RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
Not from my side sadly, I mounted the whole partition of my old xubuntu 18.04 and pointed the library path there, no luck starting it. Missing a bit of the necessary Dev-Skills there to debug further.

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
It almost works with Wine, but with the huge issue that it only logs keystrokes when the main window is focused...

A somehow working solution, using xinput, some python script & xdotool, is to grab all keyboard input, and send it to the WhatPulse window. It's not without flaws : keeping a key pressed sends hundreds of keys, which could be considered as cheating. I need to find a workaround.

But as a proof of concept, with a little bit of work, we could get it working.

I hope they move on to QT5, because QT4 is dropped in ubuntu 20.04 (I'm using xubuntu)

LeCastor2001, your approach seems interesting! Maybe there is a way to filter the events in order to avoid getting spam ?

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
Since whatpulse is currently the only thing holding me back from updating all my linux machines to kubuntu/xubuntu 20.04 (and upgrading the desktop to a nice and shiny NVMe along the way), I'm slowly turning away... although I'm a member forever now and pretty high ranked in most categories... Sad

To me it's not only that I won't be able to run it on linux anymore, it's also about that it crashes quite regularly out of the blue, 2.8.4 doesn't count uptime when the screen is locked, which is mandatory at work for even just going to the next room to fetch a coffee. I have to speed-limit myself to make the network stats count as it stops counting them above ca. 22MB/sec and using docker for programming (which is main job, side job AND hobby), causes it to lock up the whole machine for about half an hour every other day (as if the modern Electron apps aren't evil enough) Sad

I'll give it a few more weeks, but latest when a project will require me to switch to 20.04, I guess I'm out, even with the windows machines. Wouldn't make sense to only track the occasional game session and the netflix pc.

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
The only reason I'm still running whatpulse on my windows computer is because i am tracking my stats for osu! and other rhythm games ... Now that it's been a year since I can't use it on my laptop, the other stats don't mean much. Anytime to put it back will be good, but it's losing more and more value.
