View Full Version : [ubuntu] swisswatch under launcher and gloobal menu

I want a analog desktop clock.

Under 10.04LTS I used cairo-clock, but under 12.04LTS, it sometime freez, so I missed some busses and stuff.

When I upgraded to 14.04LTS, this happand again, so I installed the X11 clock:

sudo apt-get install swisswatch

Under 'Startup applications' i added:

name: SwissWatch
command: swisswatch -tick 1

But now the swisswatch appears in the upper left corner, but UNDER the desktops global menu AND under the launcher so I can't reach swisswatch menu.
Does anyone know how I can move reach swisswatch menu, so I can set other preferenses, like 'show on all desktops, move it and stuff?
