How to put date/time in window titlebar?

Postby dajare on Thu Jun 14, 2012 3:38 am

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but not sure where is the best place to post (sure sign of a newb...) --

I would like to be able to have the current time/date (or at least the time) displayed in the titlebar of the active window. I know several ways of doing this in Windows XP, but despite web searching in all the ways I can think of, I can't find a linux-ish solution for this.

I'm running LM 12 LXDE, if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help with this!

Moved here by moderator

The window manager on LXDE is Openbox, so you would have to look for a way to do this with Openbox. I'm not confident you can do this easily however.
