Just FYI - lal is extremely light weight an recommended frequently for
use in WM's such as openbox.
Blogs that suggest it:
"lal is a clock for the dock. It is a very simple application designed
for use with WMs like Openbox that provide a dock area. The font, time format, text color, and width can all be specified on the command line or in your ~/.Xdefaults."
It's very flexible but also very tiny. It's something that hasn't been
packaged because compiling it is so simple and easy. Me learning how to
package with this application probably took longer than it did to build
the source. Personally, I can't see using anything else. I have this in
my own PPA but I'd rather see the rest of the world be able to use it
with no troubles.
If you'd like to see it, I uploaded an image:
I hope this helps anyone interested understand why it's going to be
useful to others.
Also, I recently uploaded this again with some improvements to debian/*
