Is there a way to put a calender on the desktop (maybe as a widget) in KDE4?


I tried Googling for the answer but I was unable to find one. Your help would be appreciated.

I use gdeskcal which puts a calendar on the desktop. It is not a kde widget. I have it started automatically when I log in.

Don't you have one already?
It is a long time since I used KDE - but it is very much alike Gnomes Desktop in this respect.
There is a clock-applet displayed by default - it shows a calendar when you click on it...in KDE too, I think.

Thank you. I'll give it a try.

Yes I do, but I can't customize it in KDE4. There might be a way, but I haven't been able to find it. The settings are probably hidden some damn where.

I use gnome which has gdesklets for this kind of thing. If you can't find a KDE equivalent there are some that just require X and will run on any desktop, see if you can install xcal or xcalendar.
