As you may know, Go For It is an open-source to-do list application having a simple interface and a built-in timer. The activity list is stored on todotxt.com and so, it is easy for the users to synchronize it with their mobile devices. Also worth mentionig, Go For It automatically archives the complemented tasks to the done list.
The latest version available is Go For It 1.4.5, which has been recently released, coming with a bunch of fixes only.
Up to date packages are available via the developer’s PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya and other Ubuntu derivative systems is easy.
All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the go-for-it package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mank319/go-for-it
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install go-for-it
For Unity, disable the overlay scrollbar:
$ sudo sed -i "s/Exec=go-for-it/Exec=env\ LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0\ go-for-it/g" /usr/share/applications/go-for-it.desktop
$ sudo apt-get remove go-for-it
