Hi all,

 I am using python 2.6(running ubuntu 9.10 ).

I want to display the amount of time spent( by an user)  among all the
 running applications like Gedit, Firefox, GIMP and display the result

For eg:
Firefox: 60%

I think, i need to capture the currently focussed application, update the
time spent in some format and display it graphically.

I am not sure about the modules that need to be used.I welcome your ideas.
