timer is, as its name implies, a simple but complete chronometer to KDE Plasma developed by Elvis Angelaccio and distributed under the GPL license.
Kronometer does one thing and does it very well: timing. Some features of the application include:
- Start, pause and resume controls
- Time recording
- Time classification
- Times reset
- Configurable time format
- Time saving
- Customize the font and interface color
timer It does not have an installation package nor is it available in any repository, so those who wish to install the application in Kubuntu 13.10 or similar distributions will have to compile it. Which is not that difficult either.
First of all, make sure you have the following packages installed:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev automoc
Then you just have to download the package with the source code:
wget -c https://github.com/elvisangelaccio/kronometer/archive/1.0.0.tar.gz -O kronometer.tar.gz
tar -xf kronometer.tar.gz
Go to the unzipped directory:
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` .. && sudo make install
Once the installation is complete, Kronometer will be waiting to be launched in the utilities section - or accessories in its absence - of the Plasma applications menu, Kickoff.
