Feature request: hours and minutes

Asked by Rosemary Hendley on 2012-10-17

I'd like to be able to to calculations such as 12:15pm - 80 minutes. If the user knows the start or finish time of their task and how long it will take, it would be nice to have a calculator to do the arithmetic to tell the user when to finish or start their task. gcalctool already works in base 10, base 16 and others. I'm really only asking for base 60. Would anyone be willing to write this feature? Possibly, it could be added to the View menu as 'Time.'

You could file a bug this will let the developers know its a feature people want. No idea if anyone will decide this is a priority though

To start the process open a terminal and enter

ubuntu-bug gcalctool

Mark this as a Wishlist and explain what you want and why.
