Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


DoThisNow is a Linux (w/ Gnome) application which allows you to run tasks at a certain time, like very 5 minutes, on a week day, on a given date, etc. The tasks include: setting a wallpaper, setting the Pidgin status, taking a screenshot, launch application or file, open URL in browser, display a message, run a shell command or play a sound.

As you can see, DoThisNow looks like a bit more advanced CRON, and also comes with a GUI, another useful thing being that you can run graphical applications.

There are a lot of things you can put DoThisNow to do so if you need something done automatically, give DoThisNow a try.

Download DoThisNow (Ubuntu .deb packages and source files).
