Since Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric, the typing break has gone away from “System Settings -> Keyboard”. It’s been split out into an app called DrWright. This tutorial shows how to install DrWright and re-enable typing break in Ubuntu 12.04 & 11.10.
Install Drwright and enable Typing Break:
- 1. Install Drwright
Drwright got a stable ppa for Ubuntu 12.04 & 11.10, you can use this graphical way adding ppa:drwright/stable and install drwright.
Or, launch terminal from the dash home (or press Ctrl+Alt+T) and execute following commands to add ppa, update source and install drwright:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:drwright/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install drwright
- 2. re-enable typing break
Once drwright installed in Ubuntu, head to System Settings -> Typing Break.
Then re-enable typing break in this configuration page
That’s it, enjoy!
