PostPosted: Sun 15 Jan 2017, 06:33    Post subject:  Any replacement for xonclock?  

Desktop clock, analog, no compositing, any ideas?

With Pwidgets found xonclock, however it dies with:

[xcb] Unknown sequence number while processing queue
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
xonclock: ../../src/xcb_io.c:274: poll_for_event: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_threads_sequence_lost' failed.

-most every time, so
unless there's some trick to get it working under JWM
(..and alike, OpenBox appears to work with xonclock Confused )
I'm looking for some replacement to it.
If possible without the need to install compositing manager
just to get the clock face to be displayed in a normal manner.
Cairo clock, different desklets, etc. depend on compositing.
OCD-dock has clock as desklet, no source available unfortunately.
pmck has some problems with flickering and conflicts screeny,
buici-clock flickers also, when uncovered by window.

Maybe I have overlooked some app/widget?
All suggestions are welcome..


system is TahrPup605 (32bit), on screenshot modified Buici-clock.

I fixed xonclock for libpng16 and also fixed the rox desktop issues. You'll have to compile it yourself. You may have to run autoreconf to regenerate a sane configure script.

Thanks for reply..

..@ 01micko - no different about xcb issues, still dies the same way Sad

..@ smokey01 - for some reasons these tend to "fall asleep" ..sometimes

..@ musher0 - this source needs a lot of work to turn it into something usable , while exercise of cairo could do some good in the long run.. Rolling Eyes

Hello torm.

If it can be of any help, here is my config file for tzclock to get you started.
Unzip in /root and restart your tzclock.

Then right-click on the clock, go to preferences, set them or change them as
you like, save them. Then restart your clock, and that's it.

It shouldn't be "a lot of work", IMO: we do set preferences for a lot of other
apps too, don't we! Smile

IHTH.

Just to report back, xonclock works mostly fine on IceWM-BRANCH I've skipped to,
so not an issue for me anymore.. Confused



In the process found PClock ..no not the one preinstalled in Puppy Very Happy it's from
late 90's and appears to work with IceWM/JWM/OpenBox/ ( XFCE, with some complaints .. my bad, probably)
Maybe if I manage to clean it up a little will post it here..
So someone else could go and tinker with it some more.

My favorite is Cairo Clock - https://github.com/stephane/cairo-clock - but unfortunately it appears to no longer be maintained, and hence the minute hand does not update properly on more recent Linux versions (Puppy included).

Oddly, though - Cairo Clock is included in both Screenlets and Cairo Dock - both of which work flawlessly as of late. If I were smart enough, I'd strip out the guts (bin? script? py?) and transplant into the basic, stand-alone cairo-clock install.

Cairo Clock has a nice preferences GUI, and I've made/collected a nifty set of clock faces and hands over the years... so not willing to give up on it quite yet.

pclock v0.13.1/modification-01


Precompiled binary is for TahrPup605(32bit) and pet package installs to /root/my-applications/
with some scripts in "bin" and all else to "pclock-retro" folder.
Font and .desktop file are provided and will install to usual locations.
Settings window uses GtkDialog4 and should appear by right-clicking on the clock.
README-modified-version may have some more detailed information.


Modified source and original textfiles are included in the package.
In a way it is a basic blueprint of what I would, as a user, expect from the app
..not how it should be written, I don't have these skills.

There may be updates for Gtk2 look, as it has independent rc from global theme,
or some extra clock xpm-s - over the time.

PS. Settings window "look" is just a quick replacement, at the moment,
at least until I get "comboboxtext" widget working as it should..
( -menuitem refuses to follow cursor up if any xy is set in the theme,
maybe there's a bug, I don't know Sad )
Mousewheel on theme name can change themes.
Tooltip delay is intentional, set in gtkrc to 4000msek.
Middle mousebutton "action" is not configured, just add some command to
/root/my-applications/bin/xtra-cmd2 script.

I think Cairo Clock would expect compositing manager?

However some of it's derivative works look pretty cool,
nevermind the system load and dependencies... Rolling Eyes
