I use etm_qt 2.2.3 constantly to organize and document my life. (an earlier version is in the 7.0 repository). One of etm's features is a timer, which allows me to conveniently record and organize time spent on various projects, phone calls, etc. The bottom of the etm display shows the timer's status (on, off, paused). It would be nice if I could see the timer portion of the etm display no matter which workspace I am in. (I use 6 workspaces). However, the little etm icon in the panel disappears unless focus is on etm. So I am constantly having to figure out which workspace etm is in, move it to the current workspace, and then use alt-tab all the time to check its status.
Is there a program anyone knows about that would allow me quick and convenient access to etm?
Is there a program that would allow me to always show the bottom of the etm screen (the timer) no matter which workspace I am in and no matter what program I am running at the time?
I am told that there is a mac program (geektool) that does this, but I have not tried it.
