funny.. I've never seen this before, neither with styleclock nor with mplayer, so I don't think I can do much about it. Looks like a fscked up graphics driver to me, but all in all I'm clueless. - Jul 17 2004

What happens when you run "appletproxy styleclock"? Any unresolved symbols? - Jul 17 2004

Let me guess.. are you using Gentoo?

Please try this slightly modified version and tell me if it makes a difference: http://fred.hexbox.de/styleclock/styleclock-0.2.1.tar.gz

Apart from that it would be always interesting to know if you have the same problems with similar programs, like gltrash or something. - Jul 17 2004

Hiding the minute hand is actually the only option which works currently. But it's not checked in the script of the plain theme. For the moment, you can simply copy the main.js from the crystal theme over to plain.

Changing colors is planned already.
I also want to add a very simple timer/alarm clock. - Jul 16 2004

Depends on what you call "small". Analog clocks are just nonsense below a certain size. But you can also create digital themes for it. You just need bitmaps of each number.
And I could add an option to place the date either at the bottom or on the right side - this will leave more vertical space for the clock on horizontal kickers. - Jul 15 2004

The clock on the screenshot is scaled down from a 128x128 image. It doesn't look *that* horrible in my eyes.

It is in fact a problem when the image is getting too small, because all the little details are gone then, so it might make sense to provide special images for smaller sizes.

But SVG has the same problem. They also don't look better if you scale them down too much. So you'd also have to provide different SVGs for different sizes - no benefits compared to Bitmaps.

The other problem is that KSVG is part of kdegraphics, not kdelibs. OpenGL support on the other hand is in Qt already and libkjs belongs to kdelibs.
I just don't want a simple clock to depend on hundreds of libraries.
Plus, last time I checked, KSVG was simply not usable by other programs. - Jul 15 2004

I haven't used d-bus so far, but when the new bluez daemons start to use it, we'll surely use d-bus where appropriate.
If you have some specific ideas regarding d-bus or whatever we can discuss it on the mailinglist :] - Jan 08 2004
