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.

    Is this project discontinued? Do you know if someone is trying to make it work in KDE4?
    Thank you.

    It's been on hold. I have moved over to xfce, since I found the earlier kde 4.0 a pain to use. I will start getting KClock working on kde 4..

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
