Additional time zone clocks in the system clock

There's an idea: to make it possible to create different time zones settings and save them as a separate clocks, like you do in Windows 7. It would be very useful. At least to have one more clock inside the main one. You just click on it, like you do when you open a calendar, and under the calendar there's an additional time zone section.

You may limit this so that user can add only one more clock to the main one, or you can make it possible to add a few more clocks.

Yes, I think this is required. This kind of feature is available in Unity and KDE (at least). I miss this as a user of Cinnamon. Perhaps I will find an alternative app in the Software Center to cater for it in the mean time.

@bergamot:
I also wonder about it like you.

'Pinguy OS 11.04' has downgraded compiz (0.8.6) at first for avoiding the troubles which attend with latest compiz...

I just wonder why the Team uses new Compiz with bugs instead of using the previous one, old and good version?

Put '@' before USERNAME, and put ':' or '(space)' behind USERNAME.

It seems if we put '!' , '?' , '(apostrophe)' or ',' behind USERNAME, it doesn't work as link.
If we want to use these symbol, put '(space)' then put these.

e.g.
- @kazztan0325! - @kazztan0325 !
- @kazztan0325? - @kazztan0325 ?
- @kazztan0325's - @kazztan0325 's
- @kazztan0325, - @kazztan0325 ,

@bergamot:

About a workaround for compiz on Mint 11, you can refer HOW TO DOWNGRADE TO COMPIZ 0.8.6 IN LINUXMINT 11 in Mint Forums.

By the way, how do you make this "@usernick" links in your comments? :) I have no idea.

Oh, thanks for your advice, once again! :) I'll try to apply this, however I'm using Mint 10 because I'm so afraid of Compiz bugs with Mint 11 (I had some problems with windows borders. I know you shouldn't activate Cube plugin, it crashes all the graphocs, but there's the problem: I hadn't activated it.)

@bergamot:

You are welcome.

By the way, I also encountered the same problem with yours when I installed Mint 11 at first time.
So I added a panel at the top of screen, and put clock applet on it.

Oh, well, it's just great! It solves my problem and make my idea just nonsense. How didn't I notice it before? Maybe it's because of this silly but annoying bug with my clocks and Compiz activated: this panel you launch by clicking on the clock, it appears somewhere above, not actually above the panel, but separately on the screen, near the upper border of the screen (I've got my clocks on the nether panel). So I didn't pay much attention to this location section because I couldn't see it properly.

Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to apply your step-by-step instructions.

Well, I don't think there's much to work on, really. I'm out of the programming, of course, but as I understand it, we have already one time zone and a clock for it. So, all we need is to embed one more time zone and correspondent section of GUI for that.

In fact, I don't know how powerful or big the team is. I'm just offering what I consider to be a good and useful ideas.)

Good idea, but again this may be upsteam of Mint. I don't know if the small Mint team will have the time to develop such changes.
