Ubuntu – Break Reminder for Ubuntu


What is the best software for Ubuntu to remind us to take a break for our eyes (like EyeLeo in Windows).

Best Answer

Here is another tool called Safe Eyes for the same purpose:

sudo apt install safeeyes

Alternatively, you can install it from the PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slgobinath/safeeyes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install safeeyes
