This is a (hacky) fork of KDE's digital clock, so it looks like the old BeClock kwin effect (

It also have a "flash" effect every hour (when the clock clicks XX:00).

You can:
Modify the ring's colors
Disable/Enable the flash
Add a background image of your distro (or any image you want, even remote images).

I want to make it more configurable, so if you have any suggestion for making it more appealing, please tell me (it will depend of my abilities as programmer :) )

Note: if when adding the date the text doesn't appear vertically centered, resize it a little until you like their positions.

9 excellent hi, can you add an option to adjust the digital clock font size? and to hide the digital clock?

9 excellent The only thing I can ask for as I don't see it is to adjust the size of the font for the date that appears on the clock

+Hey. Thanks for this addon! If you don't have anything better to do, I have some non-vital suggestions: 1. Make it so that if I set both (number's) text color and text shadow to transparent, then I can only see the clock-circles. 2. Make the gap between timezone and clock be adjustable (size in pixels). 3. Make the thickness of (each of) the circles be adjustable (size in pixels). 4. Make the gaps between the circles themselves be adjustable (size in pixels). 5. Make the central unused space be adjustable (size in pixels). 6. Unimportant: Ideally there could maybe be a color-choosing popup or dialog. Ideally KDE would have something built-in for this. Similar to this maybe: I have a few more ideas, but those are even more niche aesthetic preferences.
