Need tzclock for CentOS 6.2. Looked everywhere.


I am a Fedora user trying CentOS 6.2. It seems RHEL or its clones don't have a need for this little clock. My daughter is in Asutraila and I'm in Virginia so it's nice to know what time it is before I call her.

Thanks alot,
Hendomen

Download the 2.8.1 version source (previous GTK API) from tzclock.org then compile it for Centos 6.2?

# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck tzclock-2.7.5-1.fc12.<arch>.rpm

RHEL 6 / CentOS 6 : Fedora 12 based. The package just installs,
and appears in : Menu : Applications > Accessories > TimezoneClock

32bits http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu....fc12.i686.rpm
64bits http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...c12.x86_64.rpm

Thanks to all.

I took knudfl's idea and ran with http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...c12.x86_64.rpm

Works like advertized. Thanks knudfl.
