dictating my time-zone

Always find my-self counting the seconds of system-uptime to make sure my clocking operation proceeds smoothly, also works profoundly well as a hard-core-fire-wall for my system.

However, have forgotten to tell my conky-system to display time and date in a discrete manner so I wont distract my-self from work, just to keep it up there in my sub-counscious-mind.

Any ideas?

Re: dictating my time-zone

I have no idea what the question is here.

Can you state it more plainly please?

Re: dictating my time-zone

Perhaps he wants his conky clock in seconds since the UNIX epoch?

  • Subject: dictating my time-zone

  • the seconds of system-uptime

  • display time and date

Three different things also "discreet".

IF this is possible, yes. That would be incredible use-full. Not kidding, you got any ideas?
EDIT: btw, I am sorry, but please don't assume gender, that is way over my head.

I think:

${time %s}

may be what you're after then - if I am understanding that correctly. From the strftime man page -

 %s     The number of seconds since the Epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 (UTC). (TZ)

Re: dictating my time-zone

EDIT:  I swear that ^ was not there when I responded.

UNIX epoch: ${time %s}

The command you have: ${time %s}

Now the in a discrete manner is a personal thing and depends if you want it in a conky by itself like a one line conky top middle.

Scrot and the conky

# pkill -xf "conky -q -c /media/5/conky/time.test.conky" &
own_window yes
own_window_type normal
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky
own_window_colour 000000
own_window_class Conky
own_window_title TimeUp-EPOCH Conky

minimum_size 250 0
maximum_width 250

gap_x 00	# l|r
gap_y 10	# u|d

alignment tm

use_xft yes
xftfont monofur:bold:size=10

xftalpha 1.0

override_utf8_locale yes

draw_shades yes
default_shade_color 000000
draw_outline no
default_outline_color 000000

default_color DCDCDC # Gainsboro

border_inner_margin 5
border_outer_margin 0

background yes
use_spacer none
no_buffers yes
double_buffer yes

update_interval 1

TEXT
${uptime}${alignr}${time %s}

discrete enough?

S11 has been offtopic ${times %s} times, but not today.  tongue
