My Clock Ring Screenlet 0.3.3 is broken after updating to Ubuntu 11.04, maybe due to a different python version.

Error message:
File "./ClockRingScreenlet.py", line 135, in __setattr__self.__guiTimer = gobject.timeout_add(value, self.updateGUI)
TypeError: integer argument expected, got float

Fix:
Convert the "value" in line 135 to integer.

Diff:
135c135
< self.__guiTimer = gobject.timeout_add(int(round(value)), self.updateGUI)
---
> self.__guiTimer = gobject.timeout_add(value, self.updateGUI)

Still love it, though. Best regards,
Ole

This is what I've been looking for. Amazing clock, truly amazing!

A couple features I would recommend: add the settings to make each ring individual sizes

and

is there a way to make the seconds hand like a fluid moving block? rather than ticking?

Thanks!

It shouldn't be hard to add separate fields for each ring. I bet you could do it if you're willing to take a stab at it.

As for fluid motion, the script only runs once a second to update. To have a fluid movement, I believe the script would have to update hundreds of times every second, which would eat up your CPU. Of course, I may be wrong; all I know about screenlet python scripting is what I learned from modifying this.

Gruppler, thanks very much for the hour-ring fix and the additional features! This clock looks great on my desktops and it's fun to read.

Nice clockwork.
Can you provide me perhaps with the color settings as you've used in the first screenshot?

hi, first of all, LOVE IT. especially the 24hr face functionality.

i hope this isn't the same as Matiee's comment (didn't understand it perfectly), but i'm wishing that i could have the option for no hour block to be lit between 12midnite and 1am. I do think of it as 'zero' or 'new day, haven't completed one hour yet'. in other words, when i look at my cell phone right now which is set to 24 hour time, it says "00:52", not "24:52". is this making sense? is there an easy way i can reprogram clockring myself to reflect this?
thanks

Hi. Why don't you join the 3rd-party-screenlets team ( https://launchpad.net/~3rd-party-screenlets-team ) That way, you can work directly in bzr (after you change something, you run one line in terminal, and it's uploaded). Packages are made, so your users get updates via the package manager.

This is, by far, my favorite Screenlet. I wish that I had a clock like this for my wall!

I like being able to customize the colors and transparency as well as the size and space between the sections-- it really gives you so many options!

Thanks! :)

Thanks, I wish I had a physical clock like this too, preferably a watch. Again, I didn't not create this screenlet, I just modified it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here's my version of the ClockRing screenlet.
(don't care about the furiousmoon inside ;)

I didn't like the first blocks of the rings because they are useless (they are always lit). I think that the behaviour like shown in the image makes more sense.

I can send you my modified clockring if you care, so that you can update yours.

(I tell you because I find useless to upload it myself, for the third time, as it's mostly the same thing as the original, after all...)

Interesting idea! You're right, there are some superfluous blocks. However, I redisigned the layout based on the common analog clock. I like to be able to glance at it, see that one hour block is lit, and know that it's one o'clock.
