@pleb specifically, telling cron to run mpg123 doesn't work, plus it'd be nice to have something I can interact with from my desktop environment since one of the alarm files is 15 minutes long, etc.
@pleb yeah it's basically just a vent bc I'm trying to set reminders to meditate and do self care bc life has burned thru all the patience I have, which then makes it difficult to try 9 methods of accomplishing this until I find one that works.
didn't have it in me to research the cron issue last night after xfce4-timer-plugin let me down
ran out of patience again this morning after trying 4 more apps since cron isn't ideal
I'll get it working eventually, thanks for the info!
