I work with people from multiple timezones and I loved how I could have several displayed under my main time in gnome2 (I was using scientific linux). I happen to have a screenshot of it as you can see below.

KDE4 time panel

However on Fedora 22 (KDE 5.12) the timezone panel sucks. It doesn't even show when one time is for a different date.

KDE5 time panel

How could I go about getting something like the first picture on KDE? Or at least something better than what is there now.

There is no KDE Plasma 5.12. Judging by the screenshot, you're referring to KDE Plasma 5.3 or older.

In the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.4 release the clock tooltip has slightly improved in terms of "timezones having a different date" as the date will now be just shown by default:

I agree that having something with a visual representation of the timezones would be a nice thing to have. You could file an "Enhancement" bug at bugs.kde.org and/or discuss this idea with the devs in #plasma (Freenode).

  • Ah, I was going off of $ konsole --version\\ Qt: 5.4.2\\ KDE Frameworks: 5.12.0\\ Konsole: 15.04.0 But here I see the 5.3 number. $ dnf list plasma-desktop*\\ Installed Packages\\ plasma-desktop.x86_64 5.3.2-3.fc22 – Yelneerg Aug 19 '15 at 15:52
  • KDE is the community developing all the libraries and software, KDE Frameworks are libraries used by KDE Applications and KDE Plasma, KDE Plasma is the desktop shell, KDE Applications are applications completing the desktop environment. – Elias Probst Aug 19 '15 at 21:42
  • @EliasProbst I'm running Plasma 5.4 now (in Arch Linux), but mine looks slightly different. Some are probably just differences in locale, but mine is full of acronyms that I don't understand. Does yours still have acronyms or names of cities? – Sparhawk Sep 13 '15 at 10:10
  • This is configurable. – Elias Probst Sep 13 '15 at 14:01
