Description:

KClock has 12 clock styles.

The KClock has the following features:
  • Timezones - You can have multiple clocks on your desktop, each set to a different timezone

  • Clock hands can be shaded (only if PIL or ImageMagick is installed, see below about auto detection).

  • Option to remove the second hand. KClock will automatically reduce the update frequency from superkaramba if the second hand is not show.

  • All clock hand images are cached, so reduce system overhead.

  • All clocks styles are in svg format and so can be resized to any size (see auto detection of Inkscape or librsvg below).

  • Extra clock styles can be added from the configuration menu. See below about adding the 'Color Clock Styles'.

  • Clock styles can be removed from the configuration menu.


  • Since this release is a bit bigger, I have had to remove the 'Color' clock styles Red, Green and Blue out into their own .gz file.

    To install these clock styles, download the .gz file 'Color Clock Styles', then go to the KClock configuration menu/editor and select 'Import Style...' and select the .gz file to import.

    or to do this manually you can extract the contents of the ColorClockStyles.tar.gz into the 'styles' folder in KClock.



    Auto Detection for extra features
    KClock will work with still work with the basic python libraries. But to get extra features and functionality working with KClock we surggest that you have some of these libraries/applications installed:

  • PIL (Python Image Library) - With this library KClock can draw the shading on the clock hands and rotate the clock hands with out seeing jagged edges.

  • Image Magick - This provides the same functionality as PIL, but is stlightly slower and more resourse instense grapthic library

  • PyQt - The Python QT library will provide a nicer interface to choosing the clock styles.

  • Inkscape - Inkscape is used to resize the png images without loss of quality from 250 by 250 pixels and higher.

  • librsvg - librsvg does basically the same as Inkscape, so if you do not have Inkscape installed you can install this lighter application instead.

  • pytz - To get the timezone working you will need to install the python library pytz. See http://pytz.sourceforge.net. If you have pyqt installed then the Configuration window can install this library for you into the KClock/libs folder.



  • Changelog:

    version 1.2a corrects a bug where kclock will not start up if you do not have some of the supported applications installed.

    Version 1.2b fixes a bug where the PIL image library is always imported even if you do not have the library installed.

    Version 1.2c fixes a bug where a non pyqt user tries to set a timezone.

    Version 1.2d may fix a syntax error when running python 2.4.

    Version 1.2e - On KClock startup if the current used style or the default 'chrome' style is removed, then the first available style will be used.

    Please help. I opened the console and run the suerkaramba with KClock.theme and I got this:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/home/johnny/Karamba_themes/KClock/KClock.py", line 16, in ?

    What does ImportError mean?

    It means that I couldn't load a python add-on KClock.py
    If this is a regular theme and doesn't use python
    extensions, then nothing is wrong.
    ------------------------------------------------------

    There was no theme on the desktop. What can be the reason?

    Ideally you should be running KClock using python version 2.5.

    I have uploaded a new version 1.2d.

    The KClock version 1.2d does not have the '()' in line 10 of AppLibFinder.py. I think you are getting this syntax error because their is a bug/feature in python 2.4 that does not allow an empty '()' after the class name.

    Please download the new version, then install and restart SuperKaramba

    You said in your post that you downloaded the 'c' version (you may have done a typo). So if not, you need to download the current 1.2d version.

    This web system does not allow me to reply to your last post...

    So to fix your error...

    The reason you get the error is that KClock is trying to load a non existent clock style. If this is the first time you are running KClock then it defaults to the 'Chrome' style. So you should have the folder '..../KClock/styles/Chrome'. You should also have the '.../KClock/styles' folder as well.

    I have uploaded a newer version, 1.2e. This new version will try to load in the current or default style, if for some reason the style is not available it will automatically read in the first clock style avaliable in the 'styles' folder.

    Thanks a lot! It's working now and I can enjoy it:) I can not configure it, because when I clik on the 'configure' there is no response, but never mind. I am happy, thanks once again. I like the red one...

     timezones?

    Hello -

    looks very nice :-) however... I enabled the timezones, it downloaded what it needed, but no matter what I select it always remains in my home timezone. The caption does change, however...

    any clues?

    Thanks,
    Flavio

    You may be having a problem with the pytz library, this library provides the timezone information and time.

    The best way to find out is to run superkaramba and kclock.theme in a console window.

    This will display any errors that have occured.

     Low Resolution

    Hello. I am having problem with the resolution of the clock. I have installed everything needed and when I run it from a terminal I get this:

    KClock: Python Image Library (PIL) found
    KClock: ImageMagick found version 6.2.4
    KClock: Inkscape found version 0.45.1
    KClock: PyQt is loaded
    KClock: Loaded!

    My python version is 2-5-1. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I think I found out what's wrong. Clock sizes between 100x100 - 200x200 do not look good while sizes larger than 200x200 look very good. Is there any way to make it work for lower resolutions?

    Thanks again.

    Hi

    The current download gives all the images in svg format. You can then use Inkscape to export these svg images to any size or resolution png files.

    This is a great widget. Thanks so much!! I did have one minor issue with it. The path to my clock images contains spaces so inkscape would bomb out when converting the svg file to the appropriate png file size. I just wrapped svgpath and pngpath in the inkspace commandline calls with quotes and that did the trick. I'm not sure if anyone else is having that problem. I think the files I changed were buildImages.py and Style.py.

    Thanks again for a great theme!!

    Hi,

    Thanks for clock, it is really nice, right now using the red theme....very very good...

    I have a question, please forgive me if it is too silly, I'm a newbie....

    The clock comes with a black background behind the clock, which looks kind of strange when I use a light colour wallpaper.

    Is there a way of not having the background at all???


    Thank you so much for your help

    Sorry, my mistake, i found on the superkaramba FAQ's that the problem with the black background is because karamba "doesn't like" solid colour wallpaper...I changed the wallpaper to a jpg and everything is now fine....

    brilliant clocks...really really nice

    Thanks

    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
