Unhappy Calendar program - need name


Hello all,

I found a program several months ago that used perl 5 to place a themed or transparent calendar on the corner of the desktop. It wouldn't run on my system at the time because of some older libs. Since then I have upgraded my box, BUT!!

I can't find the program again. I have searched freshmeat.net for calendar and gone through all 216 results. I have googled now for 2 days. (Yes, I realize I should have saved the old download) I also can't remember the name. Does anyone know what program I am talking about?

If you do, please post the name of it. I would really like to give this another try! Thanks for any help.

I don't know that I can provide any more information. It was a perl 5 program. It had different themes and sizes. It placed a month view calendar in the user determined corner of the desktop. It was borderless and most themes had at least some level of transparency. This is all I can remember.

Thanks,

PhilD

Thanks, but that is not it. There was no reference to KDE in the program I was looking at.

Any other ideas everyone?

Thanks contrasutra, but I don't think that was it. Gcal is for printing calendars. This was simply to display one on the desktop. It also used themes and such.

Humm..... It has to be out there somewhere. Thanks for the help so far.

Oh, well then thats not what its called.

But I was talking about a calender that appears on the desktop. I know its on the GNOME FTP, because thats where i got it from.

Try searching gnomedesktop.org for "calender" because they had a release a couple weeks ago.

I found it. This may be what you were talking about. It is called gDeskCal. My mistake was that it is python not perl. oops. It can be found at:

If anyone is interested.

Thanks for the help!!
