gnome-timer-applet


I installed gnome-timer-applet but when I enter that on the command line, it's not recognized. How do I run it? I didn't have any problems (that I remember) when running gnome-timer-applet in Ubuntu last year.

Programs not running is a problem I've had several times when installing new programs in Linux.

(btw, does anyone know a really good timer, that I can use for alarms and timing my activities?)

Running on Mandriva Linux 2008 One GNOME version.

Thanks!

bump...

Could someone at least share whether running gnome-timer-applet on the command line works for them? (Assuming you have it installed, of course.)

Thanks again.

I've installed 'timer-applet' in Ubuntu, which is probably the equivalent package. It is a panel applet, so it's not really meant to be run from the command line. You can install it in a gnome panel the same way you would add any applet (right-click panel, 'Add to Panel...', 'Timer'). Pretty straightforward to use from there. Hope this helps.

It's working, thanks!

I just remembered this (after not having a timer and flooding the laundry...)

Ah, very useful, thanks. Working now.
