Cinnamon panel calendar applet, syncable

Postby bennypr0fane on Thu Nov 28, 2013 2:13 pm


I'd like the Cinnamon panel calendar applet to show entries from my actual calendar, which I currently sync between Google calendar and my phone. The idea is to get that calendar synced to some application in my LMDE, which the desktop widget/panel applet would pull its data from.
For instance, the Gnome-Shell calendar applet can do that with Evolution, but it seems like the Cinnamon equivalent doesn't have that feature. Any other kind of dock, desktop widget etc. that'll play nice with Cinnamon is ok though, I just guess the built-in panel applet would be the most elegant one.
Also, I am trying to replace Google calendar with They support syncing to a number of apps and services - CardDAV, CalDAV too. So the desktop widget in question would have to pull its information from that app ot service.
Please point me to stuff that can do this kind of magic!
Thanks, Ben

Google Calendar Indicator works great for me (Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon).

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install calendar-indicator

After these commands you will see it in Menu > Other > Calendar. :wink:
