M (or %R)
Set 6 - %H:%M:%S (or %T)
Set 7 - %a %H:%M
Set 8 - %a %d %b %H:%M

%a - Abbr. weekday name
%b - Abbr. month name
%d - Two-digit day of month
%H - Hour of the day, 24-hr
%I - Hour of the day, 12-hr
%M - Minute of the hour
%p - Meridian indicator, AM/PM
%S - Second of the minute

Caveats
1 - PupClockset supports standard configuration files of the IceWM, JWM and Fluxbox window managers, and the default panel profiles of FBPanel, LXPanel/LXDE and Tint2, but does not support the variance of modified or non-default panel profiles.

2 - Many panels support strftime specifiers for the multi-format display of time and date, but may not uniformly support the Pango Markup Language for the enhancement of font attributes

3 - The Openbox window manager has no built-in panel or clock, but is frequently enhanced by FBPanel, LXPanel, Tint2, or secondary dock plug-ins.

4 -The Fluxbox window manager typically works well with PupClockset, but at times Fluxbox can be a little temperamental when responding to the restart command if multiple additional applications are active on screen. Consequently, you may want to limit the number of background applications when changing the clock.

5 - By default, a mouse-click of the tray clock will open PupClockset, or you can set this option to open a small pop-up calendar if minixcal is installed.

6 - PupClockset does not support the clocks of the Cinnamon, Enlightenment, KDE or Mate desktop environments.

Nice job. I made an icewm-only version of this to put into Puppeee and Fluppy. Thanks! This solves an annoying problem.

Great job on PupClockset-1.0

this takes care of constant hassle of changing 24hr clock to 12hr clock which I prefer. I had enough of the so called military time many years ago in service of my uncle (sam)

regards

Bert, Sir Jasper, yarddog

Thanks for the kind words. A slight update will be available soon that adds support for kirk's Fatdog64.

Edit: After a closer look, it seems Fatdog64 uses a modified version of LXPanel which PupClockset does not support.

In response to recent interest expressed on the Lucid thread, a new version of PupClockset (v. 1.1) will be uploaded in a day or so. It will feature several enhancements, including implementation of the Pango Markup Language in FBPanel, allowing one to easily change font attributes of the panel clock.

Thanks

bodbozzle,

When PupClockset changes the clock format, the last command is the one which restarts the current window manager or active panel. This command is the same one used by other programs that must restart the window manager. In my testing, I have not experienced a problem with disappearing icons, but I have noticed that some window managers can be temperamental when responding to the restart command if multiple other programs are currently active on screen. Unfortunately, I don’t have an EeePc for testing Puppeee, but you might post your question on the Puppeee forum thread. I’m sure Jemimah will be happy to address your problem.

Thanks for the report.

Thanks radky,
- and for the app.
Not really a big problem at all, and jemimah seems to keep a special version for puppeee/ fluppy.
