Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Does anyone know of a time tracker app that logs which program you are using. So, if I'm using LibreOffice it'll log me as working, but then when the focus switches back to chrome, it'll log me as "procrastinating"

Thanks!

(first question ftw!)

similar if not the same question? askubuntu.com/questions/4113/… –  fossfreedom Jan 8 '12 at 22:50
    
Similar, but not the same. arbtt and Hamster might be the closest answeres. I suppose arbtt only logs, but doesn't count your working time. Hamster can do something similar with workspaces, but there is a bug. –  lumbric Jan 8 '12 at 23:13

I want a program that tracks the focus of what I'm working on automatically. I used rescuetime (rescuetime.com) for a while but their unnoffical linux client (launchpad.net/rescuetime-linux-uploader) doesn't work very well. –  Joseph Apr 10 '12 at 2:16

I had been using Replicon’s time tracking software which is an easy to use web application. It has a simple to use interface and great usability features which helps in easy project and time tracking and management for business projects.

This doesn't track program usage, so it's useless. I used rescuetime (rescuetime.com) for a while but their unnoffical linux client (launchpad.net/rescuetime-linux-uploader) doesn't work very well. –  Joseph Apr 10 '12 at 2:14

I've had good luck with rescuetime.com under Ubuntu and Mac OSX for time tracking. The free version will give you a 3 month window.

The customized goals have been fun to play with. I made a goal of less than .1 minutes of "uncategorized" time.
