Subject description: It would be a very versatile memo/calendar/agenda
 

Hello,

Do you know if there is a configurable reminder/memo on puppy (or a .deb) ?

Something which would work like this, you write a message and you set up a date for when it will show up such as :

- 02/18/2015 (february)
- every monday of the year (very useful Razz)
- every two days at 4:00 AM for example
- well you see my point maybe ?

Also, if it could even do more like playing a sound.
Or settings like :
- always visible until closed
- show only 30 seconds


and things like that


EDIT : I found OSMO on google and it's in puppy apparently (couldn't find it first because of it's approximative translation in french), dunno if it can do the job, i'll check it later if you confirm !

Osmo doesn't notify me in any way when the date is reached... no sound alert even if the box is ticked, :'(

someone uses it ?

My Osmo sounds both a alarm and flashes (if you set the blink option and have the tray icon option checked)

And can be set to reoccur tasks

I already set it up like that, but the blink event.

I'll try it but well...

You could script your own dialog box with gxmessage and have Pschedule time the alert.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
play /usr/share/sounds/ok.wav | gxmessage Yes Totolanio, it exists!

I do.

Usually Osmo is configured to use play command, which is not present in majority of Pups, to play sounds.
Go to: Osmo -> Preferences -> General -> Sound Player
and change, whatever there is, to:
Code:
aplay %s

(see 2nd screenshot by Rufwoof)

Also, if you haven't done it yet, you need Osmo to be launched at every boot, e.g. by creating this symlink:
Code:
ln -s `which osmo` /root/Startup/

Additionaly, check Start minimised checkbox in Preferences -> General.

Moreover, if you want a window to pop-up on the screen at alarm time, just go to Advanced tab (while creating a task) and type, for instance:
Code:
xmessage "Reminder"

into Alarm command text field.

Greetings!

Semme, your idea is nice ! But I'll stick with Osmo for now since I managed to make it work thanks to JackSFR (or SFR dunno)

It was the "aplay" thing that solved it.

I put osmo in the startup applications instead of making a symlink which I will never remember.

Zigbert's pschedule is the simple way to pop a message at a regular time,
and pclock or puppy clock can use pmusic to play an mp3 file as an alarm
