Description:

KAlarm is a personal alarm scheduler which displays messages, executes commands, plays sounds or sends emails, at scheduled times. You can set up recurring alarms, or restrict alarms to working hours. Among its options, it allows you to choose the message font and color, whether to display an advance reminder, whether to speak the message or play a sound when it is displayed, whether to cancel the alarm if it can't be triggered on time (e.g. if you are logged out when it triggers).

You can optionally use multiple alarm calendars, or share calendars. This allows, for example, sharing alarm calendars between laptops and desktop computers.

As well as using the graphical interface to configure alarms, you can use the command line, and there is a DCOP interface for other applications.

KAlarm is part of the official KDE kdepim package. The KAlarm version for KDE 4 downloadable from here is an update to the current KDE 4 release. The KDE 3 package is no longer supported; the last released KDE 3 version is functionally the same as the KDE 4 2.6.2 version, and offers considerable improvements compared to the version supplied with KDE 3.5.10.




Changelog:

Version 2.9.0: This release adds a new option to execute a pre-alarm action before deferred alarms trigger, and new options to auto-hide the system tray icon when no alarms are due. The Try button in the audio alarm edit dialogue now toggles playback start and stop. There are other minor improvements and bug fixes. It includes a new Catalan translation of the handbook.

 Command output

 
 by nigels on: Nov 28 2004
 
Score 50%

My wish-list item would be to have a "run in terminal" option, rather than needing to put "xterm -e" in front of my backup command lines.

It would also be kindof nice to edit an entire shell script, rather than needing to point to an external one.

KAlarm is serving me well as a GUI-oriented alternative to cron, but it would be nice to have the command output at hand, especially for debugging.

Run in terminal sounds like a sensible option to add. I'll consider providing the ability to edit a script. Thanks for the ideas.

I have now implemented both of your suggestions in KDE CVS. The next version of KAlarm will include these facilities - hopefully it will be out within the next month. (Things are a bit slow just now because I have been setting up a new Debian system instead of my old SuSE 7.2.)

The Preferences dialogue allows you to choose which type of terminal window to use, or to enter command lines different from the preconfigured ones. I have done it so that the terminal window stays open after the command has run, so that the user can see the results (if any). (Although I haven't managed to discover any option for gnome-terminal to do that.) For xterm, that is done using 'xterm -hold -e'. Is that what you would expect?

Hey, that's great. Looking forward to trying it out. I'm heading off for "summer vacation" in Australia, but I've got a post-it to remind me when I return.

When I think of it, having the output stored somewhere by KAlarm might also be handy, in a way that I can bring up the output for the previous run.

Cheers,

Nigel Stewart

I'm starting to think about this one. There are a number of possibilities, and your views would help me design it.

There could be just a single named log file which KAlarm uses, or the user could choose a log file for each command alarm. Or alternatively, the log file could be automatically allocated by KAlarm, and accessible only through KAlarm.

If there is a separate log file for each alarm, how would you envisage accessing it? (Remember that the alarm might have expired after running.) Please give details of the user interface you'd like to see.

Version 1.3.1 now includes an option to log command alarm output to a file (in append mode). You choose the log file individually for each command alarm. KAlarm doesn't provide any facility to read log files - you just use normal utilities to read it.

I hope this is useful.

Version 1.2.4 includes the improvements which you requested. Thanks - I'm sure other people will find them useful too.

Hey, that works nicely.

The only quirk I noticed was that the default terminal is "other", and undefined - resulting in a cryptic error message in the terminal I used to launch kalarm. Once I went into settings and straightened that out, all was good.

Perhaps there ought to be a check that the terminal is available, and nice dialog with error message.

Apart from that, it's working nicely, I migrated my dar-based backup scripts. I'll never need to cron again!

Version 1.3.0 beta includes a check for invalid terminal window commands. Version 1.2.7 in KDE 3.4.1 also will include this.

This is a problem several people have reported with SUSE 9.1 and 9.2. The SUSE arts package seems to be modified from the standard KDE source - these missing 'functions' are defined as macros in KDE, so would never produce these error messages. I hope SUSE will fix this sometime.

 Snooze Button

 
 by neokin on: Apr 24 2005
 
Score 50%

I was wondering if perchance you could add a snooze button to the message window? You see I use it for an alarm clock and would like to have a single click snooze button rather than manually setting differ value each time or if you could allow the user to choose weather or not they wanted a snooze button or differ or both?

Doesn't the Defer button do what you want?

Sorry, I misunderstood what you said. But with a Snooze button, wouldn't you need to be able to select how long to snooze for? If so, it's really no different from using the Defer button along with selecting a value in "Defer for time interval".

Cron doesn't provide the flexibility required for recurrences, so it simply isn't practical.

KAlarm isn't designed to take the place of cron. So if you want to schedule tasks when you aren't logged in, use cron instead.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
