Adding a new timezone to osso-clock

The set of cities included in the Nokia N800 does not include any city in my home timezone (GMT+9:30, Australian Central Standard Time).

Luckily, I’ve worked out how to add one (the following is an example for my home city of Adelaide):

  • Edit /usr/share/osso-clock/wdb-parsed.txt and add the following line:
    • Adelaide|AU|Australia|Australia/Adelaide|1280|650|en_AU
      • (The 1280 and 650 numbers are pixel coordinates on the osso-clock map of the world)

You should be able to use the same method to add any other city that already exists in /usr/share/zoneinfo.
