By on Jan 24, 2010 in Featured, How-to, Ubuntu | 18 comments

Did you feel a need for alarm clock on your Ubuntu machine? Well most of us don’t need it however, if you are just too geeky to use your laptop or computer to have an alarm clock that wakes you up, then you can have one. This alarm clock is called as alarm clock.

Alarm Clock project is a simple alarm clock software for the GNOME desktop. You can schedule your tasks in an easy way.

In Ubuntu all you have to do is type the following command at the terminal. To bring up the terminal hit ALT+F2 and type gnome-terminal.

sudo apt-get install alarm-clock

Following are some screen shots for setting preferences.

This utility is pretty much what you need for a basic alarm system and should satiate your needs for waking up early :).

    After installation, clicking on the Alarm Clock icon on Ubuntu 10.04 nothing happens. No run application window or anything also.

    Good blog.  Alarm Clock is very customizable. Instead of  popping up a message or playing a music, you can make Alarm Clock to start a particular program.
