I am just looking for a nice clock application to display the time in my IRIX desktop. I turns out that I do not really like the one
that comes with the operating system
There are actually two.... but if you'd prefer something completely different, you could try nixie clock: http://www.nekochan.net/weblog/archives ... k-for.html
fwiw, you can right click the face of the IRIX clock (/usr/sbin/clock) to open the IRIX calendar app or set an alarm, a feature that the out-of-the-box version of the IRIX xclock (/usr/bin/X11/xclock) doesn't have. You can also make 'clock' slightly easier to find on a crowded desktop by opening it with the clock dot
command. If the shipped-with-IRIX version of xclock is more to your liking, man xclock
will give you a fairly long list of display/size/function options.
