hello there again. it's me again, the newbie who asked on how to install cairo-clock theme. i tried typing sudo nautilus in the terminal and this is what it says:

"Nautilus-Share-Message: Called "net usershare info" but it failed: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare: cannot open usershare directory /var/lib/samba/usershares. Error No such file or directory
Please ask your system administrator to enable user sharing.

and one more thing.... "add and remove" (where could i find that?)"...please bear with me, i am really new here and i really wanna learn more about ubuntu. thanks!

Hi, Sorry to hear of your problem, This is a new one! The only thing I can think of at this point would be to remove "cairo-clock" in synaptic, open synaptic,
SYSTEM>ADMINISTRATION>SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER, type in cairo clock, And mark for complete removal, try that and see if it works,then if it does, Try reinstalling cairo-clock again,keep me posted as to the out come so I can keep tab's on the fix, thanks

I am sure you know who I am. I would like your permission to debianize your clock it is modded to go with the upcoming UE 2.4 theme you can see it here http://forumubuntusoftware.info/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1670 It has not been released to even my admin.

No no, my friend your English is fine, I understand now, how ever this "how to" is basically aimed at newbie's or anyone with a basic install,and is just an "in general""How to" but I am sure anyone that reads this now will also see it from your point! thanks for the feed back!

In my case, I downloaded version 2.0.8.tar.gz and then I made the deb for 64 bit version that I have installed after because I want to operate with my sistem in freedom without involving the root. in this
case i have my clock folder in home/.config/cairo-dock/extra/cairo-clock and drop the clock themes there, you can proceed to activate the clock in your dock, then you can move the clock where you want. Sorry for my english

It is not appropriate for those who do not install a stable version (deb)
