Sources for swisswatch


Does anyone know where I can find sources for the Swisswatch program. I'm having no luck searching the interwebs. Apparently the google-fu is not strong in me today.

(Swisswatch is an old desktop analog clock for X. It's old, small, and unobtrusive, but not quite so plain as Xclock. I had it on the Debian box that is now a Slackware box, and would like it back. It was in Debian's repos, but then so is everything else.)

Try this link http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool....6.orig.tar.gz, or this one https://packages.debian.org/sid/x11/swisswatch.

Thanks. I got it. Looks like I have a little dependency resolving to do, but I'll make it work.

Maybe search term "swisswatch X11" may help. or not.

I installed it through apt and checked the man pages. Kinda neato. I also noted that certain files besides the ones in user/share were in
/etc/X11/apps-defaults/SwissWatch.

Hence my search term suggestion.

[I'm puzzled. I'm certain that earlier tonight there was a post here that pointed me towards a Debian source. I even downloaded the file and tried to install it, then ran into dependency issues, so I tabled it for later. Now that post and my reply seem to be gone.

Code:
$ ls swiss*
swisswatch_0.6.orig.tar.gz

swisswatch-0.06.orig:
ChangeLog     HandOrMark.c  Makefile         MarkP.h       SwissWatcP.h   TableConvert.c
Hand.c        HandOrMark.h  Makefile.simple  README        SwissWatch.ad  TableConvert.h
Hand.h        HandP.h       Mark.c           SWatch-co.ad  SwissWatch.c   swisswatch.c
HandOrMarP.h  Imakefile     Mark.h           SWatch.ad     SwissWatch.h   swisswatch.man
Maybe I'm on alternative LQ!]

I did try searching for "swisswatch linux" and "swisswatch linux sources," but I did not try "swisswatch X11." I'll give it a go.

On the other hand, I've seen a lot of links to sites about watches made in Switzerland.

How the heck did that happen?

Did I mess up or what?

I shall retire to sleep in a confus-ed state. Perhaps tomorrow will bring enlightenment.

Next time ask a moderator to fix things please. BTW you also asked the same question two years ago: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ch-4175439226/

Jeez, I completely forgot about that. My apologies and thanks for the reminder. I shall remember to use the search more.

As for asking a mod to fix things, it was late in my part of the world; I didn't know what exactly was broke and was too tired to try to track it down.

Hi frankbell

I just tried swisswatch. Funnily enough I just wrote a desktop analog clock in C, but be aware I am not a programmer, however my clock does seem to use less resources than swissclock. It hasn't the classic look of the SSB clock but you can configure size, colours and geometry in the rc file to get it looking similar, though without the large ball on the second hand.

If you are interested you can find it on my github page. https://github.com/01micko/pmck. Sorry, no manpage or slackbuild as yet as I mainly wrote it as an exercise in cairo/xlib programming.

Cheers

I have updated my pmck program (poor man's clock) and it now has the ability to display a clock similar to the SBB clock. See my last post for the github link.

I'll take a look at it.
