Is there a clock applet for gnome without using Evolution??
 
I am tired of being forced to use Evolution!

Sure, there is desklets and screenlets. Both have different clock applets with different styles and themes.

hth,

Thanks for the pointers but I should have been clearer. I'm looking for a panel app not a desktop app.

Right click on the panel, then on Add to panel, and Clock is one of the first things listed.

That one requires Evolution which I have removed.

It seems testing and unstable have what you are looking for.

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/alarm-clock-applet

I quickly tried to backport it but it depends on a newer version of debhelper than what is in lenny.

You could just install it from source. Upstream is here: http://alarm-clock.pseudoberries.com


Cheers,

Evo2.

That one is not a regular display clock but it is an alarm-clock. All I want is a simple digital clock for the gnome panel that will run without Evolution.

I'm thinking there might be a java applet that I have not found yet?

Thanks for the pointer.

By the way, I am running Fedora 12 now, moved off of Debian, problems with the browser accessing my online bank.

So it won't display the time?

Evo2.

If you set the 'Alarm time', it will show you time remaining or alarm time. Not a simple clock display. Nice tool but no what I am looking for.

You can use the existing Gnome clock applet and leave Evolution installed without being forced to use it. In fact, you can eliminate any signs of Evolution's existence including the panel application launcher as well as any menu items pointing to it. If you don't know how to do this, I can run you through it.

Cheers, Lou

I tried to remove Evolution using 'rpm --nodeps blah' for the three Evolution rpms. After that the clock panel app stopped working.
