[Solved] Need hourly notifier on Solus MATE to remind me to take a break.

Sun Feb 04, 2018 4:31 pm

Hi.

I use Workrave on Debian. I see Solus does not have it.

How can I get a notifier pop up on the hour, every hour in Solus MATE?

Thanks.

You still can use Workrave its in the Solus Repositories. I just check it out in the Software Center.

I'm using Budgie though. If it's not in your repositories. Then look for an alternative.

Was also in my repositories.
