Gnome 2.22 clock in ubuntu 7.10

Gnome’s new clock is great.  It lets you set extra clocks for other timezones.

For people posting on international forums or chatting with for people from all around the world this is useful.

You can download a .deb file here.  Most people will need the i386 one.

Double click the file to install it.

First thing to do is removing your clock from the top panel. Right-click it and choose “remove from panel”.

Then right-click the top panel and choose “add to panel”.

Add the “international clock”.

Right-click the clock and press “preferences”.

In the “locations” tab you can add other timezones.

Besides clocks from other time zones, the applet will also show where it’s night and day (look at the shade).

After 1 minute of messing with it mine looks like this:

    It appears from your final screenshot that you have managed to make your gnome panel transparent w/o causing icons on the panel to be transparent as well.

    I have tried getting this but it seems impossible with compiz. How did you do it?

  2. Cool. Thank you. What will happen when updating to 8.04, which has this as standard?

    I don’t know.

    I don’t think there will be a problem.

    I will be doing a clean install of hardy, which is preferred to an upgrade.
