wmCalClockKbd is simple calendar clock with integrated keyboard group indicator (for XFree86 >= 4.3.0).
If you want to use the keyboard indicator, you really need to have XFree86 >= 4.3.0! If you use more keyboard maps, it should be set properly. There is example of my X86Config-4 InputDevice section:
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# you might use pc105, if you have Win keys on your keyboard
Option "XkbLayout" "us,cz_qwerty"
# most important! I have configured twokeyboard layouts (groups) - US/ASCII
# and Czech(qwerty), you can use up to 4 layouts
Option "XkbCompat" ""
Option "XkbOptions" "default,grp_led:scroll,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp:switch"
# default - use some default options to avoid Mandrake bug
# grp_led:scroll - indicate alternative groups by switcing the scroll led
# grp:alt_shift_toogle - switch groups by pressing Alt+Shift (left)
# grp:switch - use right alt to set second group, while it is pressed down
you can also use setxkbmap, if you don't want to edit you XF86Config-4:
setxkbmap -layout "us,cz_qwerty" -option "default,grp:alt_shift_toogle"
for example. Once, when you have configured your keyboard properly, you can run wmCalClockKbd with -kb option:
wmCalClockKbd -kb "us.xpm,cz.xpm"
which tells to wmCalClockKbd to use us.xpm file for first group and cz.xpm for the second group. Images are taken from the default location specified in PREFIX file.
You can use up to 4 images, but the number of images must be the same as number of configured layouts (groups), otherwise app disable keyboard indicator functions. Please make also sure, that there is your national image in pixmaps directory.
If not, you can make new one (dimension are 54x35 pixels, color depth depends on you system) and send it to me (I will add it to source files, but please don't break any Copyrights when making it).
There is another one new option -kbt, which sets how much will be the keyboard image transparent when merging with date sign (default options is 0.25, you can you any number from 0.0-1.0, but useful values are 0.1-0.5).
All wmCalClock options works like in the original version, you can read about them in olddoc/ dir of source codes or use -help switch.
