how to get the htc style clock:
The First thing you'll need is the background which you can download here
Save the background image in a folder where you'll remember it is
Then to place the image onto your desktop just drag the image icon from Geektools preference pane on to your desktop,and then specify the location of the image inside the box above [set local path]. (or you could just click the button and find the image when the pop up box appears)
Now you should have the HTC background on your desktop
Place this anywhere on your desktop where you want the Geeklet to sit.
All the next commands are Shell commands.
Next thing to add would be the Hour and Minute. the codes are:
hour: date +%I
min: date +%M
note from here on, when you see YOURCITYNAME or YOURCITYCODE you have to edit it to your specifics
The City name is just a simple echo which just displays any text you want it to,
the code is: echo YOURCITYNAME
On the other side we have the day, month and date., the code is: date +'%A, %b %d'
to have the AM/PM text, the code is: date +%p
Lay these little geeklets over your background in whichever way you want. It doesnít have to be the way I have it here
