Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Clock App is the clock application for Ubuntu Touch, the Ubuntu mobile operating system. Being part of the Ubuntu Touch Core Apps project, Clock App is an application developed by some third party developers, under the supervision of the Ubuntu developers.
The latest version available is Clock App 0.7, which has been recently released. Among others, it comes with an experiemental alarm support. The user is finally available to set an alarm clock, only in certain days, by long pressing on the screen of the Ubuntu Touch powered device.
The alarm clock function has been partially implemented only, extra functionalities will be added soon.
In this article I will show you how to install and test the Ubuntu Touch Clock App 0.7 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail and Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander.
Because the Ubuntu Clock App and the needed dependency (Ubuntu SDK) are available via third party repositories, installing Ubuntu Clock App 0.7 on the latest versions of Ubuntu available is easy. Just add the needed PPAs, update the local repository index and install the ubuntu-clock-app and ubuntu-sdk package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-touch-coreapps-drivers/daily
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk ubuntu-clock-app
