Ubuntu – I can’t install gnome schedule on Ubuntu 16.04


I would like to install gnome-schedule in my recent Ubuntu 16.04 but I can't find the how. It is not in ubuntu software and if I type sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule, I get it's not found. I would like to use it because I find it quick and easy to use. I've been looking for alternatives but instead of "when" which I don't like, I can't find anything else, so help is welcome.

gnome-schedule is indeed not in the official Ubuntu repositories for Ubuntu 16.04.

However, at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-schedule/+bug/1576060/comments/23, Kartik (kartik-arora95) has kindly compiled a .deb package for version 2.3.0 of Gnome Schedule that is reportedly working for Ubuntu 16.04. Download the .deb package provided at the aforementioned link and then install it using:

sudo dpkg -i gnome-schedule_2.3.0-0ubuntu16.04_amd64.deb
