I admit the question is kind of stupid, but I honestly can't do anything about this weird issue.

I've added a Clock screenlet (with a custom theme) on my desktop and the thing is that I can't remove it. What I can do is to add another clock, click on it and "Quit all clocks" which removes them from the screen, but I can't remove the first one individually. The problem is that usually you can click on it and it shows the menu. But in this case wherever I click it shows ordinary desktop options, so I can't select it in any way.

How can I do it, maybe there is some way of interacting with them through command line?

Which desktop environment, Mate, Cinnamon, Gnome, ...? Is the clock part of the screenlets package? –  vertoe May 10 '13 at 5:55
    
It's Cinnamon. Standard clock package with external skin. –  sashkello May 10 '13 at 6:04
    
Well I've had a similar issue with a transparent calendar screenlet, the workaround was trying to catch and rightclick a pixel which is not transparent. But I guess your clock is not transparent, isnt it? –  vertoe May 10 '13 at 6:26
    
@donschoe Yes, it is transparent and I can't catch any pixels which are not transparent. –  sashkello May 10 '13 at 7:14

Well with command line you can only kill all at once, removing only one wont work. If it's transparent by accident you could open the screenlets manager and click the button "reset screenlets config" and after that you should be able to add a new clock without transparency theme. –  vertoe May 10 '13 at 13:25

It's a known issue with transparent screenlets.

One workaround is trying to catch and rightclick a pixel which is not transparent.

If this does not work you can open the screenlets-manager and click the button reset screenlets config. After that you should be able to add a new clock without transparency theme.
