In my clone of pclock called puppy clock
I made a change in how countdown is shown.

In the countdown feature I now have an application chosen
that should make the feature more understandable.

I installed pclock in slacko and I noticed wrong version number under About
menu . Also check your desktop file for the Icon line. I couldn't find
that icon??

I have reuploaded it with correct version.
The *.desktop file is changed to support Woof-CE.

Is there any way to modify this so that you could run more than one instance at a time without them interfering with each other and both being separately resettable ? (eg one instance plays a voice prompt every minute and another instance plays a beep every second).

It uses pschedule. Launch pschedule after you have set an alarm.

I believe you can set multiple alarms.

Thanks. How does it use pschedule? - pschedule only seems to know about days hours and minutes rather than seconds as far as i can tell?

After setting an alarm you could then open pschedule

System > pschedule

and press the edit button to make more alarms.

But it would be simpler to launch pclock multiple times to make multiple
alarms.

If you want a simple countdown alarm then try clicking the 'Countdown'
button in the opening page

enter the countdown

aplay /path/to/sound

I'm not sure if loops are allowed???
But maybe a script that you write will play, and the script can have looping in it.

Here's a site that explains how to write a script that loops endlessly
http://bash.cyberciti.biz/guide/Infinite_while_loop


I think this script should loop endlessly barking like a dog.
Make sure it is executable and place in executable path ie bin or sbin folder
Code:
#!/bin/bash
while true
do
   aplay /usr/share/audio/2barks.wav
         sleep 15

done

This is the part I am having trouble with. If i launch pclock multiple times each instance behaves the same - they don't respect the different alarm times that I set.

Running a script like below just causes problems
when I use the countdown feature because it repeats the script.

It might be useful to have an option box to shut off repeating.

Here's some scripts that cause trouble...
but they work fine if launched from terminal.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
while true
do
   aplay /usr/share/audio/2barks.wav
         sleep 5

done

Code:

#!/bin/bash
        for i in `seq 1 10`;
        do
                   aplay /usr/share/audio/2barks.wav
         sleep 5
        done

My original suggestion was to set one alarm with pclock and then
open pschedule to make more of them.

I wonder if a countdown and an alarm can be made simultanuous?
