hi stellarians,

my stove has a timer built into the back panel. the other day, it died, so, i hunted for something that'd work with stella, but i couldn't find anything. anyone knows of one that i missed? i realize there's 'at' for the cml (suppose if my bash skills were adequate, it'd work) & 'remind', which seems to be more a calendar.

i need an alarm/timer. this looks like it'd do the trick:

(had to remove the link to alarm-clock-applet.)

& a review:

(gone,too.)

think it's gnome-based, but it & several of it's dependencies don't appear when checking with yum. seems a little alarm/timer would be a cool addition; when you have time, could you take a look at the plausibility of an alarm-clock-applet package for stella, nux?

or did i miss one somewhere?

Hi loop,

I wrote a little script here http://dl.nux.ro/utils/teatime.sh, if you drop it in ~/bin (create it if it doesn't exist) you will be able to call it from command line without the full path.
The script has a delay of 3 minutes since it's for tea, but if you replace DELAY=3 with DELAY=$1 you should be able to specify a time in minutes in the command line, e.g.:
teatime.sh 15


It will play /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/complete.oga after those 15 minutes.
You can also couple it with zenity and make it ask for the number of minutes in a nice graphical way if you like.

If you have direct links to proper alarm programs I can have a look.

i'm not familiar with zenity. but then as for me, there's a lot that's unfamiliar. 0_o may check it out.

your script seems to match my needs if i run it from the cml (because in my case the times needed are almost always different from one time to the next.

anyway, since i've yet to make 10 posts the forum restricts me from posting links. i'm not complaining Wink i'll email them.

Right, well, sorry about that. I blame the spammers.

For the record the links you wanted to post (as per your email) are:

Loop,

Give it a try:

yum install http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/x86_64/gnome-applet-alarm-clock-0.3.2-2.el6.nux.x86_64.rpm


Normally you'd use
yum install gnome-applet-alarm-clock
, but I'm not sure the package is on the mirrors yet as well so it might give an error.
