I work as a teacher. There are certain routines in my lesson, announced with timed events in Orage, sent to notifications. E.g.:
- Clean Up
- Put Chairs Up
My students requested I put a countdown clock on the screen to warn how much time is left until an event. I use XFce, so this could be either displayed on a panel at the top of the screen, never covered by full screen items, or as a non-clickable, transparent heads-up display that is always present above every window.
- 3:10 until cleanup.
- 6:10 until end of class.
These are not countdowns that are manually activated, but happen at specific times every day, e.g. a 10 minute countdown begins at 3:00 pm and ends at zero at 3:10 pm. I can use
orage to activate the scripts, but need some way to display the counters and information.
Is there any way to display such count-down timers on the screen?
