Please resolve this bug soon. I am still living only because of DrWright.

Bump. For me typing break is indispensable. I have it in Gnome 2.x,
but it is gone for 3.x.

It's now possible to use Workrave in Oneiric. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/848147 for details.

Some one who can do Ubuntu Packaging, please do the packaging for Dr Wright..

my idea is to convert drwright rpm (at http://pkgs.org/download/drwright) to deb. For example, my way was:

sudo apt-get install alien
 sudo alien -c drwright-3.2.2-1.fc17.i686.rpm
 sudo dpkg -i drwright_3.2.2-2_i386.deb

Once you install it, typing breaks are configurable via the System Settings menu.

Its not working for me. Any other idea please.

Currently waiting for packages to be built (could take hours so.. check back tomorrow):

Patched for unity and set default to disabled.
After you install it, log out / log in.
You can find it in gnome control center.

That is a PPA, not Ubuntu - the package is not committed to the official repositories

I get multiple break notifications piling up but staying hidden under Unity, using the ppa version.
Nevertheless, would be great to get this in Ubuntu (again).

If you have a patch to fix it, I'd gladly integrate it.

From a personal email reply, I think that the current upstream maintainer
is not interested in supporting Unity or other non-gnome-3 desktops.

how can I disable the notifications, I just want the typing break to appear, without warnings. Another question. Is there a way to have it in the indicator, as the 2.x version was (with a green/red icon).

Thanks a lot in advance

Hi, you should file a bug upstream about that as it is a wishlist:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/browse.cgi?product=drwright

You should also try drwright with gnome 3 (gnome shell), because the
current developer is mainly concentrated on gnome 3.x
