Binary package “grandfatherclock” in ubuntu maverick
a clock that tolls time acoustically
grandfatherclock plays audio files to report the time.
The default configuration emulates a grandfather clock
with Westminster chimes. Cuckoo clock and Close Encounters
of the Third Kind files are included as well.
As a matter of fact, grandfatherclock can be configured to
execute any command. The upstream default is simply to write
a *.au file to a sound device file by using cat(1).
Since cat is not a good sound player, the default is changed
to use sox instead. grandfatherclock depends on sox to ensure
that it can run under the default configuration. You also need
a kernel support for a sound device to use grandfatherclock.
