Thanks! I love it. I even use it with Raleway font as on the screenshot.
Scaling, however, doesn't work well on HiDPI displays.

Thanks for the feedback. I know about the HiDPI issue. I've already noticed it on my FHD+ display. I can imagine that it looks much worse in 4K. I'll try to fix it soon.

Hi,
For Fedora I changed the cmake command to
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib64/qt5 ..
Also "src/CMakeFiles/kwin_osdclock_config.dir/build.make" didn't seem to have the full path to org.kde.kwin.Effects.xml.
I edited it to "/usr/share/dbus-1/interfaces/org.kde.kwin.Effects.xml" (in 2 places) before running make.
Thanks,
GZU

Hi GZU,
thanks for explanation.
I should update the build instructions to point out the differences between distributions.
Regarding the interface declaration XML: It's strange. Could you please post the output of 'pkg-config --variable=interfaces_dir dbus-1'?
Thanks

Hi laloch,

running 'pkg-config --variable=interfaces_dir dbus-1' gives no output on Fedora 28.

Cheers

Indeed! On Fedora you need to install dbus-devel package. On Debian/Ubuntu it's libdbus-1-dev. I'll update the README accordingly. Thanks for reporting!

Nice kwin clock, good replacement for beclock (which I used in KDE4).
I had a couple of issues getting it to work in Fedora but nothing I couldn't work around.
Thanks,
GZU

Thanks, you're very kind. I made it for myself years ago when our good old BeClock died along with Plasma 4. They even share some parts of code (specifically the blur effect).
Would you mind sharing the issues you had in Fedora? Or perhaps even better please file a bug report(s) over at GitHub if you think there's something I should fix.
