Anyone who knows how to change the colour of the clock on the N9 when it's in sleepmode/standbymode?

Would love to make it red because it lights up my whole damn room at night.

Thanks!

Hello.

Edit /usr/share/themes/base/meegotouch/libsysuid-screenlock-nokia/style/libsysuid-screenlock-nokia.css

and change the color within LockScreen MLabelStyle#LockScreenLowPowerModeClockLabel,

then reboot N9.

I changed the colour in order to identify my own phone and wife's phone, both black N9 64GBs...

Doesn't adding colour to the lockscreen drain the battery faster?

No, it doesn't. To get white the screen has to light up the R, G and B sections of each pixel. So to get colour it in theory needs to use less power. It is important to note however, that in low power mode the display can only switch each section completely on or off. With those limitations you can have 8 different colours to choose from (including black and white).

you can make the font LIGHT (default) or BOLD, and increase font size to 11mm maybe 12...

edit: bold doesnt look so good though

Does anyone know if I can change the time format using this file? Near the above settings there are settings like time-format with a value of "%R" under ScreenLockClockStyle#LockScreenLowPowerModeClock.

I use a 24 hour clock and I'd really like it to display 07:30 and 01:31 instead of 7:30 and 1:39, etc.

HsHon, this is how I managed to change the clock color (there's probably a better/quicker technique but whatever):

On you phone, copy the libsysuid-screenlock-nokia.css to a folder visible when in USB Mass Storage mode (for example: /home/user/MyDocs/Documents/). I used File Manager to perform this step.

Now, connect your N9 to the computer and navigate to the folder where you copied the css file.

Edit the file using a text editor, not Word :-) I use Notepad++

The line you want to change is line 85 in my file, two lines below: LockScreen MLabelStyle#LockScreenLowPowerModeClockLabel {

I suggest using basic red(#FF0000) blue(#0000FF) green(#00FF00). I noticed some other colors also work but not all of them.

Once your done editing save the file and eject your device.

On the phone's terminal:

type in:
Code:
devel-su [enter]
You then need to type in your password, default is rootme I believe.
EDIT: I'm not sure this is necessary but I'm not a pro with these user permission things hehe. It works this way and that's enough for me.

We then need to copy the edited file from the "Documents" folder back to the original folder.

type in:
Code:
cd .. [enter]
Code:
cp home/user/MyDocs/Documents/libsysuid-screenlock-nokia.css usr/share/themes/base/meegotouch/libsysuid-screenlock-nokia/style/ [enter]
Reboot your device. If you don't see the clock anymore it's probably because you chose a non-supported color.

You can edit the file directly on the device in the terminal but I find this technique easier. If anyone has a better way of doing this please let me know. Could we somehow add something in the settings pane for this?
