I might have botched a debug conditional, I'll double-check, thanks .

EDIT: Yep, forgot the conditional. Will fix it when I get back to my dev box .

Should I be installing this revised version of MiniClock rather than original one now?

That's entirely up to you .

I, personally, wouldn't mind more guinea pigs, err, testers ;p. But I also perfectly understand the "don't fix it if it ain't broke" philosophy .

As a minor incentive, besides the "ooh, shiny" effect, the positioning tweaks are probably most useful for people using the bottom-right corner, for instance. Especially if you read in multiple orientations, because that would allow you to have it automagically behaving in all orientations, which was impossible with absolute coordinates.

I had a quick dabble with alternate version which seems to work well. Only issue I had was getting it to recognise a ttf font in the miniclock directory and allowing me to change size like the original... I didn't succeed in what should have an easy change!!

All I did was add truetype=times.ttf before truetype_size and changed value of the size parameter to 8. Copied the font file to .addons/miniclock folder. Result ~ continued to use original default font!

I've probably done something dense but had no problem with original version following these steps.

@jsessions: Oh, yeah, that's not something I would have tested, and it's indeed broken.

*nix gibberish follows:

This versions run a single FBInk instance that daemonizes. That process involves a chdir. The script assumes its $PWD is still the MiniClock addons folder, which is no longer true => ENOENT .

TL;DR: I'll post-process the path to make it absolute, which should fix that .

@jsessions: Okay, package updated in #311, it *should* fix the relative font paths issue .

(I haven't tested it, but the fix is trivial enough that hopefully nothing will horribly implode ^^).

Fix does indeed work ~ thanks ~ truetype font works as expected. I'll continue playing with parameters when I have a bit more time.

I got a new Clara and really wanted the time showing, so I downloaded Frostschutz's 20190729b version of this addon.
It works but if I change the miniclock.example.cfg file, I always get the same default on the screen.
I did a factory reset, installed again and tried making just one change and nothing happened. I've only used examples listed here like the date format to %l:%M%P, no difference. Then I tried changing the font, nothing changed. I even tried the uninstall, nada. I also changed the debugging to 1 and no file.
It's like it's not reading the cfg file.
Did I miss something important?

miniclock.example.cfg is just the example file, so it won't overwrite customized miniclock.cfg everytime you update

save it as miniclock.cfg to actually do anything

should say so at the very beginning of the file itself

Code:
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
#   MiniClock config example file. For settings to take any effect,
#     copy or rename this file to .addons/miniclock/miniclock.cfg.
# -------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you! I've read this thread so many times, but sometimes the little things slip by.
And thank you for your work, it makes a huge difference.
