Alarm Clocks & A Clock Applet for Ubuntu Linux

Sometimes we need an alarm clock to do a job at specific time. Normally, we use manual alarm clock to awake up us at right time. But when we are on Ubuntu linux, then why don't we use a digital alarm clock to call me up or remind me my job at the very right moment? Here are some "Alarm Clocks" which you can use at your ubuntu machine. I think these clocks and applet will work on LinuxMint or any other Debian based Gnome desktop flavored Linux OS.

Alarm Clock is a fully-featured alarm clock for your GNOME panel. It is easy to use yet powerful with support for multiple and repeatable alarms, as well as snoozing and a flexible notification system. Two types of alarms are supported: Alarm Clocks and Timers. Notification is done by either playing a sound or launching an application.

This Alarm clock applet has some great feature:


Alarm Clock will notify you of an alarm by either playing a sound or starting your favorite music player! You can of course specify which sound you would like to use and whether it should be repeated or not. It’s also possible to specify a custom command to run instead of the pre-defined media players.
A notification bubble will appear when an alarm goes off, just in case you missed the sound.

Both alarms and timers can be snoozed - it's as easy as selecting the alarm and clicking "Snooze".

For convenience, the right-click menu of the panel icon provides quick access to snoozing and stopping any beeping alarms.


Alarm Clock is powerful and supports multiple alarms as well as auto-repeatable alarms.
