Alarmed: “Cron-like” jobs with a GUI

18 January 2012Entry by

Check out our new page Funny LOL Pictures (click here) Рit brings you daily funny pictures that will make you LOL!

Sometimes you just really need for a certain command to be executed every X minutes. Or maybe you could use something that will notify you to check your bags every hour. Not a problem, Alarmed will help you with that.

Alarmed is a little GUI app that allows you to schedule any sort of event to be done at a certain time, pretty much like cron, an utility well known to every *nix administrator.

Install alarmed:

sudo gainroot

apt-get install alarmed

Once launched, you’ll see a screen with all your currently scheduled events and buttons for creating new events, removing and editing current events.

Creating a new event is simple with a user-friendly interface of Alarmed: press a button, chose what exactly will be done at that event and schedule a time.

Easy and effective, now you don’t need to constantly remind yourself to walk the dog or switch your profile to silent when you’re at a conference.
