Here is how to get an xclock display that would show multiple color coded timezones for each hour, but otherwise was small and out of the way. Timezone has to be set for each xclock element. The individual color coded hour elements are spaced so that they fall in the blank space(s) of the larger UTC clock.
The code below lives in my ~/.xsession file. It is important to put the individual color coded hours first, and the larger UTC time clock last, as the .xsession file is processed "front to back" for displaying the xclocks in a layer.
First, the one you will probably never use because you don't get the output in a easily usable format.
I'm going to assume you want to get a screenshot with an image that you can actually use later on, in a blog post or the like. This would mean converting the image, which means installing ImageMagick. Chances are, it was already installed as a dependency, but if not using
Old xwd files can be converted to any format by the Image Magick convert tool, as simple as requesting the file be renamed from one format extension to another-
Since changing some things around, I'm getting to some small tasks I've been missing out on. Like making sure I get notified when I need to update the patches, firmware or packages. That is now done. yay. Now time to play with neomutt, because I'm not such a fan of alpine today.
