Ubuntu comes with a Workrave package. You can install it from the command line with the following command:

sudo apt-get install workrave

If you need a newer version than what is included in your distribution, use the official Workrave PPA.

The Workrave PPA can be enabled by entering these commands into a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository --yes ppa:rob-caelers/workrave
sudo apt update
sudo apt install workrave

If you have the Ubuntu version of Workrave installed, you need to uninstall that first:

sudo apt remove workrave workrave-data

The Workrave PPA has separate package for each supported desktop environment. You only need to install the one for your desktop environment.

sudo apt install workrave-cinnamon
sudo apt install workrave-gnome
sudo apt install workrave-mate
sudo apt install workrave-unity
sudo apt install workrave-xfce
