BeClock
Various KDE Extensions
Score 91%
Description:

A simple clock, implemented as KWin Effect

- This is NO plasmoid!
- You need active desktop FX to use this clock

** NOTICE **
For KDE 4.10 you'll have to obtain the version from https://sourceforge.net/p/bekwinfx/
(either through preferably git or a live tarball)

0.18 will not work on KDE 4.10

Installation:
---
tar -xJf beclock-kwin-fx.x.y.txz
cd beclock-kwin-fx
./configure
cd build
make && sudo make install
---
to activate or configure
- rightclick some titlebar
- say "configure..."
- click "all effects"
- filter for beclock
- check and maybe configure it.
- click apply


Advances:
- always on top
- input event dead (you can click through etc.)

Features:
- AM/PM or 24h digital display
- optional date display
- binary clock
Last changelog:

0.18
----
- hometime support, ie you get one additional timezone to select which will appear as a dot in the analog rings only

0.17a
----
- yet another maintenance release, fixes 64bit (thanks to Raymond Wooninck for notice and a patch) and KDE 4.7 building
- hometime support comes later ...

0.17
----
- build fix
- show corner activated clock on countdown
- preselect local time format (24h ./. AM/PM)

0.16
----
- maintainance release for KDE SC 4.8rc1 compilation. No functional change.
- update on 2012-02-03: cmake janus compilation issues, no code change

0.15
----
- support for 4.8 (yes, doesn't disappear anymore)
- alpha support for GLSL 2.0 (the blendfunction was irrelevant since not used anyway - i fixed kwin to support 2.0 shaders on my box ;-)
- as an extra bonus a binary and a Maya inspired clock =)

If I run the qdbus command in SL7 with a working and non-working desktop the diff is

diff beclock-working.txt beclock-broken.txt

> kwin4_effect_startupfeedback


I can get back to a working beclock by yum downgrading using

yum downgrade kwin-gles-libs kde-workspace-devel kde-workspace-libs kde-workspace plasma-scriptengine-python kcm_colors kgreeter-plugins plasma-scriptengine-ruby libkworkspace ksysguard-libs ksysguard ksysguard

Thanks for the feedback, I thought the project was dead.

I don't want the diff - I don't actually want the loaded/active plugins (I can assume that it's not loaded)
I'd need to see the entire KWin setup.

However, I especially need to know where the be::clock plugin stems from (fedora package, 3rd party or self compiled. A pre-compiled version may just be of outdated KWin effects API and simply needs recompilation)

And no: not dead - I would delete kde-look.org entries of finally abandoned stuff ;-)

Thanks.
So it's loaded but not considered active.
As be::clock doesn't reimplement Effect::isActive, this sugests fedora has reversed the default of that function downstream.

-> update from https://sourceforge.net/p/bekwinfx/
(git fetch; git rebase origin/master) and recompile - commit 6a40196c0d45aa5bd6f391bb46e8b3a3dd116fb8 reimplements Effect::isActive() and should return true whenever required.

I can recompile that with the older kde packages and it works with the older packages (yum downgraded). After I upgrade the packages beclock still is not visible and I get errors on compiling

There's some issue with the kwin effect header.

This call:
no matching function for call to ‘KWin::EffectsHandler::unreserveElectricBorder(KWin::ElectricBorder&)’
effects->unreserveElectricBorder( border );

Is preproc'd
#if KWIN_EFFECT_API_VERSION_MINOR < 220

Which was bumped in February 2013 with

commit 8faf62d8b42a782ea0b2efe33ef3915342ac3903
Author: Martin Gräßlin
Date: Thu Feb 7 11:43:40 2013 +0100
Increase KWIN_EFFECT_API_VERSION_MINOR

ABI change in new screen edge implementation

Unfortunately, the actual API change was in a different commit:
commit 3358685a52be3c7cef1497b6f84b7d1af2f920d7
Author: Martin Gräßlin
Date: Tue Jan 22 12:47:06 2013 +0100

Change the way how screen edges interact with Effects/Scripts

Martin just forgot to bump the API tag.

However, both where in git master before tagging 4.11

So it seems that Fedora has backported *some* commits and introduced a gap by that.

