xfce4-time-out-plugin - Time Out
Xfce4-time-out-plugin makes it possible to take periodical breaks from the computer every X minutes. During breaks it locks your screen. It optionally allows you to postpone breaks for a certain time.
The idea is inherited from DrWright, a plugin I loved back when I was using GNOME.
In the properties dialog you have several options to configure the plugin. You can define
- the duration (length) of each break (default: 5 minutes)
- the time between breaks (default: 30 minutes)
- the postpone time (default: 2 minutes)
- whether to allow breaks to be postponed
- whether to display seconds in the panel
- whether to display hours in the panel
- whether to display the remaining time until the next break at all
The plugin also offers a context menu which makes it possible to
- deactivate the plugin easily
- take a break instantly
