Ubuntu's pomodoro indicator

Doesn't work on ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Asked by liviux on 2012-05-26

Hi everyone,

I installed pomodoro-indicator following these instructions:

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/pomodoro-indicator/

It's seems to be installed correctly, but when I enter pomodoro-indicator in Terminal just nothing happens.

When I check system monitoring>process I can see it "sleeping" with the following message: "poll_schedule_timeout".

Does anybody know where's the problem?

I ran into the same problem after installing yesterday. Here's how to fix it (from the bug details https://bugs.launchpad.net/pomodoro-indicator/+bug/892239). In short, the icons are missing from the 0.2 tarball, and the line installing them is commented out.

1) Download both the 0.1 and 0.2 tarballs, and extract both. (tar xvf pomodoro-indicator-0.0.1.tar.gz)
2) Copy the contents of 0.2 on top of 0.1 (cp -R pomodoro-indicator-0.0.2/* pomodoro-indicator-0.0.1/)
3) Edit setup.py to uncomment the line beginning with "package_data" (cd pomodoro-indicator-0.0.1; pico setup.py)
4) Re-run setup (sudo python setup.py install)

You can now run pomodoro-indicator from the Unity bar.

Personally, I'm partial to Tomighty, but YMMV (http://www.tomighty.org/)

Can you help with this problem?
