BeClock

Homepage:  Link
Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  3329
Submitted:  Dec 23 2009
Updated:  Mar 4 2012

Description:

A simple clock, implemented as KWin Effect

- This is NO plasmoid!
- You need active desktop FX to use this clock

** NOTICE **
For KDE 4.10 you'll have to obtain the version from https://sourceforge.net/p/bekwinfx/
(either through preferably git or a live tarball)

0.18 will not work on KDE 4.10

Installation:
---
tar -xJf beclock-kwin-fx.x.y.txz
cd beclock-kwin-fx
./configure
cd build
make && sudo make install
---
to activate or configure
- rightclick some titlebar
- say "configure..."
- click "all effects"
- filter for beclock
- check and maybe configure it.
- click apply


Advances:
- always on top
- input event dead (you can click through etc.)

Features:
- AM/PM or 24h digital display
- optional date display
- binary clock




Changelog:

0.18
----
- hometime support, ie you get one additional timezone to select which will appear as a dot in the analog rings only

0.17a
----
- yet another maintenance release, fixes 64bit (thanks to Raymond Wooninck for notice and a patch) and KDE 4.7 building
- hometime support comes later ...

0.17
----
- build fix
- show corner activated clock on countdown
- preselect local time format (24h ./. AM/PM)

0.16
----
- maintainance release for KDE SC 4.8rc1 compilation. No functional change.
- update on 2012-02-03: cmake janus compilation issues, no code change

0.15
----
- support for 4.8 (yes, doesn't disappear anymore)
- alpha support for GLSL 2.0 (the blendfunction was irrelevant since not used anyway - i fixed kwin to support 2.0 shaders on my box ;-)
- as an extra bonus a binary and a Maya inspired clock =)

-chime on the hour should be some "effect" every hour, it should but I didn't see yet, I wasn't there in that minute maybe:-)

open a terminal and enter
qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock getAttention 1

This should also happen on every hour change if you activate that option.

Now type
qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock countdown 10

When the countdown is done you get n attentions. If not, there's an issue with getting the texture translucent (ie. trying to use shaders while they're not supplied or not using shaders while they control the appearance)

"qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock getAttention 1" produce only the disappearing of clock, did you think that this is something that get attention?? :-)

It's supposed to perform a "pulse", ie. disappear and re-appear (several times in doubt)

Do you use the dynamic mode? (in doubt just post the BeClock settings from ~/.kde/kwinrc)

I think static, and the clock disappear and reappear after 4-5 seconds, no pulse, the config on my suse 12.1 it should be this
/home/pla/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc
[Effect-BeClock]
24h=true
Align=34
AttentionPeriod=9000
Background=255,255,255
Chime=true
CountDownAttention=16
DatePattern=yyyy-MMM-dd
ElectricBorders=
Font=Sans Serif,9,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0
Foreground=46,114,25
HideOnHover=true
Screen=-1
ShowDate=true
ShowDayOfWeek=true
ShowDigits=true
ShowRings=true
ShowSeconds=false
Size=320
Type=0
X=20
Y=20

thanks:-)

Yes, and yes there is - technically ;-)

> AttentionPeriod=9000
The value controls the period, ie 0.001/Hz - in other words, one "pulse" cycle lasts 9000 ms

Since the animation speed itself is static, this means "fade out - wait, wait longer - fade in"
Try to lower this value (the default is 3600, the minimum is 1500)

> CountDownAttention=16
So when the countdown finishes there will be 16 "pulses" within 2.4 minutes =)

ooookkk:-) it works, 16 events with 1500 ms for me is ok, but, where can I set the countdown or time when this will happen??

Nowhere, that's ununixish ;-)

You can cause a countdown whenever you want through dbus (there's afaik some plasmoid and i've a script/alias so i can "countdown m s" eg. from krunner, konsole or whatever. You could also create a kteatime clone, ie. a droplist with some preset timeouts.

I've added the chime to the setup (happens once per hour, but causes only ONE pulse) but you can use crontab or atq to schedule those pulses (and as many) whenever you want.

 beclock disappear

beclock 0.17 on opensuse 12.1 and kde 4.8.0, after some hours beclock disappear, as I was doing tests with "qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock getAttention 5" command and alarmclock, I was thinking it was related to it, but when I give the "qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock getAttention 5" command it worked and beclock appear and disappear 5 times, but after the last disappear didn't reappear any more.

there's just one state whether the clock is visible or not[1], there's likely been a collision in the counter (like chime ./. getAttention ./. countdown)

There's a shortcut to show/hide the clock - i think i defaulted it to shift+ctrl+f12 - at least that's configure here ;-)

[1] to answer your question: because the features grew on top of it ;-)

I have an opensuse 11.4 with kde 4.6, I have installed everything mentionned before like kde-workspace-dev ...
But I don't find how to compile it...

The current version won't compile for you anymore - but i guess moving a few lines into #ifdefs will do.

Please look a one of the source files (.h, .cpp) and drop me a private mail. I'll send you versions with version branching until it compiles - since i don't have 4.6 around, that's far easier than uploading half a dozen fails here ;-)

 timezone... great!!!!

Maaaanythanks :-) I'll ennjoy it when I will be abroad again :-)
it works well on kde 4.8.2,
as I undertood the dot is for the home or fixed time, the beclock is for the current where I am time, is it correct??
it seems ok, but in m y situation the dot is less visible than I expected, a solution could be a different color, or the inverted color of the circle....
Ciao Pier

 Add a dbus call to set timezone?

 
 by landice on: Jun 28 2012
 
Score 50%

I would like to suggest in addition of the timezone support beclock currently have, add a dbus call to set the timezone and adjust the displayed time according to it. I made some quick hack to do it in 0.18. With this dbus interface I can write a script to update the timezone using geoip city database, and have the script run automatically using networkmanager hooks. The net results is that everytime I travel to a new place, I simply connect to the network and beclock will automatically adjust to the local timezone.

Nice idea, but possibly "wrong" approach?

The "correct" solution would be
sudo ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern /etc/localtime

If you want to update beclock immediately just run
qdbus org.kde.kwin /BeClock countdown 0


Otherwise you'd get diverging timezone display/handling in your system - not sure whether that's what you want (you do have privileges when doing that from networkmanager, do you?)

I completely agree the timezone setting should be done in a more low level so more program can benefit from it. I decide to hack beclock mainly because it is THE clock I use, also I am unsure about the side-effect when changing /etc/localtime on the fly without logout/reboot. Anyway, It is just a suggestion, maybe it will inspire some more elegent solutions.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
