Hey guys, I am pretty much a minimalist, and I recently got rid of my clock in my room to save electricity (not much but it still would make a difference!)
I am a minimalist, but I still own a desktop since it I use it for everything including movies, games, music, etc.
I have been using the awesome cron to play a sound every thirty minutes.
It looks like this:
00,30 * * * * aplay /home/eric/notifications/clocksound.wav
It has been working perfectly, but I want to step my game up and also have a visual notification that doesn't interrupt whatever I am doing, and closes in about 3 seconds or so.
Preferably, I would like to not install anything additional.
Perhaps display a zoomed in terminal output with the command: date '+%H:%M'
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks guys, keep on Linuxing!
Keep on tuxin' =)
