If you don't mind a command line solution, there's timeclock:


This is actually an auxiliary part of Jason Wiegley's "ledger" CLI
accounting system; it outputs a plaintext log that can be used as input
for ledger itself.  Emacs and Vim integration is provided.

Ledger is packaged in Testing (apt-get install ledger).  If like me
you're running Lenny, you can build it from source after downloading


There is no xfce or gnome panel integration that I am aware of, however.
