Description M G Berberich 2009-05-21 11:34:57 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

The date-font seems to be hardcoded. It is neither the font from clock-settings nor any of the system-fonts.
Comment 1 Daniel Hahler 2009-05-24 18:47:15 UTC
Confirming this with 4.3b1 (at least regarding the "not from clock-settings" part).

(side info: Bug 185588 says something about the size being used)
Comment 2 Oleg Kostyuk 2011-06-14 00:08:41 UTC
Confirmed same in Kubuntu 11.04, KDE 4.6.2
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner 2011-08-15 11:38:26 UTC
this is really annoying as it makes the date line completely useless on lots of theme/wallpaper combinations.
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner 2012-01-09 07:05:29 UTC
Fixed in KDE SC 4.8.0!
Comment 5 Anne-Marie Mahfouf 2012-01-09 10:01:46 UTC
You can change the font and color of the digital clock time + date.
Comment 6 lambda165 2013-02-07 23:09:20 UTC
Nope, you cannot change the font of the date, or the font-size of the digital clock.  Not in Debian Wheezy amd64.

Really.  The Digital Clock font size is scaled according to how much width is required by the Date text, if you show it.  For example, the long date text (which always remains the same font and size no matter what font-family you set the digital time to use) will be wider on the bottom of the widget than the short date, making the entire widget spread out wider to accommodate the date width.  When this happens, the font SIZE of the digital time portion BALLOONS TO A REALLY PUKE UGLY SIZE.

If there is a way to change the digital time font, I'd like to hear it.  Otherwise, it's just more crap to put up with until XFCE fixes their menu system and file manager.
Comment 7 Andreas Sturmlechner 2013-02-07 23:17:57 UTC
Well, just install the 'adjustable clock' widget....
Comment 8 Antonio Rojas 2013-02-08 07:51:34 UTC
The date font follows the "small" setting from Systemsettings->Applications appearance->fonts
