Edit:repacked the package. Added some theme/size hints..

__

Edit:
Found some programs tend to use "inactive" window state - when moved to another
desktop, so added "layer below" for the clock, to make it stick better to the wallpaper.. Confused

Also changed some namespace details for built-in clock face.
Should be easy now to export as clock_background.xpm from GIMP without
correcting with text-editor before compiling, .. I hope.

pclock-retro v0.13.1/modification-05

For now, it should be stated as test.. and I can't say more than it "appears" to work.
Replaced the scripts with internal methods to auto-store location and call the settings
window. I'm clearly missing the skills to write a proper code, so please have a look
at the provided source, if there's anything that needs to be fixed.

btw, gtkdialog(4) is not a real dependency, it could be replaced with anything that should
be started by right-mouseclick on the clock. Just place a link in
/root/my-applications/pclock-retro/bin/ and name it dialog1
Also, xwininfo/grep/awk are not used for detecting the location in this version.
As before, it can be started with commandline options or from the script
to ignore the stored location.

____________________________________________________________

pclock-retro v0.13.1/modification-06

Added current date display. Some skins to support that feature.
Vertical and horizontal location of the date can be set on commandline or
from the theme file. Theme file is a script, open as text and edit as needed.. Wink

Note!
This modification makes some changes to file locations.
To update to new version:
- open settings window of clock
- remove Pclock-retro link from Startup folder (if set)
- close the clock and exit settings window
- uninstall the old version with PPM (Puppy Package Manager)
- install new version


For more info please see /root/my-applications/pclock-retro/source/README-MODIFIED-version,
aside from file location changes there are new short/long options that can be used
for theme files.
Executable is now "on path" , so typing in terminal:
pclock-retro -h
..will also list them.
Clock has built-in skin and default settings, and it can run with or without extra options
from command.





Have a nice day Smile

Just add to:

Thanks for the pointers and the improvements Torm.

I installed pclock_retro_mod-04.pet after removing the earlier and then set it up using your code. Since I do not use a save file I have many of my .pets in an SFS file which I use with multiple Puppies, I did not want to modify any files which would override settings in the different Puppies.. Therefore I placed your code in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal3
Code:
<!-- Personally configurable options for JWM: these override default settings and theme settings -->

<JWM>

<Group>
<Class>PClock-retro</Class>
<Option>sticky</Option>
</Group>

</JWM>

Then I symlinked /root/my-applications/pclock-retro/themes/bc-02th to /root/Startup and change the values of /root/my-applications/pclock-retro/data/location-h and /root/my-applications/pclock-retro/data/location-v to place the clock in the lower right corner of my desktop. Works a treat, much better than my crude startup scripts. I like the dark ringed face better too. Will use the smaller faces on my laptops.

Cheers, J and Thanks again.

Edit: Now tested in Xenial, Stretch and Artful with the same SFS and all worked great

Thanks for reply, jrb

Updated the clock to version 06.
For now I think it would be the final version -where it comes to
features and file locations etc.
