Thanks for your help Dale.
Now I know how to find the KDE version, in help for Konsole or others.
My KDE version is 4.4.5 as is my wife's.
My preference for the clock is task bar bottom right.
I think wife did something to delete the clock.
Since it was a year ago and she didn't tell me, I can't look up error
I'm going to give this a shot. It *may* have changed but I think it is
the same. As to how she deleted it, she right clicked the clock then
moved up and left clicked. Trust me, VERY easy to do. I have done the
same thing myself. The clock no less.
On the task bar, the little bar at the bottom, go over to the extreme
right with your mouse pointer. See the little gray thing turn orange?
Left click the orange thing. They call that something but I can't
recall what it is. Cashew or something? Anyway, a bar will pop up with
stuff in it. Click Add Widgets. Now a bunch of stuff will pop up.
Between the normal task bar and the new part that popped up is a scroll
bar that goes from left to right. Horizontal scroll bar and sometimes
hard to see. You can use it to find the Digital Clock or you can click
Categories and select Date and Time to narrow it down a bit. They are
in alphabetical order tho. Once you find it, just double click it to
add it. It may not go where you want it tho. It usually adds things to
the right side but one never knows.
If it adds it somewhere other than where you want it, Just put the mouse
pointer over it, the pointer should turn into a four arrow looking
thing, then left click and drag until it is where you want it, then
release it. You may want to move other things around too. When you are
done, you can click somewhere outside the task bar area or click the
little orange thing in the bottom right hand side that started all this.
If you want to prevent this from happening again, before you click the
orange thingy, click More Settings. Then lock the widgets. After that,
it takes two clicks to change anything since you have to unlock the
That should work on your version or at least be pretty close. Sorry I
don't use fancy terms for things but I try to type in a noobie fashion.
I like simple sometimes. ;-)
