I got this question on Google+ from +John Kerr Jr and want to answer here for more detail
Looks great. I've been enjoying Vsido. I have always preferred Fluxbox. One question though, how can I add the clock and date in tint2 in the upper right corner?
Hi +John Kerr Jr and thanks!
Tint2 on VSIDO is setup from /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers directory. The panel (upper right system tray) file is /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers/tint2rc. The bottom tint2 launcher is /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers/tint2rcallbtm
Edit /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers/tint2rc as root ... and under # Panel and line 28 you need to add a C so it looks like this
panel_items = FSC
Then under # Clock you can change the formats to your desired style
time1_format = %H:%M
time1_font = sans 8
time2_format = %A %d %B
time2_font = sans 6
clock_font_color = #ffffff 76
clock_padding = 4 4
clock_background_id = 1
At the Configure Tint2 Wiki site you can find the Clock Settings here
(And all of the Tint2 settings)
As a side note... anyone can move/copy these files from the /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers directory to your /home/username for easier editing and managing.... most of us do this and put them under the /home/myusername/.config/tint2
So V-Ger you ask, why not have it that way by default? Good question.. and I would IF the tint2 developers would adhere to simple desktop standards such as $HOME in config manipulations ... The variable launcher_apps_dir must be a complete path to function... and since there is no way I can know a users home dir name to start these files, I had to place them in /usr/local/bin/tint2launchers and so that the launchers will work correctly
If anyone has any suggestions to solve this a different way, V-Ger is all about gathering new intel...
