I'd like to have a Linux-Version of ManicTime
<quote from Last Years Request Page: http://bit.ly/1J2m4Ns>
As often requested in the old Forum, there are quite a few People that like to see a Linux-Version of ManicTime. Main-Focus may be Ubuntu for greatest audience.
I'm a Software-Developer and currently ManicTime is the only reason I don't switch to Linux as Develoment Enviroment. Since I know ManicTime, I can't imagine to work without it ;(
At best, you can modify the Windows-Version to run on Mono (Open Source .NET-runtime environment). This may work with very little effort.
Greatest challenge would be to read address-bar of browsers on the different gui toolkits.
Thanks in advance,

We have Linux tracker (tracking apps, browser usage with our browser plugin and screenshots), Linux server and now also cloud option.
So there are two ways to use it on the Linux, either with on premise server or our cloud.
We realize that this does not satisfy everybody supporting this idea, but we need suggestions for more specific ideas.
So we suggest more specific feature ideas are opened, so we can see which features are most desired and work on that.

I'm switching between Windows an Linux (office ties me to Windows, "proper work" is on Linux), and there's nothing even vaguely similar to ManicTime which runs on both.
I'd be happy with a reduced featureset -- as long as it lets me tag times and works out whether I'm using the computer or not, that'd already be a big advantage over what I have now.
Bonus aim: work out which application is active. I would not really need to to know which document is open or similar.
+100 for Linux (Ubuntu would be fine).
I doubt it will work, but you can try one of the older versions, v3.1 I think was the last one on .net 4.
I just tried to install it on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS over wine, but since it is build with "Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (x86 and x64)" it was not possible. If it was only built with .NET 4.0 it should have been installed successfully.

+1 for Ubuntu, would buy pro as well.
+1 Ubuntu. I'd buy the pro version.

+1 for Ubuntu. Even starting off with a limited feature set and building from there would be great. Statistics, tracking programs open, and tagging.

For those that need data collection right now, take a look at arbtt: http://arbtt.nomeata.de/ But it does not have a neat GUI, so it's not really a replacement.
+1 for Ubuntu
