Sometime in the last 2 years or so the kde5 digital clock seems to have lost the custom font option for colorizing it.

Use to just right-click it, choose Configure Digital Clock and you could change its color. Now, Only font style and size/bold/italic are there. :roll:
Actually, all the color controls which used to be great and the best in Linux, are now suffering a nightmare dumb-downing and a system-settings interface
that seems ridiculously complex and counter-intuitive.

I'd be happy if I could figure out the digital clock font colorizing, but I can't find any info on this, and have looked at all the kde config files in hopes I could edit in my preferred color, but no luck.

Am I just stupidly missing something very simple? :oops:

Seems the same on several other kde distros I keep up with (Kaos, Kubuntu).

You could try and install the Event Calendar widget. I think it has a customisable clock.
