Terminal time for Linux

By   |  January 23, 2008

Linux only: Do you spend most of your day working at the command line? Either in a terminal editor or full screen text? Then how about embedding a clock into the top right hand corner of your terminal so you know exactly how long you have been working. There are many ways to achieve this (or similar) effects:

Sergio Gonzalez Duran on offers this longish but effective way round:

Save the script into your home directory:

Chmod’s status to 755:

chmod 755

Then in a terminal run:


and you’ll have a small clock in the top right hand of your terminal window. It works in xterm and apparently in many other emulators as well. There are also variations on this script at the original article on

For a simpler and more elegant solution if you regularly use full screen text (ie no graphical interface at all) try this on Ubuntu (and many other distros):

sudo -b vcstime&

and you’ll have a simple clock in the right-top corner of your screen.
