Can I click on the little time in the taskbar and not have Osmo pop up?

Hi, PappyPuppy

Simple: open file /root/.jwmrc-tray in your text-editor.

Third line from the bottom in that file; begins with "clock-format".

Then somewhere on the line, you have the mention "exec:". Change the
osmo executable after the "exec:" to whatever you like or need: BORG,
notecase, Xclock, oclock, whatever.

IHTH

Subject description: clock settings that came with Fatdog
 

When I installed Osmo, it changed that file and did not make a backup of the original so I cannot revert to the old settings. I've tried different exec: and Clock formats - I can change the format but I can never get the calendar and/or clock to pop up when I click on that area of the taskbar. If there is a reference describing the .jwmrc-tray file (specifically how to configure it for clocks), that would be good.

In musher0's Xenial 7.0.6, my .jwmrc-tray has:

<Clock format="%-m/%-d %l:%M %p">PupClockset</Clock>
When I move the mouse pointer over the clock thing at the bottom right of the screen, a yellow box pops up with text saying
"Mon 04 Jun 2018 08:32:44 AM EDT"
Left or tight clicking does the same.

Hm, maybe my saved settings have changed something re the clock?

Subject description: I have some, but perhaps one or two are missing
 

I have time, date, and a shortcut to cal, but the shortcut says bin/cal and there is no executable named cal. That might be the problem. Perhaps I can download cal, and then exec to it or somehow configure it to pop up when I click on the time.
I have the same yellow box behavior even if I configure it with some formatting and minixcal (I need to check if I have minixcal). Also, I should try using exec: before minixcal. It's confusing how this stuff is supposed to work as my original file is gone. I may be able to look on another fatdog machine later today.

One of these days soon, I'll boot up another machine and see what it has for the <Clock ... in that file for the taskbar. Should help. I can live without it for today though.
