BeClock

   0.18  

KDE Improvement

Score 93%
BeClock
zoom


Homepage:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  3352
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 =)

 BeClock fails to start in KDE

Just did the recent upgrade to KDE 4.5 from 4.4. BeClock was working just fine in 4.4. Now, when I try to start it I get an error message in the system tray Knotify:

"The following desktop effects could not be activated: BeClock"

Would a simple reinstall over the existing install work?

Please advise.

YES

The KWin effects are neither API nor ABI stable and actually run a version check to protect themselve.
So you MUST compile & link effects against the version you intend them to use with (including everytime you eg. update the svn trunk and the version number increases)

If you run kwin from konsole, you get a notion about this.

If it doesn't describe that there is a version conflict or issue then the version check is worthless. There is no notification to a user of what to do.

Now, please, can you guide me as to how to re-link the script to the appropriate version?

Thank you in advance.

Also, the version of BeClock didn't change between KDE versions in addition to the upgrade from 4.3 to 4.4 didn't require me to make any adjustment to any window effect including BeClock. No other window effects are having this problem.

well, beclock is not part of the built-in effects, so they "auto-update"

the effectlibrary version number might change whenever it feels like, that's not bound to the version major (so 4.3.5 -> 4.4.0 might have been stable, but 4.4.0 -> 4.4.1 not)

the kwin warning says exactly this (i think the notification doesn't does it? could. should., you can however redirect debug messages nearby anywhere, possibly into plasma as well, xorg used to have a debug terminal running back in the good old times :)

However, just (re)run make (or decompress, configure; cd build; make) && make install, then run "kwin --replace &" (restart kwin to reload the plugin library) - that's it.

 Re: rotating seconds

Hi,

just upgraded to the latest version and I like the rotating seconds option. Any chance of the option that the rings stay static and it is just the central text that rotates.

Thanks for a great KDE/kwin app.

Yes, it's konsole.
Decoration is bespin - konsole uses a (black) preset (which also triggers the matching decoration color)

However i think meanwhile more KWin decorations can actually do this.

 screen flickers

 
 by kalmar on: Feb 28 2011
 
Score 50%

hi, I have some (small) problems with beclock.

During pdf presentation (fullscreen), or fullscreen video the screen flickers (blinks) every time beclock updates (part) of screen. I have to switch off it (mean: hide with Ctrl+Shift+F12) to get rid of the screen disruption...

nouveau drivers here.

btw. I suppose Your theme is not based on plasma. What is the panel above then?

[desperately trying to replace plasma with sth lighter]

best regards

it's likely a driver bug - i assume you use fullscreen unredirection?
"kreadconfig -file kwinrc -group Compositing -key UnredirectFullscreen" - or check the setting in the GUI for KDE 4.6
Does it happen with both, GL & XRender backend?

I just learned that kwin wastes some CPU cycles in FS mode anyway since it doesn't collect "offscren" damage events, repaint requests.

4.7 will likely either not unredirect or entirely suspend compositing, depending on a hint on the window.

However there's few i could do to prevent this (neither the presence of a fullscreen client nor it's unredirection state is published to the effect plugins) -sorry :-(

About the panel: no, it's not plasma but a handcrafted Desktop Shell, never released.

Thanks for Your replay;

Hmm... It turned out to be only one-projector fault that just happened during my lecture on seminar ;-)

On my external lcd monitor I can't reproduce flickering, sorry then for bothering.

What a pitty, that this (Your?) desktop shell has never been unpublished....

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
