DynClock dynamic clock icon

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (15 votes)

Your clock icon will show you the current time. Works on Sailfish OS 2.0.2+.

Read before installing

  • ImageMagick is required to work. You can install it via UI Themer (both phone and tablet).
  • Systemd timers are not triggered when Jolla is in deep sleep, so if you take your device after a long inactivity period it may take a while before the calendar is updated (usually a couple of seconds). It's not really my fault, I tried to do the best I could considering my knowledge and current Sailfish OS behaviour, If anybody knows a better implementation, don't hesitate to contact me.

Imagemagick whats the full package name? Cant you include it in Dynamic Clock package?

MooCrumpus's picture

ImageMagick is not available for tablets...

fravaccaro's picture

ImageMagick is now available to install via UI Themer (for tablets too).

Hi! Installed it on, after installation I cannot see the clock icon is gone, but the clock in place. Please fix, or tell me how to remove. Thank you.

fravaccaro's picture

Have you installed imagemagick?

I got an error installing imagemagick via warehouse that lcms-1.19-1.1.8.armv7hl.rpm is not found in the jolla releases dir. Can you please fix this.

fravaccaro's picture

As you said, it's an imagemagick issue, nothing I can help with. Try to refresh repos.

The new version of Niel's ImageMagick installs the executable files to  in /usr/local/bin

harbour-dynclock search for one of this files in /usr/bin

So the solution to get rid of black icon is simply:

ln -s /usr/local/bin/* /usr/bin

This will create the symlinks of ImageMagick executables in the /usr/bin directory.

Wait max. 1 Minute - you will se the dynamic clock-icon (Of course if ImageMagick and harbour-dynclock packages are installed correctly)

Thanks for reporting :) I've just removed the hard-coded path in the script ;)

molto bello,Fra....complimenti

Love the whole effort! You did really nice! However the first update to the original clock icon style was beautiful, now it looks like a circle and the two watch hands seem disconnected if observed closely. Could be down to the fact I scale up icons with one of coderus patches but still this should not occur. Is it SVG graphics?

fravaccaro's picture

Thanks mate :) I'm using 3 png images based on the original clock icon. The first icon I used was actually kinda a development image, as I wanted to give it a more Jolla stock look and feel.

The issue you mentioned may have been fixed with the new 0.3.0-2, if not I'll try again (it looks almost fine on my phone now).

MoritzJT's picture

It is still not fixed sadly. Have you asked Jolla yet to provide the source SVG for the clock icon? Maybe we can extract something useful from that?

fravaccaro's picture

I worked on the svg icon actually :) But unluckily harms are not split up there and I've been having some troubles in doing that.

How to set Sailfish icons mask for all icons?

fravaccaro's picture

What do you mean?

luxbrux's picture

...scusa fra... ma l'icona fa' perdere molto alla tua meravigliosa applicazione...

fravaccaro's picture

Icona aggiornata ;)

feldbaum's picture

Installed. Now I can see only a black clock icon. Label is visible. Tried restart homescreen and reboot. Nothing helps. Uninstalling brouhgt back the Icon. Bugfix needed. Thanks.

update: forgot to install imagemagick. Tried to Install but failed.requires libpng15.so.15

Valker's picture

I have (almost) same problem. I didn't install imagemagick first (shouldn't there be a dependecy set so the install would fail if imagemagick isn't available?) and got a black clock icon. I unsinstalled the dynamic clock icon and installed imagemagick from NielDK's repo without any problems.

After that I tried to install dyn. icon again, but got black square like previosly.

Works fine on my other Jolla (which had imagemagic installed previously).

Valker's picture

Solved. ImageMagick didn't work because libgomp.so.1 was missing. So I did pkcon install libgomp and reinstalled harbour-dynclock. Now it works.

fravaccaro's picture

Have you installed it via Warehouse? It worked for me flawlessly.

It's not a package of mine, so I'm sorry I won't be able to provide further help, it may be better to contact Nieldk on this issue.


feldbaum's picture

Yepp, tried to install it via warehouse. So i have to ask Nieldk. Thanks.

Markkyboy's picture

as per my reply on NielDK's app comments, simply go to terminal and type in; `pkcon install zypper`, let that finish, then go back and get Imagemagick and it should download/install without giving dependancy warnings - this is part of zyppers job, finding/linking LIBraries. :)
