Description:

To appreciate this clock you need to see it move. Check the links for the 2 minutes duration video.

Revolutionary clocks comes in 4 sizes
HD, midi, mini & supermini

It is distinguished from other such clocks by the clock rings not having a fixed starting position but rather move as a function of time and likewise expand circumferentially as a function of time.

It is configurable and has vast potential if a graphics designer used their imagination. I have quickly uploaded it to demonstrate the scripts potential.

The lua script is explained in the c_c_s_explanation.txt file.

To install just move or copy the " .Conky " hidden folder to your user/home folder!

Remember to install the fonts!

to run, execute ' start_conky.sh '

To enable conky to start with the system go to " startup applications " and add in the " command " the file " .Conky/revolutionary_clock/...x.../start_conky.sh " where ...x... signifies the desired conky size e.g. rev_hd.


Enjoy!!!

Hi!

Whow! That looks really spectacular!

The data that your clock displays is exactly the kind of information that I would like to see on the screen while the desktop is locked, a.k.a. when the screen saver is active.

How can I use your clock a a screen saver? Thanks in advance

sorry for delayed answer.
I do not know how to run conky as a screen saver. I think it is outwith the remit of the conky programme.
if you have it running on the desktop there may be some screen savers that can project the desktop. and also give a changing background to avoid screen-
burn in.

install feh (an image viewer)

then add the following code to the start script to enable transparency effect as opposed to the black background.


[code]

feh --bg-fill `grep 'wallpaper=' ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc | tail --bytes=+11`

[/code]

-fill can be changed for other required parameters eg -scale
