Re: [gdm-list] more bling, please


The clock label is defined in section 8.2.4 here:

I do think that the theme documention is a bit light and could
use a lot more information about how to actually construct a
theme using the described tags.  Any help making section 8
of the documentation more clear/usable would be much appreciated.

Anybody with experience making themes who would like to help with


Note if you are using gdmgreeter, you can define a clock as follows
in the theme:

  <item type="label" id="clock">
    <normal color="#000000" font="Sans 12"/>
    <pos x="-20" y="-37" anchor="e"/>

The default GDM themes have such a clock.  Also gdmlogin shows a clock
in the menubar (on the right side).
My bad, I only use the ubuntu one :-) Is this documented? Because my fast search for "clock" didnt show it (could be because I was in a hurry).
Do you want a different or more elaborate clock in GDM?
Ah, yes, an analog clock would be nice.
