[maemo-users] xdaliclock

Having got scratchbox reinstalled and trying hello-world, I found
an old X11 app that was really simple to build, and maybe even useful.
I wasted a bit of time making taller digits.

Sorry, I didn't make a proper Debian package or installer. It starts from 
the command line and has no special dependencies or requirements.

Now you can turn your $400 tablet into a $4 desk clock :-)
Leave it on the charger and set the backlight on full-time.

(It would be nice to redo this in 3D and colour, with integrated alarms, 
chiming the hour etc. but that's way beyond my skill...)


Source code, 2 ARM binaries

On my desktop, I can find system fonts in xlsfonts or xpaint, and say 
xdaliclock -fn '-urw-urw palladio l-bold-r-normal-*-*-880-*-*-p-*-iso8859-*'
but on the tablet I can't find a font chooser. The builtin font works OK.
