Dojotools is intended to help in coding dojo sessions.
Our huge feature list is:
Watch a directory for changes and run a user supplied command when a file changes
Keep track of the round time (in the simplest way possible)
The only dependency is pygtk (to create the status icon), but if you want notifications, you should also have pynotify installed.
Notifications, however, will not work very well in Ubuntu, since Canonical’s Notify-OSD does not behave the same way as libnotify does in other linux distributions.
Install the notification-daemon package:
sudo apt-get install notification-daemon
Rename the /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd executable
sudo mv /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd-original
Create a symbolic link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
Kill the original notification:
sudo killall notify-osd
Launch the new notification - press alt+F2, type /usr/lib/notify-osd/notify-osd
notify-send test test
We still need notifications for other platforms.
