Non KDE organiser/todo/calander wanted


I'm looking for something that can remind me of events and should use iCal format for the calander.

All I can find is KDE's Korganizer which requires kdeinit to run (at least the systray daemon does), but I'm trying to find something that doesn't require KDE or Gnome.

Plan seems pretty good but the files are not in iCal format.

Any ideas?

You could write a script and set up a cron job.

It could do anything, such as echo the reminder to the screen and use a simple console media player to play a sound. It would be independent of WM/DE and wouldnt even need X to run.

It's not as flashy but it would work

Good idea but I would like it also to show a calander too, so I can see at a glance what's coming in the following week for example. At the moment I have two iCals with appointments in one and public holidays in another. I guess I could write a script that parses the info and print out events.

You could play around with
Code:
cal
in your script, maybe that would help, only suggesting this because i dont know of any other calender apps

There's something in the Arch repository called remind that I've found to be kind of useful though very minimal. You edit events as a text file. The normal output to console as a list of events for that day, or if specified in the file it can remind you a set number of days ahead of time. It also has an option to display as a calender.

I'm not certain, but this may be the same thing.

Well korganizer does precisely what I want but when it runs it loads all this too:

Code:
dave     13407  0.0  2.0  33672 15520 ?        Ss   10:42   0:00 kdeinit Running...
dave     13410  0.0  1.7  32336 13556 ?        S    10:42   0:00 dcopserver [kdeinit] --nosid --suicide
dave     13412  0.0  1.9  33624 15104 ?        S    10:42   0:00 klauncher [kdeinit]
dave     13414  0.0  2.3  36140 18308 ?        S    10:42   0:01 kded [kdeinit]
There's definitely a distinct lack of this sort of software...
