@Mjasnik I sent a bug report, can you please fix that? It would be nice for packaging.

Mjasnik commented on 2015-07-12 08:30

@SanskritFritz Yes, as far as I know it's the final :)

@Mjasnik Thanks. Is this the final name for your project? If yes, I'll create a new package for it after testing as time permits.

I finally created a project for timekpr. If You need a source, You should be able to download it with bzr.

Once again, if You would like, plz check if You can adapt that to Arch. I'm not using Arch anymore on any of my computers, so I'll not create an alternative package here due to not being able to test anything.

Project is there: .

Have a good day,

It depends on the display manager, not the shell. With KDM it works.

Thanks. Tried with Gnome shell and Openbox... no go.

@workdowg It still works with KDM/KDE. Sadly upstream is dead, so you are on your own. There are some patches proposed in the comments below, you may try it.

@SanskritFritz - Does this package work for anyone? It seems broken. It will control: lock account and time of day, but not an amount of daily time. I've tried under Gnome 3.12 and XFCE. I tried building for his newest release and get the same thing...

Latest version is available now for some days already. Tested under Unity, Gnome Shell, Gnome Shell Classic, XFCE and LXDE, no KDE at this time and no testing on ArchLinux or other distro, just Ubuntu.

As for LXDE, I tried to implement and test under LXDE as well, but to my surprise LXDE does NOT pick up autostart of Timekpr client, if I run it manually it works, autostart from /etc/xdg/autoruns does't. Daemon itself is working.
This is not a Timekpr bug, it's LXDE's.

I haven't used this package now for some months, but I will again within some time. It worked for me for years. I'd rather create a new package for your fork, just give me some time.