=> Either bump the version in
/usr/include/kde4/kwineffects.h
or in beclock.cpp, replace every occurrence of
#if KWIN_EFFECT_API_VERSION_MINOR < 220
with
#if 1

To compile for the correct API version.

I think something is still wrong, but it could be me

It won't compile with the #if 1, I have to put in #if 0, then it compiles OK (and installs) but the clock doesn't display.

I used
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/bekwinfx/code bekwinfx-code

Then edited beclock.cpp


If that was wrong then please let me know as I am not familiar with git.

Thanks for the help,

No, you're right - logic error on my side.
"#if 0" is the correct substitution.
Sorry for that.


Did you restart KWin (in doubt login/logout) after the installation?

What's the present "qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin supportInformation" output?

You *might* have to compile the 4.10 branch instead - this depends on what patches Fedora has backported :-\

Does the clock "appear" when you damage the area below (ie. eg. move a video player below the supposed position)?

$ git checkout 4.10

Hi,
no flickering or anything when I move a playing video below the beclock position/area.
I don't think 4.10 works either although I intend to try again, support information below.

It's not considered active, what's pretty strange (should have always been active before and now unless explicitly hidden, even if fedora had reverted the active state default)

- Is the dbus interface activatable?
qdbus org.kde.KWin /BeClock show

- Can you post the "[Effect-BeClock]" section in ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc ?

Whatever plugin is loaded is pre commit af5db8f5d9399f59bad3c10e807a4c7ce73549ca

If the version you compiled has this commit ("git log", it's labeled "wire show and hide to dbus") it was not installed to some KDE plugin path.

Check the installation paths in "make install" and compare that to the output of

strace /usr/bin/kwin --replace 2>&1 | grep beclock

(to see which plugin kwin loads)
The install the CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX variable (in the build dir, run "ccmake ..", ccmake is the curses gui variant of cmake)

Hi,

I might be wrong but it looks like beclock is being installed into

/usr/lib/kde4

but should be installed into

/usr/lib64/kde4

I've found the same issue with plasmoids compiled from source

CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX = /usr

output below

Hi,

I've copied the .so files from /usr/lib/kde4 to /usr/lib64/kde4 and beclock is displaying again.

is there anyway to define lib64 as the default location?

Thanks for your help,

GZU

Good to hear that beclock works =)

It installs into ${PLUGIN_INSTALL_DIR} as determined by the KDE cmake module.

You could try:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DKDE4_LIB_INSTALL_DIR=/usr/lib64 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..

But I don't know whether the variable would not just be overridden.
Fedora should probably adjust
/usr/share/apps/cmake/modules/KDELibsDependencies.cmake to point KDE4_LIB_INSTALL_DIR (and some others) to /usr/lib64

Hi thomas12777,

I can't remember if I tried your suggestion but I ended up using

cmake -DLIB_SUFFIX=64 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..

It appears that LIB_SUFFIX isn't set and is used in
/usr/share/kde4/apps/cmake/modules/KDELibsDependencies.cmake

to set the /usr/lib /usr/lib64 PATH.

This should help me with plasmoids also.


Thanks again,


GZU

Good to know.

However, /usr/lib64 is not a standard (for x64 systems)
As far as i could figure, Fedora sets LIB_SUFFIX in some "rpmbuild" cmake module, which is probably only invoked by rpmbuild - they might want to add that to some global cmake module (in the x64 cmake package)

Hi,

looks like it is all taken care of in rpmbuild by macro

%cmake_kde4

in

/etc/rpm/macros.kde4

Thanks,

beclock doesn't display anymore on RHEL7 variants.
It worked OK up until about a month ago.
I can get it to work again by yum downgrading a number of kde packages (about 10) including the workspace rpms.

Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks for looking.....

Self compiled BeClock or does RH simply no more include a package?
(Please notice that there's no port for KWin/KF5 yet)

If self-compiled and on KDE4, please paste the output of "qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin supportInformation" somewhere.

Looks like the git version is broken in Fedora 19 KDE 4.11. Seems to be related to xcb, anyone got any ideas or fixes.

Thanks.......

Which branch?
4.10 or master (for 4.11 use master)

If master build fails on 4.11, please elaborate on "how", ie. please post the error message.
