Hi gfreeau, I really love this applet. Only one suggestion, can we add keybinding for various options ? Also one more thing you are awesome.

I would like the program to keep statistics on finished tomatoes. I saw such a function in the firefox plugin. :)

I really love this applet. I would like to know if there is some way to cause it to start running automatically at boot time, instead of having to (remember to) start it from the panel. Like start it using a script that could be called from crontab or <startup applications>. Thanks, -Sadhu

After an upgrade from Linux Mint 19.3 to Linux Mint 20, the applet stopped working. I realized that the alias "python" wasn't pointing to any version of python. So I installed the package "python-is-python3" and Pomodoro Timer was back! So just run the command in terminal: $ sudo apt-get install python-is-python3 Remove and add your applet again. It should work now.

Hi all! Linux Mint 20.04 just installed, I want to try this applet (seems awfull). Sadly cannot manage to make it run. LookingGlass log says : command python doesn't exist. In my case, the solution was "apt-get install python-is-python2" and it worked like a charm. Hope it will help others... Thnx for your applet :-)

I'm also disappointed that Pomodoro doesn't work on Mint 20. I've found it very useful in the past - any chance of an update? Thanks!

Unfortunately, the applet is not loading on Linux Mint 20.

Very nice tool. Would it be a big trouble to publish it also as a plasmoid?

Nice tool so far! A way to save some clicks would be to immediately close the menu when clicking Pomodoro Timer (to start). It could be an option.

For anyone having trouble with the sounds not playing: - the extension uses the "play" command, available through the "sox" package (sudo apt install sox) - it works (at least) with .ogg and .wav files

Beautiful, low profile and simple, although I can't figure out how to make the sounds louder. I added sounds from /usr/share/sounds/ubnutu/ringtones because I wanted more obvious sounds but I can barely hear them and tend to miss my breaks. Will continue to troubleshoot.

Hi there, I love the applet. I boosted my productivity a lot. I do have a small feature request: While I would love to see the remaining time in the panel, the ticking seconds made me kind of nervous. Idea: Provide an option "Show remaining seconds in panel: Yes/No" The corresponding code in applet.js could then look something like this: if (this._opt_showTimerInPanel) { timerText += " \u00B7 "; // Separator if (this._opt_showSecondsInPanel) { timerText += "d:d".format(Math.abs(minutes), Math.abs(seconds)); } else { if (Math.abs(minutes) == 0) { timerText += "ds".format(Math.abs(seconds)); } else { timerText += "dm".format(Math.abs(minutes)); } } }

2017-06-07 version: - Pomodoro icon is too close to the counter - need a little gap between them. - Looks like only full sequences counted, not single 25m work periods. - I would like to have an option to disable display the counter of pomodoros. - Messages could be more clear. - Need separate icon for non-active timer (e.g. white one).

Using Mint-Y as my theme, I cannot see the numbers above the different duration sliders in the settings. This makes me unsure of what the configuration is, or how to modify it.
