Remember that awesome ‘flip style’ clock screenlet theme we mentioned earlier last week? Well it’s since been souped up, made themeable and capable of displaying even more information.

‘Flip Time’ is now supplied as a standalone screenlet able to display CPU, RAM, upload and download speeds as well as space information alongside the time and date.

By becoming a ‘screenlet’ rather than a ‘theme’ the itty widget has gained a host of customization options, such as colours and fonts used, an alarm function that can either be set to annoy/wake you or run commands.


FlipTime is available to install, along with an updated and newer version of Screenlets via the following PPA (supports Ubuntu 9.10 through 11.04 only): –

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:screenlets-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install screenlets python-rsvg

Launch the Screenlets manager from ‘Applications > Accesories’ and enable the ‘fliptime’ screenlet within.
