Description Matthew Miller 2001-08-05 20:09:45 EDT
The version of wmclock included with WindowMaker is less than ideal; it
should be replaced with the one from
http://www.ntrnet.net/~jmknoble/WindowMaker/wmclock/ .

One particular thing I like is that this version properly changes
background when you change themes, but there are other advantages as well.
The web site lists these:    

    * No klunky --withdrawn or -shape flag on the command line.
      Just start it up and it's dockable.
    * No arbitrary limits on the length of the command you can run
      when you click on wmclock. If you don't specify a command,
      wmclock doesn't complain when you click.
    * No zombies.
    * Improved aesthetics; no off-by-one errors in the pixmap.
    * Lots of code cleanups. This one is better quality.

Look in rawhide,.. You'll find WindowMaker-0.80.0-5 and wmix/wmapm/wmclock
the  3 apps will get rolled into one Uber rpm in the near future but thats what
I'll probably let go as shipable

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2002-02-14 23:40:53 EST
cool, i'll check it out.
Comment 3 Phil Copeland 2002-02-15 00:20:21 EST
Ack, forgot to mention rawhide rolls over (updates from the internal servers) at
03:00est,.. ie in 2 1/2 hours time
