    I can't work out how to use geektool at all, eurgh that's a tongue twister!

    i've found a nice clock that i like, this is the command


    Days
    cal | sed -e '1d' -e '2p;2p;2p;2p' -e '3d' -e '4d' -e '5d' -e '6d' -e '7d'

    Numbers
    cal | sed -e '1d' -e '2d' -e '2p;2p;2p;2p' | sed -e '$!N;s/\n/ /' -e '$!N;s/\n/ /' -e '$!N;s/\n/ /' -e '$!N;s/\n/ /' | sed "s/^/ /;s/$/ /;s/ $(date +%e) / $(date +%e | sed 's/././g') /

    Can anyone help me put this on my desktop.
    also i live in the UK will the weather display correctly?

    Thanks in advance

    what sort of effect are you trying to create with the clock?

    and what weather info would you like? the way I get weather is to download the RSS feed from bbc.co.uk and extract the info I want

    Here's mine:
