Analog Clock on XFCE desktop (cairo-clock vs. Opera widget)

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I'm not posting a bug or problem.  Just my experience these past few days -- an FYI for anyone else who has been fussing about with this.I am a Linux user of "intermediate" experience.  I use Arch (i686) with XFCE on a moderately old Acer Aspire 2920Z laptop -- and I was trying to get an analog clock on the screen without "cairo dock" (which I hate -- all I want from it is a clock, anyway).Puppy Linux uses "xonclock" which is nice AND in the AUR -- but it no longer compiles due to a "freetype" version dependency issue.  Xonclock is no (HowTos)
