Any recommendations from others on this list about an application that
will meet my four criteria?
Thanks in anticipation.
I use GPE Calendar. It runs on my Nokia N800, and seems to have the
properties you want. Not sure how it interacts with Gnome or Xfce,
This would be for laptop and desktop systems.
I have searched through the Debian packages and don't even see where
such applications would be listed.
Any other ideas/ recommendations?
I would consider Iceowl (or possibly Iceowl-Extension, if you use
Icedove as a mail client). I'm not certain that it can be made to meet
one of your criteria -- that it be consignable to the system
notification area -- but I use it for all of the other features you
mention. If you need to be able to synchronize calendars with those of
other people I understand that the addon called Provider for Google
Calendar can handle that function, and I think there are other
alternatives as well.
Thanks for this. I was considering Iceowl, but it was the system
notification option that swung it in favour of Osmo. Useful to know
about the synchronisation option though, and I may well revisit it one
day for those pursposes.
Thanks for the suggestion.
You're welcome. To tell you the truth, I'm taking a hard look at osmo,
too. A couple of months ago I was thinking of switching from icedove to
claws-mail. I love claws-mail's mail functionality, but calendar support
is virtually non-existent in it (just has assignment of events to
others), and its contacts book is extremely limited. If I had known
about osmo at the time I would probably have used it and claws-mail as a
replacement for the icedove / iceowl combination.
The only drawback for me with respect to osmo is that its ical import
doesn't seem to result in editable tasks or events. I'd have to do a
heck of a lot of data entry in order to switch all of my upcoming events
from iceowl to editable form in osmo -- unless I'm missing something.
I hope it goes well for you! I'm going to be studying it, too.
