Workaholic is a program which shows a window to remind you to take a break after a period of time.
Version: 0.2.0Workaholic is a software which shows a window to remind you to take a break after a period of time by showing a transparent window with a progress bar. You can skip rests, or postpone these for 5 or 10 minutes.
Operating System: Linux
· GTK+ version 2.10.x
If you use Debian, Ubuntu, or another distro which uses deb packages, you can download the deb package and simply double-click on it to launch the installer, or you can add my repository to your sources.list file, so that your distro can inform you of new releases.
If you choose the second method, open the file /etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite editor as root and add this line:
deb http://mundogeek.net/repo ubuntu all
Update the list of packages writing sudo aptitude update on the terminal, and install the application by writing sudo aptitude install workaholic.
If you use other distribution, download the tar.gz and uncompress it, and execute the command make install with root privileges.
If you ever need to uninstall the application just run the command aptitude purge workaholic as root if you installed it using the deb package, or execute the command make uninstall from the tar.gz file if you installed it using this method.
To start the program run Applications -> Accessories -> Workaholic.
The program sits on your systray waiting 1 hour, when it will show the window reminding you to take a break.
