Looking to work on Toggl Desktop code? You’ll find it at Github.

Great news for all of our Linux, Mac and Windows hackers!

We just released the new version of Toggl Desktop (v2.5) as open source. You can find the code at Launchpad.

The regular update procedure (the new version notification dialog) remains the same, so nothing changes for our users who are not interested in the C++ code. The new version is also available on our web page.

However, the new version brought some changes for our Linux users.

Since the new Toggl Desktop uses Qt4.6 and this is not yet in all the repositories then Linux users must enter a few commands to get the necessary dependencies. Here are the steps:

Ubuntu/Kubuntu

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/beta
sudo apt-get update
launch the installer

Debian

Unfortunately Debian repositories do not include the Qt4.6 yet (except the experimental), so Debian users will have to wait until the Qt4.6 is available in their repository.

The 64-bit Linux version will be available tomorrow.

UPDATE (Linux): You can now add Toggl Desktop to your repository sources list and use the native update mechanism:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:official-toggl/ppa
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install toggl-desktop

Cheers,

Toggl Team
