    Cool tool: "undistract-me" to inform about commands in terminal

    Hi,

    13.04 has a nice tool in the repositories: "undistract-me". It will inform you about when a command in a terminal in the background finishes.

    To enable it:

    1) sudo apt-get install undistract-me
    2) open Terminal, in Terminal: “Edit->Profile Preferences”, and select “Run command as a login shell” must be enabled in your terminal.
    3) close Terminal, and open a new Terminal

    After that, you will get a popup *if* the command is running in a Terminal that's in the background
