Re: [xfce4] How can I change appearance of analog clock on xfce-panel?

We had that question back with MX-14, and ToZ helped us out. In our case, we wanted to change the foreground (=fg) color from default black to white, so we created the file ~/.gtk-2.0/gtkrc with the following contents:

style "myclock" {
fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
}
class "XfceXfceClockAnalog" style "myclock"

If you were interested in a color change, you could copy this and just change the hex code to another color such as red #ff0000. Hex codes and colors are easy to find with a web search.

For any other kind of change, you'll have to wait for someone else to come along...

Tks so much!

The main aim is to make the analog clog looks more clearly. So I had downloaded the source package  of xfce4 panel, then I made changes in clock-analog.c file. In addition, with your answer, this is what I received^^ :

I use that clock too, though I get laughed at by my fellow Devs...

If you'd rather have an analog clock on your desktop, you might try TzClock.  I have it set to show up on all desktops, but not the panel, making it quite convenient.  Alas, it doesn't save its settings by default, but if you run it from a terminal as TzClock -t it will create ~/.tzclockrc, store its settings there and use them in the future.  (Alas, that option's undocumented, but I found out by emailing the author.)  If you need, you have it show four clocks, in different time zones, act as a stopwatch or alarm clock and so on.  I've only used it with one time zone and no alarms, so I don't know how good they are, but it's worth mentioning them.

Good suggestion! but I found the native analog clock of xfce is more suitable for long time, somehow I can't explain although TzClock is very cool!
