clock in tty (console)

You want to have a pretty little HH:MM:SS-style clock in the right upper corner of tty?
As root edit /etc/kbd/config and scroll down to

# Display a clock in the right upper corner of the console by running vcstime
#DO_VCSTIME=yes

remove the #. For those whose numlock is turned off after boot, you can uncomment LEDS=+num, too.

That's all wink Save the file, and sudo restart kbd:

/etc/init.d/kbd restart

Press Ctrl - Alt - F2 and enjoy roll

Be excellent to each other!

Great :-)
Too sad that'll only work on kbd using distros :-(


I'm so meta, even this acronym

rhowaldt,

what you posted is for the terminal. The kbd entry is in charge of the tty.
