GTimeLog is packaged for Debian and Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install gtimelog

For Ubuntu, a newer version can usually be found in the PPA:

You can fetch the latest released version from PyPI

$ gtimelog

You can run it from a source checkout without an explicit installation step:

$ cd gtimelog
$ make
$ ./gtimelog

System requirements:

  • Python (2.7 or 3.3+)

  • PyGObject

  • gobject-introspection type libraries for GTK+, Pango

GTimeLog was mainly written by Marius Gedminas <>.
