Timer not showing in KDE, hours not saving in GNOME, notification suggestion

Asked by Brian Fox on 2020-08-19

I installed this on GNOME and KDE, in GNOME it does not save my setting for any day other than Tuesday. It seems to be a bug, I am seeing the time run out but the lock is unlocked and the timer does not run. I have reset it a few times, trying to change it by all at once highlighting them all, then it did not stick so I did it one by one, it still did not stick. I did it on tuesday and it worked that time. I am running ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS and GNOME 3.36.3. I tried again and it seems to stick for now so I am not sure if there is some error that mad it not run.

The notification on KDE for me does not show the time remaining, it just shows the lock on the notification. It works when I preview it in the notifications, so it seems to be working but not displaying. I am running kubuntu on plasma 5.18.5. I see that this is a problem here as well. https://answers.launchpad.net/timekpr-revived/+question/673121 I cannot fulfill python-appindicator's dependencies. I believe this is due to it needing 18.04's verison and not using 20.04's version. The error I get is:

python-appindicator : Depends: libappindicator1 (= 12.10.1+18.04.20180322.1-0ubuntu1) but 12.10.1+20.04.20200408.1-0ubuntu1 is to be installed

It could be a porting issue, because this package does not exist for 20.04 yet. so when I tried manually that was the error I got. https://pkgs.org/search/?q=python-appindicator

I suggest the ability to change the icon's color and % to indicate danger of it locking and the ability to set at least 3 colors as a possible solution (posted this before I found the kubuntu post, it could still be a good backup or nice addition).

I am curious if there is the ability to add a popup every x interval. I tried to set it to warn me every 15 minutes but it is just probably a countdown before it shuts down. I would like the ability to remind me a period of time has passed, I tried to set it to a number that was large like 60000 seconds, but it only saves to 30.

Thank you so much for reviving this project!
