[Locked] Digital clock text [Bug #26]
Guest English 9 Robert63 [Read]

Looked through the forums and didn't see this particular issue, or as I only read/speak English, I may not have recognized it.

Cairo-Dock version: 2.1.3-9
OS: LinuxMint 8 Helena Main (32-bit distro based on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic)
Desktop Gnome: 2.28.1
Linux Kernel: 2.6.31-14
OpenGL: Yes
Window Manager: Compiz w/Emerald

When using the clock applet in digital mode, setting the option "Display time in a 24-hour format?" to OFF (unchecked), the AM and PM section of the time is repeated twice - as in 12:46:35PMPM

See it here:

It is not a so-called "deal-breaker", merely annoying.

Thanks in advance for help or suggestions.

Hello,

Thanks for this bug report, it seems that a 'pm' or an 'am' is displayed by strftime only with some locales.
Should be fixed with the next commit in BZR (and next week on our 'weekly ppa' )

matttbe,

Thank you. I probably should have included that I am in US-Eastern timezone, etc.

I'll catch the next ppa.

BTW, I really like the dock!

and that guest was me, posted before registering.

mattbe,

I am curious about the status of this issue. Although the thread is marked resolved, the issue still exists even in the current beta [2.1.4-0beta1] under lucid. In fact, it has changed slightly. Now it displays digital time as, for example: 12:27:42 PMAM.

See screenshot:http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk151/Bob1963/Screenshot-1.png

Thank you for testing!
@ fabounet : these files applet-digital.c/h aren't compiled but there is an '#include "applet-digital.h"' into 'applet-draw.c'

Additional information:

The "AMPM", "AMAM" or "PMPM" error only occurs if the option to display seconds is checked with 24-hour clock unchecked. With no seconds being displayed, the AM/PM is correct in 12-hour mode.

Update:

About 8 AM this morning local time my system performed an update which included the Cairo-Dock update from the PPA 2.1.4-0beta1-20100508-0ubuntu1~ppa0~lucid. This appears to resolve the problem.

Thanks for this great tool and your support.

Now that sufficient time has passed for AM to shift to PM, this is working correctly. As far as I am concerned, this seems to be fixed.

Again, Thank you!
