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 Save the file, and sudo restart kbd:
Press Ctrl - Alt - F2 and enjoy
Too sad that'll only work on kbd using distros :-(
I'm so meta, even this acronym
couldn't you do this? http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prompt-HOWTO/clockt.html
what you posted is for the terminal. The kbd entry is in charge of the tty.
ah, thanks, i was only half sure.
i'll go back to reading more stuff about how linux works
