    Default New OpenSuse User misses the Remind Software

    Hi all,

    This is my first post.

    After some DistroHopping I'm back and cuddling with the Chameleon.
    I have used Suselinux back in the late 90'ties and was switching back to linux 2 years ago.

    I have just switched from Ubuntu 8.04 to OpenSuse 11.0 and I must say that I'm impressed, the Gnome Desktop works exactly as expected.

    Now I'm trying to recreate my desktop, but one thing is missing though !

    Where is remind ??

    Remind is a famous calendaring software that together with Gxmessage always have providing me with reminders and todo's.

    I have these repo's enabled:
    Code:
    niels@nirvana:~> zypper repos

    Now I am in doubt about what to do now, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to just grab the nearest .rpm available, because remind works like a daemon and should be placed correctly in the filesystem to work properly.

    Anyone here have any hints ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi. Search for remind here: Webpin
    You can install it directly from the website via 1-click install.

    Welcome back, but would tell to many people with whom you enjoy
    cuddling with

    You may not be aware of the 'build service' so have a search here for
    remind;

    You can get rid off some repo's here.
    You have the OSS, non-OSS and the packman repo twice.

    -=WELCOME=- new poster, but be *careful* you are in a **4** year old
    thread, in which the question is about a what appears to be an old
    command line program for a version of openSUSE which met its end of life
    in 30 months ago..

    here is a twelve year old article on the remind:
    http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/3529

    i doubt it is what you had in mind...
    if it is what you were looking for i think you just need to do a
    Code:
    man remind
    and it won't be "dumb der" any more..

    I've just checked the matter in YaST2. In the standard repo "Oss",
    there is "remind". In stead of using the 1-Click Install, fire up YaST2;
    and search for "remind".
    There is "wyrd": 'Text-based front-end to Remind time organizer'.
    (This package needs "tclib"; but that is taken care of.)

    It does not matter if you use GNOME, KDE, Openbox, etc. to use this
    program. I tried "remind" before but I gave up. It's not simple to use.
    Anyway, many programs that are installed in your computer do not appear
    in the standard menu.

    There's "gtg": 'Getting Things GNOME! (GTG) is a personal organizer for
    the GNOME desktop environment inspired by the Getting Things Done (GTD)
    methodology'. You may want to try this. It's in the standard Oss repo.
