Hi Girish: Have you tried compiling from source? It's easier than you
might think. My experience is that it usually works, even when I have
no idea what I'm doing. ;-)
Here's what you'd do:
- Download the source from http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/remind.
In this case, the latest release is 03.01.09.
- Open a terminal and cd to the directory where you downloaded the
- Unzip and extract the source: tar xzf remind-03.01.09.tar.gz
- cd remind-03.01.09
You can see if that worked by running the remind binary that you created
- ./src/remind -q ~/.reminders
which you can install for real with
- sudo make install
After that, you should be able to run /usr/local/bin/remind -q
~/.reminders. (If you can't just run remind -q ~/.reminders, then your
environment needs to be configured to do that.)
Let us know if that works.
