I could not get remind to stay loaded using the (often) given syntax or any reasonable variation on it including nohup etc. Maybe it's something I've misunderstood or there is a problem in mint; I don't know.
I've tried two python-based alarm/reminder apps but the version of python used by mint maya has a memory allocation problem which steadily uses up swap space (by wasting memory) until there is none left - this is well documented online. On my machine, running at zero bytes swap more or less hangs the machine as it tries (and fails) to swap memory in/out.
My stop-gap solution is to install a reminder plug-in in tomboy. A bit clumsy in use but it does not waste resources unnecessarily as kalarm does.
So: I'd still kile to use remind but cannot get it to stay loaded without keeping the invoking terminal open as well. If anyone who knows how to get this working finds this thread, please post your solution! :)
