Calendar like Rainlendar


I'm looking for a calendar application like Rainlendar for Linux. I tried looking manually, but I'm only coming up with full blown applications like Sunbird.

Also, I found gDeskCal, but gDesklets has way to many dependencies so I'm going to use that as a last resort. Any help finding a calendar that isn't dependency hell will be greatly appreciated.

adesklets is a bit more lightweight than gdesklets, and also has a calender. It's seems a bit more limited than rainlender, and the notices for events seem a bit weird for me, but you might try taking a look at that to see if it would work for you.

Thank-you for the reply. That works alright for now, but I'm not sure if this is what you mentioned or just me doing it wrong. When I enter in a DateNote it doesn't change anything so there's no way to see there's a note on that day. Is there anyway to correct this?

That's pretty much been my experience as well. It doesn't seem to show anything on the calender, but gives a reminder the day when I have something marked. I've been hoping to figure out something I'm doing wrong or another decent calendar app, but admit I haven't tried real hard. Makes me feel a bit better that I'm not missing something incredibly obvious if you're having the same issue though.

You also can't add two notes on the same day so everything has to go into one big note. It's a good application besides a couple flaws pointed out in this thread. It is however better then I've found on Google. It will suffice for now until I find something better, thanks again. I'll post back if I find anything else that's better.

if you like sunbird but dont want the entire app you could try lightening which was recently released by mozilla as a calander add on to thunderbird. Should be very similar to sunbird.
and when i mean just released i mean yesterday
