I'm afraid I don't see the benefit since it still displays the local time instead of a different time zone unless you hover over it.

Works well, but t loads its own static/useless calendar, without any of the events from the system calendar or from Evolution. Had to remove.

In mint 21.1 new time zones do not get saved.

On mint 21.1, the "Time format for world clocks" doesn't get saved anymore. Surprisingly, in the app configuration, "use a custom date format" the time format is saved and used. But the format for the world cock isn't!

Is it possible to set it up so it displays the time from a different timezone on a task bar? Currently for me it displays the time from a timezone defined in a system despite having different "World-clock" defined in applet settings.

Couldn't the default calendar app somehow pull this World Clock feature? The new events functionality looks great, but would be great to have an app that can show both. Events and world clocks.

Just a cosmetic thing, but I noticed after upgrading to Linux Mint 20.3 with Cinnamon 5.2.7 that the borders are missing. There's no blank space around the content, the box just ends with one pixel around the text.

After switching from Ubuntu desktop to Cinnamon and installed the applet, the time and date don't update in the taskbar. On a second taskbar I have the default time applet and this works fine.

I don't know why, but it started working at once. It now works since 1 day.

Will this include the announced update of the original calendar app, showing the calendar events?

I'm having a problem adding locations. I can add the location but not the UVT related time. I'm unsure of how to get to the UVT column. If I just add spaces and UVT-n the display time is not calculated. I've tried tab, adding location only and then trying to add time - nothing works.

Very recently, the seconds (%S) stopped ticking. They get stuck on 00 and only minutes keep changing. Please investigate. Seen both on 19.3 and 20.1. Please investigate and fix, I use this every day.

Same here. I'm on Mint 20.1 and the seconds stay on 00. This is the format I use: %a, %d. %b %H:%M:%S Thanks

I created a ticket for it here: You can try to draw more attention to it. But somehow nobody is doing anything. The same happens with a similar app. I even contacted the developer directly per e-mail. Nothing so far...

This applet is BROKEN as hell. The time shown is ALWAYS WRONG (by 3 hours in my case). My system time is set to +3:00 (Europe/Minsk) according to geographical location and is synced with time servers. All network software works as expected, but no matter how I try to configure both this applet and the standard Cinnamon Calendar they keep showing the blasted unnecessary UTC instead of the correct local time. The World Clock applet can add the right timezone and even display the correct time BUT ONLY AS A TOOLTIP. The main panel clock is forever stack with UTC!!!

Perhaps you could add "Date and Time Settings" underneath the World Clocks, and honor those settings such as "Display the Date" and "Use 24hr Clock" as well for the World Clocks?

Nice applet... should be moved to Cinnamon as default!

Works great...very configurable. For setting my preference when adding additional locations, I use a simple format (12h)... %l:%M%p %a %b %e. There are several time format websites....this one is easy to follow: Also make sure to set the format in both the configure interface (just below the 'Use a custom date format' which need to be set to 'on'), and World-Clock settings. They do not synchronize, and may cause issues the next time you make a change.

Fantastic applet. I have been using this for more than two years on both Fedora and Mint and have never run into a problem. Thank you!

I was able to use the applet with Linux Mint 19. For future reference - this is the article that I've used: It has a small setup explanation too.

I have not been able to edit/change world-clock items. If I add one, it puts in another entry for UTC, and I cannot change it to another time zone. Cannot find *ANY* documentation on configuring this applet.

I just recently upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04.3, running Cinnamon 3.6.7. The world clock applet time does not update at all, either on custom date or on default date, and I cannot add multiple timezones. When I first log in to Cinnamon, the time updates, but not after that. Any help or pointers in debugging would be appreciated!

It should pay attention to the 'Date format' string used by the primary clock. I use a 24-hour clock.

Is it possible to add World Clock twice with each clock in the panel showing a different time/timezone. I've tried adding two world clocks but each just shows the system time.
bakaoniisan-5 years ago
Very nice to have. Thanks. I can confirm that 24h time does not work on *panel*. The different time zones do work in 24h (%H). Also full date format in box is fixed at US format. eg "Wednesday October 25, 2017"

It's a great applet, but 2 things would do a great improving: 1. Don't use UTC as a default, since it's not clear that deleting this timezone, will allow to have access to suggestion box. I tried several times UTC+n without success until I discover I had to delete the UTC, and type the timezone. 2. Don't display the underscore, but keep it for storage for compatibility issues.

Use "%_H:%M (%a)" as the time format for 24h time.

Hi, I tried the new applet with Linux Mint 18.2 (beta) and it seems that it doesn't respect the system global Date & Time Settings (Use 24h clock). It still shows the time in 12h format in the panel! Thanks
