Toggl Desktop is a small desktop application that will help you track time more conveniently. It sits quietly in your system tray and when you need it (to start/stop/edit your work), it’s quickly accessible. It does what it’s designed to do best – tracks time.


Download Toggl Desktop Now:

Notes for Linux

Toggl Desktop needs Glibc 2.14 to run, due to limitations of the framework (TideSDK) used.

On Ubuntu following packages are necessary:

  • libjpeg62
  • libxss1

Distribution support

Currently, Toggl Desktop is only tested on Ubuntu. Most probably all recent debian-based distributions will work, but they are untested. RH based distributions (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora) are unsupported by the TideSDK framework but they may work, provided the existence of recent enough glibc.

At the moment there is only 64bit binary package available. There are no distribution-specific packages available. We are working on adding a generic .deb package which should be usable on all (recent) Debian based distributions.

We don’t have a version for 32bit Linux, but you’re able to create it by following the instructions here:

Window Managers

Toggl Desktop has been tested with Unity, Gnome and KDE in general should be working. There are known issues with LXDE.

*Please note that starting from Ubuntu 13.04 there is no tray (notification area icon) support.
