Thread: LEAP 15 Scheduler with GUI

  1. #1

    Default LEAP 15 Scheduler with GUI

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a software with GUI to create and manage some scheduled tasks.
    Before installing Leap 15, I was used with Gnome Schedule but it seems that is not available for Leap.

    Anyone know any other similar software to use?

    Thanks in advance

    You mean, like a daytimer or shopping list, or a calendar with appointments and tasks?

    In Gnome, there is evolution

    or also(?), gnome-calendar (though I do not know if it does tasks, as I do not use gnome).

    there is kOrganizer (KDE's calendar with appointments and tasks), but if you are running Gnome, you probably would prefer not to use it.

    or, remind = "A sophisticated calendar and alarm program"

    Those are in the repos. There are quite possibly others around, as well, in OBS.

    Hi and welcome to the forum
    Correct, it's fallen by the wayside, plus cron is on the way out... What sort of tasks are you wanting to run, are these your own scripts or something else. I would suggest using systemd timers/services. Perhaps some more details and can get you headed in the right direction

    Okay, with Malcolm's reply, I now know you are looking for a way to RUN tasks on schedule.

    Thank you for the welcome!!

    Sorry for the late reply.

    Actually I was not clear in my first post.
    I'm referring to a scheduler with a GUI like Gnome Schedule to create some scheduled tasks and as task I'm referring to grsync actions, to make file backup in a scheduled time.

    I felt Gnome Schedule really comfortable for this.
    I saw there is a Gnome Schedule for the Suse 42.3 but I've tried to install it, it seems ok but I think I created a mess with this because it adds the 42.3 software repository and after a software update, my suse 15 Leap downgraded to 42.3. Then I fixed this and I'd like to see for an alternative.

    I saw that there is "When" software but I tried to install but it wont' start.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi
    Do you have a link to 'when'?

    Like I said, cron is on the way out, maybe a systemd timer GUI is needed for user/system based tasks

    What tasks are you wanting to run, system tasks, or other?

    Why is cron on the way out? What will replace it?

    Oh, I didn't know cron is on the way out. About systemd, have you something with a GUI to suggest?

    I'd like to run different grsync sessions for backup purpose (different folders to backup with different time scheduled)

    OK, so the when-command package, do you have the gnome-shell extension top icons plus installed?
