KDE Improvement

Homepage:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  3388
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 =)

 Nice work

Hello!

I like your clock very much and I'm often using it - but I have one idea that shouldn't take much time to implement: What about something like popping up every hour for a specified amount of seconds? And some kind of blending in and out smoothly would be very nice. And (I know I'm anoying) a third ring for seconds should be implemented instead of the second-bar :) But thank you very much for the nice job right here :)

Greetings!

Hi, sorry for the delay.
I've implemened the soft in/out (wasn't too hard ;-) but before releasing i'd like to know more about the intention of conditional showups.

Do you really just want to see it every full hour or would might be a dbus connection to be used with eg. kalarm rather fit you?
(so you could configure arbitrary times to show and/or hide yourself and also use it from other scripts?)

First, thank you very much for the answer!

It's nice to hear that you got the fade-in/-out allready working right now, very cool! :)

and for me it would be enough just seeing it popup every hour or so, the other thing you suggested seems very complicated and i think it would be an overkill for your app...

anyhow, still very fascinated by the design of your clock and the integration in my desktop - thanks for coding it!

Greetings!

actually a dbus slot would be "simpler".
the reason is that otherwise i'd have to add some interface/ruleset on when to activate (every hour, 1minute before TV news, when tea is ready, ...) while the dbus slot could abstract that and thus be more flexible and straight forward ("it's a clock and not a calendar")

the drawback on you would be to either have to run kalarm or add a cron job or "at". the gain would be the mentioned flexibility (why i'd tend to this solution)

 problem

i love you clock, hoever I have some problems with it.
In Dynamic mode (awesome idea) when i get to the corner the focused windows becomes completely black (and so does the panel, if the focused window is maximized).
An Alt+Tab solves the problem, but it is pretty annoying. Also, it would be nice if it was possible to activate the corner animation only, say, once every 3 seconds. This could prevent the clock to fade in and out when you continue pulling the pointer in the bottom (if you accidentally try to push the pointer ahead the corner the clock will disappear and reappear)

Updated, works perfectly now. It is awesome.

Small hints:
- possibility to set animation speed when in Dynamic mode?
- possibility to set the position even when in Dynamic mode: I, for example, have the panel on bottom, and Beclock is activated by left-bottom corner. However, if I didn't have the panel, Beclock would be somehow 30-40 pixels above the bottom margin. I'd like it to be exactly in the corner. (Bad explanation skills I know)
- In Static mode, position with 0-0 offset s still not in the very corner.

@speed: too slow or too fast?

@area: the clock is supposed to ignore struts (what is set by docks) what works for me (ie. the panel is covered, clock is always in the corner)
@misposition: this sounds like the very same problem and pot. a bug in (your?) kwin library/headers.

Do you use a multimonitor setup? (there're reported strutting errors, don't know whether this impacts, but the call to "ScreenArea" is correct)

It should not take a couple of seconds but i can verify that the time is updated _after_ the show, gonna fix that

speed: IMHO it is a lil too fast

area & misposition: may very well be a bug in my kwin. Do you know what I should look for?

beclock.cpp:138
"const QRect desktop = effects->clientArea( ScreenArea, screen(), effects->currentDesktop() );"
if you place

qDebug() << "BECLOCK:" << desktop;

behind it, recompile beclock and start kwin from a terminal (konsole: "kwin --replace &", the & forks it so you can reuse or close the konsole) you'll get the used rect printed (at least in the static mode). it should match your screen geometry.

 Removing Always on TOP option

First of all, thanx for this ultimate clock.

actually that's no "option" but purpose of this clock.
if you want a clock on the desktop layer you should use a plasmoid instead which has the advance of working w/o the requirement of compositing

 one more thing...

... just another little problem:
the clock does not refresh as it should, it takes a couple seconds (Dynamic mode). So, for example, if I hover in the lower left corner I see 14:00. A couple seconds later it refreshes to 14:07.

Hi, The clock looks very nice with my KDE ghost theme. But I get only one analog ring. The screen shot on your page shows two rings. How do I enable another ring?
I am using no background picture (just black screen).

Thanks.

Sorry. posted too soon. didnt realize how the ring works. I happened to install the clock at 12pm. so didnt get hour ring only the minute ring. Now it is ok. I get two rings: one for hour one for minute.

One suggestion: when we choose 'rotate for seconds', is it posssible to add another seconds ring that grows instead of rotating the digital date/time display?

I think that would make a better visual.

yes it is?!

works with the trunk at least, maybe you could elaborate on _why_ it's not working for you.

--> do you get compile errors about kephal?

a) that's probably a distro bug (the header should be there)
b) latest version checks for missing headers and skips kephal (multiscreen) support in case.

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.
