There is a nice looking analogue desktop clock, but again, it is not pre-installed in Ubuntu Linux. This time instead of using Synaptic we opt for command line in terminal. Synaptic is no different from this command. It is just a graphic shell.
In terminal type:
sudo apt-get install cairo-clock
When it is installed, you may add it to startup programs in sessions or run it whenever you want from terminal. In terminal type:
"&" tells Linux that even if you close terminal, cairo-clock will continue running.
