How about a combination of ktimer and kdialog?
Ktimer is super simple but fulfills the countdown need well. I don't know if
"scheduled" breaks would work for your purposes, but you might be able to
accomplish what you want with cron too.
Kdialog has a lot of uses and options. Here's some examples:
kdialog --sorry "Sorry to interrupt, but it's time for a break."
kdialog --passivepopup "Sorry to interrupt, but it's time for a break."
Depends on how disruptive you want it to be.
