kalarm or the kind

Post#1 by francois » 15 Jul 2014, 12:16

Once and a while I take a nap in my office.

Kalarm or some similar package would be really handy. Is there a possibility to include it stock in porteus 3.0 ? (it is even not available thru usm or sbo)

Thanks.

I found that Lightweight Alarm Clock extension on google is one such application. I wonder how safe it could be to use such an application?

unfortunately we wont have kalarm in next release as it requires kdepim + friends (nepomuk).

my simple "kalarm"

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sleep 10m 30s  ; Xdialog --msgbox "GO TO COLLEGE" 0 0 & mplayer /home/guest/music.mp3 
1 - wait 10 minutes and 30 seconds
2 - Show dialog window "GO TO COLLEGE" and play music.mp3

If you need change time (example)
sleep 1h 30m for wait 1hour and 30minutes
sleep 7m 15s for wait 7minutes and 15seconds

While idling through the very long list of Plasmoids, came across an alarm plasmoid that , at the time, it seemed would have suited your needs.

RazorQT doesn't come with mplayer, it has qmmp and when dbl clicking on a .wav file it plays it. However substituting "mplayer" in the "kalarm" script above with "qmmp -p" doesn't play the same .wav file. Anyone know what parms are needed for qmmp to play a .wav file in terminal mode?

qmmp works for me

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sleep 5s  ; Xdialog --msgbox "GO TO COLLEGE" 0 0 & qmmp /home/guest/music.mp3
but.. try ffplay

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sleep 5s  ; Xdialog --msgbox "GO TO COLLEGE" 0 0 & ffplay /home/guest/music.mp3
if you need play ONLY wav files use aplay

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sleep 5s  ; Xdialog --msgbox "GO TO COLLEGE" 0 0 & aplay /home/guest/music.wav

Thank you Slaxmax. :good:

They all work, once I took the stupid space out of the .wav file's name. @#$&@ And while that sounds like an obvious error to catch the error msgs from qmmp did not indicate that to me.

Lots of msgs but "File not found" not one of them. The original downloaded file's name was "Busy Signal-SoundBible.com-1695161320.wav". Porteus(?) would replace the " " with a "\" which I took to mean it was ok.

Thanks again. :beer:

=update=

BTW If Porteus/Bash(?) had replaced the " " with "\ " rather than just "\" I think it might have worked.
