KDE Improvement

Downloads:  3528

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

tar -xJf beclock-kwin-fx.x.y.txz
cd beclock-kwin-fx
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

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

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


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

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

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

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

- 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 =)

Hi, cool idea.
Is it possible to make it triggerable moving the mouse on a screen edge?

i'm not really sure.
basically toggling the clock on a screencorner/edge mouse contact is possible, but i cannot say wheter i can make that a "trigger" (the active borders use delays and don't send events when you leave them, so i'd have to check the mouse position and poll the mouse diring the active effect.. hmmm...)

maybe :-)

Widget style & KWin deco is Bespin (surprise)

Arora uses the Default preset, i bound the Konsole preset (ships with bespin) to konsole (and some others)

The wallpaper is a 5 minute product, i don't think that i uploaded anywhere...

The titlebar icons are similar to the ones shipped with bespin (but older)

The panel is not plasma (nor released public)

How can I get the titlebars to the (left) side of the windows? I like that :)

use the bespin decoration, choose "network compatible titlebar orientation ;-)" in "layout"

i think there's so far no other kwin deco to do this.

 Autohide when mouse is near?

 by genericity on: Jan 6 2010

Good job!

I think one possible option is to auto-hide the clock when the mouse is nearby. So to see something under the clock, you just move the mouse over.

unfortunately this would require the effect to poll the mouse position (aka - "things you want to avoid")

so it would be possible, but a better option _could_ be to invert the dynamic mode, i.e. hide the clock on active corner hits.

maybe kwin could propagate the scene (i.e. an eventfilter target) for 4.5...

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.
