Description

Name: Rescuetime
Homepage: https://www.rescuetime.com

RescueTime automatically builds a record of the activities and websites you are spending time with.
Maybe will be included as a productivity tool...

Open Source: No

They offer 32 and 64 bit linux versions
32-bit: https://www.rescuetime.com/installers/rescuetime_current_i386.deb
64-bit: https://www.rescuetime.com/installers/rescuetime_current_amd64.deb

Other notes:
I'm been able to install manually from .deb package, just copying files in /opt and making symlink to /usr/bin and /usr/share/rescuetime

No desktop or iconography provided for the launch of the application. Not sure why you'd throw the stuff in opt and symlink it...

Anyways, marking it as accepted for inclusion in 3rd-Party.

Well, I like to have all "external" apps in /opt, but I guess sudo-copying in /usr will do the trick too (sorry my english is not quite good)

And for icon, best I've could find is this: https://www.rescuetime.com/images/blog-images/logo_large.svg

Kind regards,

What's the protocol for non-versioned releases? They do give versions on the web page, but not on the download. I've gotten it working on my system, seems to be tracking correctly.

Given we have no plans on flatpaking or snapping this application, closing as wontfix. I'd suggest reaching out to the respective developers about supporting either of those distribution and container models.
