Slackware :: Starting KTTSD Failed - How To Set Clock To 12 Hour Format

Aug 5, 2010

If I set the clock to speak the time, I get this when it tries: starting kttsd failed. I've looked at the various posts, but haven't yet found an actual solution. I've tried to run kttsmgr, but for some reason the "run" dialog doesn't seem to do anything - no error, nothing. Type kttsmgr, press enter since there is not obvious other way to execute the command, and nothing happens.

Is this a module that does not come with KDE? And I give - I can't find time format anywhere. How do you change the clock that appears in the lower right corner to 12 hour instead of what appears to be default 24 hour? I don't see it in "Digital Clock Settings", and I don't see it in System Settings - Date & Time. This is a clean install of slackware 13.1, and whatever version of KDE comes with it.

Fedora :: KDE Panel Clock To Display In 12 Hour Not 24 Hour Format?

Mar 24, 2010

I recently decided to try KDE4 and would like the change the clock on the panel to display 12 hour format and not the default 24hour format but i can not find where to change this option currently the clock looks like the attached picture. Gnome has this option and I would like to see it in KDE if it exists in the default clock. I am willing to replace the default KDE clock with a seperate widget if one exists for this.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Start Lsyncd Daemon On Server Reboot?

Jun 14, 2011

My problem now is that lsyncd does not automatically start if the server reboots. I need lsyncd to start automatically also using the --delay 5 option.

I've had trouble finding any info on this other that some Japanese sites (I cant read japanese) using chkconfig, although it didn't work as I think chkconfig is depreciated anyway.

General :: No 12 Hour Format Available In Gnome Clock (UK English)

Sep 2, 2010

Very simple question but very frustrating as none of the other threads/bug reports/whatever have had quite the same problem. I want gnome clock to display the time in 12 hour format. The suggested solution is something like right-click the clock -> Preferences and somewhere there will be an option to choose 12/24 hour time. Problem is I don't have that option.

The help has a note that 12 hour time "is not shown if your session language does not use the 12 hour clock" but this really shouldn't be a problem? My language/locale/city, everything I can think of, it's all some variation of en_GB, UK English, Brisbane, Australia: all places which should allow the option of 12 hour clock! So why don't I have that option?

Software :: Cron Clock Is An Hour Off To System Time

Mar 31, 2010

I have cron jobs running and the timing is critical, because I'm running Nessus scans on production servers. If I hit them at the wrong time, I'm toast. But when I check the cron log, I see that it is an hour off. Here is the output for the command "clock":
Wed 31 Mar 2010 03:01:26 PM CDT -0.257677 seconds

And this is the tail of the cron log:
Mar 31 16:00:01 nes-001 CROND[8790]: (root) CMD (/Nessus/Targets/NessusScriptDataCenterScan.test)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 CROND[8822]: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8822]: starting 0anacron
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Anacron started on 2010-03-31
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Normal exit (0 jobs run)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8834]: finished 0anacron

Cron thinks it is 4:00 p.m., but it's really 3:00 p.m. How do I tell Cron what time it is? (Stopping and restarting the crond service did not change it.)

Ubuntu :: System Clock Suddenly Losing 1min Per Hour?

Jun 1, 2010

Today I updated a bunch of packages, rebooted. I run lucid 10.04 x86_64, originally Xubuntu but now gnome since I cannot make xfce4-panel tasklist behave with compiz. Anyway, by the end of the day my clock was 10min off. If I use ntpdate at about 10min intervals I see things like:

$ sudo ntpdate 1 Jun 18:37:02 ntpdate[9734]: step time server offset 10.043055 sec

I have deleted /etc/adjtime and touch'd a blank file to no avail.

Is this problem serious? Is it likely software or hardware? Is running an ntp daemon the right solution or would it be masking a new software or hardware problem that appeared today?

Slackware :: Process To Automatically Start Bittorrent Download?

Apr 26, 2010

this is not specifically a slackware related question, but since done on 2 slackware boxes... the situation is, i have one box for browsing and other desktop activities and another box acting as router/local server. what i want to achieve is that the router box would look on a nfs mounted folder for new *.torrent files (which i put there from the desktop box) and if there is a new file, it would start downloading it automatically. also a good thing would be if it would notify me when how would you go about itwhat torrent client would you use and so on? maybe someone has already done something like this?

Ubuntu :: System Clock Automatically Advances 6 Hours

Jan 20, 2010


I've been frustrated with several problems I've been experiencing with Karmic Koala. The one I'll mention in this post is the fact that it randomly decides to adjust the system clock ahead 6 hours. I believe this began happening when I set the location for the system time that displays in the top panel. I'm guessing that the 6 hours is the fact that I'm in the US Central Time zone.

Programming :: Make System Call From An Automatically Started Daemon?

Apr 2, 2011

i've written small tool in C which makes measurements on my router (OpenWrt White Russian).

It is working as a deamon. If the tool is started manually, everything works fine. If it is started per script on startup, the following system call doesn't work :

Code: sprintf(command,"/bin/cat /root/%s%s | /usr/bin/ssh -p2222 user(at)host -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa "/bin/cat >> result/%s%s"", apmac, source, apmac, dest);

rc = system (command); the returned rc in this case is 256.

first i thought it is a problems with the user rights for the tool, so i have added +s to it. but that didn't help. as i said, when the daemon is started by hand, the system call works fine.

Slackware :: Clock Shows The Wrong Time In Slackware

May 10, 2011

I've been running arch linux, with my clock set to UTC with no problem. Recently I installed slackware on a different partition. During the setup I chose to set my clock to 'local time' instead of UTC by accident. Now in slackware my clock shows the wrong time. Also in arch it shows the same wrong time.

I booted back into slackware and ran pkgtool to enter the setup again, and changed my time to UTC. But this makes no difference. My clock is still wrong in both slackware and arch. Do I need to reboot after changing my clock settings in slackware before it takes effect? how the clock or the setup works.

OpenSUSE :: Switch Over From A 24 Hour To A 12 Hour Format?

Aug 5, 2010

I need to change the time displayed in the task bar from a 24 hour clock to a 12 hour format. I could not find the relevant settings in OpenSuse 11.2 and same is the case for 11.3 as well.

how to make the change? I have tried System Settings ---> Computer Administration ---> Date & Time; but I was not able to make the desired change.

Similarly, I have a digital clock widget that shows GMT + 5.5 hours and I need to change that to 12 hour format as well.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Change Time To 12-hour Instead Of 24-hour

Jun 17, 2011

I just switched over to Lubuntu, and so far, it's been great.It's rendering quite well with my laptop, even though the fan is constantly running.I've had some small annoyances that I haven't been able to figure out. How do I get the power button and/or other related actions to the 'start' menu? Is there a way to drag and drop applets like in Ubuntu? How do I setup default brightness like in Ubuntu? How do I change the time to normal US time (12 hour instead of 24 hour)How do I change the time to a 12-hour instead of 24-hour?Is there a software center?

Ubuntu :: Start Daemon On Login?

Aug 11, 2011

I'm creating a script that I want to run every time any user logs in (not only on the GUI, but also via SSH or via text terminal). The script will check if a daemon program is running (one per user or per session, haven't decided yet) and, if it isn't, will start it. I want this to be system-wide, not per-user. I thought about using /etc/profile (or creating a file in /etc/profile.d/) for CLI logins and /etc/X11/Xsession (same remark, Xsession.d) for GUI logins. My problem is that if the user uses a non-Bourne shell (e.g. TCSH) this won't work. Is there any initialization script that is run no matter what shell the user has?
