I am looking for a project planning software for Linux which supports the following features:

  • define a task A x days before or after a given task B
  • if the date of task B changes also the date of A changes correspondingly
  • show the date of task A
  • provide a Gantt diagram

Nice to have:

  • visualize the dependence between A and B
  • export list dates of tasks as a list for printing

1 Answer 1


Try GanttProject

It simple, but look like it meet requirements.

I don't sure only about "timeline view" (Gantt diagram not it?) and "export list dates of tasks as a list for printing".


For example,

  • make task B depend on A
  • in B properties set delay (positive or negative) to shift start of task B relative to end of task A
  • change start date for task A, and task B change dates automatically.

Or I misunderstood what's You mean by 1 and 2

  • I tried it but didn't see how to get point 1 and 2 of my requirements.

  • Did you make sure that A and B have a "finish to start" relationship? Not sure about starting X days after, though - you might have to defined a dummy X day project between them

    Im tried again on my GanttProject 2.7.1 Ostrava (build 1924) I can define finish to start relationship (on task B) relative to Task A and set Delay. When I changed date of task A, task B moved.
