Translation you can do here:

How to use:
Apply patch->restart lipstick-> Go to Settings -> Time and Date -> Configure it as you want -> See result on Event screen.

The uptimer implemented in a little bit ugly way.

Do you plan to update this patch to be supported by sfos 3 ? Tks

Oh, to this Patch has the package whois as dependency, hence installing fails, if that package is not available.
Tested in Storeman 0.0.27 under SFOS 2.2.0

This can be easily resolved by adding the Feathers_McGraw repository.
@Schturman, may I suggest mentioning that explicitly in the description on OpenRepos, just as you already do for MyIP.

Ohh, you are right.. I forgot to update description since v0.3-2... I will update it.

Schturman's picture

I can't update from 0.3-1 to higher versions because the dependency package „whois” is missing. What went wrong? (I'm on Jolla C)Edit: forget about it, i just read the changelog... ;)

Currently, after browser froze yesterday (and some patches suddenly stopped working) this patch is no longer working and couldn't be enabled neither disabled (even after uninstall, reboot, removed all patches, pkcon refresh, version --dup etc)

I'm afraid I'll have to reset my phone to factory status again :-(

Using patchmanager 2.0 in SFOS, Jolla 1 phone.

Schturman's picture

I don't know what the problem with your device, but on my Jolla1 and patchmanger2 all work like before... No problem with apply or unapply...
Before full factory restore, you can try to unapply all patches and reinstall this packages:

After this try lipstick restart...

P.S. you shure you not updated your jolla without unapplying all patches ?

Sorry, how can I uninstall the old (first) version manually, without warehouse? because it is not showing uninstall option anymore after you separated the 2 new version. I just would like to try the meecast ver without any ver. conflict :) . Thanks.

Schturman's picture

Just install new version, the old one will uninstall itself automatically ;)

gedeon's picture

Perfect, thanks! ;)

Schturman's picture

No problem :) It work for you like expected ?

gedeon's picture

Of course, it is working well, nice job ;) .

gedeon's picture

It is not woking on Intex Aqua Fish, S ver . I tried to disable other patches but still failed to intall the patch. It would be a nice patch anyway!

Schturman's picture

What you mean ? You can't apply it from patchmanager setting or after applying you can't see changes ?

P.S. Do you have weather app installed from Jolla store ?

P.S. I reuploaded version 0.1-2 try again. For me it work on all my 3 devices (Jolla1/C and Tablet)

gedeon's picture

Failed to install the patch, I mean I can not activate in patchmanager. Now I tried again uninstall/install but the same. I have weather app and meecast as well, I use meecast on eventsview.

olf's picture

Exactly the same here on two Jolla 1 phones under SFOS, with "Event screen date & text" version 0.1-2, Meecast and meecast-eventview installed, but no Foreca weather app (from the Jolla Store rsp. SFOS's first run wizard).

So I reverted from version 0.1-2 to 0.1-1 and everything is working fine, as it did before the update to 0.1-2.

Schturman's picture

First version should work with meecast if meecast not touch the date.

Schturman's picture

Ahhh meecast... I didn't used it and didn't test it with meecast, only with official weather app...
I can try to update patch if you will provide content of this file: /usr/lib/qt5/qml/Sailfish/Weather/WeatherBanner.qml. Copy It and paste on -> post link here...
