Bug Description

(Just switched from 10.4 to 11.04. Love your product.) Let's say I have multiple alarms. If I specify a terminal command in one, as I go through the others, I see that the last command entered (for the previous alarm) appears in the dialog box for the next. If I go back to previous alarm, the previously specified alarm is lost. If I restart my session, most or all of the commands are lost. (Could it be permissions problem somewhere?) Thanks!

Which version of alarm-clock-applet are you running? I'm not sure I understand how to reproduce this? Could you provide step-by-step instructions?

I started from scratch.

First and second screen shots show that no terminal action was specified for two of my alarms: one that stops Dropbox and another that restarts it.

Third screen shot taken after I specified a terminal command for the "Start Dropbox" alarm ("dropbox start").

Fourth screen shot taken after I opened the terminal setting for the "Stop Dropbox" It shows that "dropbox start" was in the settings window although I didn't enter it. In other words, it appeared because of the previous alarm setting.

Not shown: I changed the "Stop Dropbox" terminal command to be "dropbox stop".

I then restarted the computer and re-opened the setting windows. Both terminal execution statements were missing.

Ooops. Forgot to answer your question. I am using version 1.25, freshly downloaded from Ubuntu's Software Center. (BTW: The link inside of the About box is broken.)

Yeah, that's not a screenshot of alarm-clock-applet. You're reporting against the wrong package.

Maybe this is what you're using: https://launchpad.net/alarmclock/

affects: alarm-clock → alarmclock

This is an old version, this bug is fixed in newer releases. Soon the application will be renamed to GNOME Automate, so the name will change and package alarm-clock will be deprecated.
