What I need is a pomodoro timer ( that I can use on a gnome linux (openSUSE) workstation that I use at work. It has to be able to show a popup notification so that I don't need to focus on the app and can see it whatever I'm doing. I can't install anything but I can use binaries in my /home/bin folder. I've tried various google-chrome apps/extensions but can't find anything which will give me pop-up notifications while google-chrome is minimised. It also has to be customisable (10 mins work, 2 mins break for example).

Anything out there that I can use?

If you are using GNOME 3, simply go to and install this extension.
