alarm-clock-applet but i have to set up several countdown and i cannot launch them together, is however useful.
I would an app that let me use an only timer with multiple alarms. For example 30s+45s+60s+45s+120s (that aren' t countdowns) that i can launch wiht one click or even better set up to repeat X times.
Is possible maybe with some script? (An app would be better).

Although 19 timers are supported, they might only fit on a 1920x1080 screen. About 17 (the default setting) will fit on the average 1024x768 screen. If you have Super VGA with 800x600 resolution you might only get 13 to 15 timers.
You must change the values on lines 85 & 86 at the same time:
eg If you want a maximum of 12 timers, set
After changing the Index and Maximum save the
multi-timerfile. If you have already run the program once a configuration file may have been created and it will have to be deleted. Use this command to remove the old configuration file:
