    custom city timezones


    Hello, I am trying to add clocks for different cites on my desktop or taskbar. But when I do this, I can only choose the city shown in the available timezones.

    This is the best I can do:

    I would like to change LA to Santa Clara, London to Cambridge and Kolkata to Bangalore.

    Is there anyway to accomplish this?

    Thanks,
    Geese

    Basically you just pick one that's in the same zone as you are. I normally go with Chicago even though I'm no where near Chicago. It's in the Central Time Zone and that's really all that matters.

    Sorry, I did not explain myself well.
    The timezones are correct, I want to change the city name.

    example: we have an office in Bangalore India. It has the same timezone as Kolkatta. But I cannot set the timezone to Bangalore, only Kolkatta. Which is fine for the most part, but I prefer if it said Bangalore.

    Conky is one I know that can handle what you want. I use yweather in JWM tasbar but I don't think that is what you are looking for.



    You have not given enough details like what distro you are using. What Desktop environment, or Window Manager, (which is what I use mostly. Like my screenshot shows. JWM).
    Anyhows.

    Sector11 (Sector11) on deviantART

    seems like a good blind spot starting point as well as

    The little horizontal info bar in my screenshot is conky. It should be easy to find a canned setup that you can tweak for what you want.
    Google is my friend when I needed yweather in JWM. It will be your friend for conky and different clock timezones.

    Hi
    If you have the gnome panel you can click on the time/calendar
    expand locations > edit > +Add > location name > type your city
    Santa Clara, Cambridge and Bangalore all show up and you get the weather info
    as well: condition, temp, wind, sunrise and sunset times.

    Not to change the subject but you can also add a weather widget to the panel that will give you more info then the weather in the time/calendar.

    Thanks, but I am using opensuse and kde.

    I tried looking for a weather plasmoid but could not find anything suitable.

    Is it possible for you to fill the following table ?
    Code:
                         +/- Local                 +/- UTC
    LA
    Santa Clara
    London
    Cambridge
    Kolkata
    Bangalore
    
    For example
    LA                 -10 from local          -8 from UTC

    LA
    Santa Clara UTC -8
    London
    Cambridge UTC 0
    Kolkata
    Bangalore UTC +5:30

    You can work out your local difference, taking in consideration Summer Daylight Savings Time is UTC +1
