Why not using gnome feature instead?

Gnome has similar feature:

On System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Typing break.

It'll lock entire screen ensuring a break (default 3 minuts every hour).

Very Cool!

Thanks for the tip, as a Gnome user, that looks very appealing. :)

How about Workrave?

If you like RsiBreak, you might like Workrave better. Then again, you might not. Opinions differ ;-)

Like RsiBreak, there is a Workrave package available in synaptic

Very slick

I agree, I might like that even better. That's one reason I love the Linux Journal community -- y'all are knowledgeable and willing to share tips. :)

Thanks!
