Ubuntu Alarm Clock
I am in Florence at B and B Hotels right now. I have to leave the hotel at 12 o’clock tomorrow. I find it very hard to wake up in the morning. Who is going to guarantee me that I will wake up in time and be ready to leave the hotel?
I am a geek and I have to find a solution for this situation. Binary will give solution to my problem, I always think like this. Binary, Binary, Binary!
Ubuntu is one of my favorite Linux distributions and I feel like I am in a magic world when I use it. The Ubuntu Software Center helps Ubuntu users to find the software they need, so I think it is time to open Software Center. I need a morning alarm, so I type alarm in the search box of Software Center like shown in Figure 1.
The first application on the list offers repeatable alarms and it supports sound notification. Great! This is the application I want.
Click on install and let Software Center do everything for you. Drink some Coca Cola or a coffee or anything you like until the installation is done.
The alarm application is now in my application launcher. It is my first time using this application and I have no idea about it. Learning things by doing it is the very best way to learn, I believe. I am not doing rocket science here, but the idea is to try until you find the solution or achieve your goal!
Figure 3 shows how the application looks when you open it for the first time.
Go to the plus button at the top of the app and add a new alarm like shown in Figure 4.
Name the alarm and set the time you want the alarm to wake you up.
Select how many times you want to repeat your alarm. Select a sound you want the alarm application to play. You can use your own sounds if you wish.
Make sure the your clock is set to local time. After you added the alarm, tick it like shown in Figure 7 and the countdown will begin.
Now, it’s time to go to sleep.
