Applets...

Post by tenfoot »

Have been using LM since v3.0 Cassandra and since the demise of Gnome v2 have been a fan of Mate. Currently using "Maya" with Mate. One of the Gnome applets I use frequently is the clock which has the ability to configure different timezones.

Now, I feel it is time for a change and when the stable version of LM 17 is released I will probably install Cinnamon. Been having a look at it this a.m. and like it very much. I was delighted to find that there is a World Clock Calendar applet. Further investigation led me to the Time Zone website and I downloaded the csv version. Now I'm lost :-( When I do install Qiana-Cinnamon, how do I deal with the timezone database? Should I have downloaded the csv version? If not, what should I have done? Although not a deal breaker, the ability to be able to see the time in different parts of the world is definitely something I would like to do.

Hi Tenfoot, I can't find the applet you are talking about...
Here the list of applet : http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets

I know in Firefox there is an add-on with time zone clock.

I don't know about applets, but this website is great.

The Personal World Clock allows you to select up to 25 of your favorite locations and displays the time at these locations on a separate page.

Hi Don_Pedro

Thanks for your reply.

I found the World Clock Calendar applet by going to the Applets Menu and clicking on Get More Applets, which downloads about 167, among which is World Clock Calendar.

Don't want to use the Firefox addon, unless absolutely necessary.

Hi austin.texas

Thanks for your reply.

I hadn't realised that I could select favourite locations to be saved to a separate page. If all else fails, I may do that.

Perhaps I didn't explain myself clearly enough in my original request..

I installed the World Clock Calendar applet, expecting to be able to configure it as one can for the Locations part of the Gnome/Mate Calendar which alows me to click on the icon on the Panel and open Locations and configure Locations in different time zones and see the total list of those area which I have configured to be present at any time by clicking on the icon.. It appears, however, that the World Clock Calendar applet doesn't provide this convenience.

When I click on the World Clock Calendar icon on the Panel and choose Configure, a window opens on which there is one entry: Co-Ordinated Universal Time. If I go to the World Clock Calendar time zones website and then choose a location, I can find no way to add it to the applet. Is it not possible or amI being particularly obtuse?
