    Calendar app?


    I'm looking for a calendar/scheduler application that:

    1. Is ONLY a calendar and scheduler (so evolution won't cut it)
    2. Is light and fast (I have an older computer, I'd like something faster and lighter than Mozilla's Sunbird)
    3. Looks alright (for instance, I found at least one such app made for the command line)
    4. If at all possible is based on Gtk (I use Xfce)


    Any recommendations? Oh, and I don't want anything web-based (found a ton of those on sourceforge).

    Thanks!

    Yes, I know, but it is very limited. I'd like something that I can use as a scheduler, to schedule things like meetings, exams etc. I'm looking for something like the calendar app on OS X.

    Have you looked at Korganizer? I don't use these tools really but it looks like it might be okay.

    You could also try Mozilla's calendar.

    Thanks for the tips, but:

    1. Korganizer is nice, but too slow, I want to stay away from KDE programs.
    2. Mozilla's calendar is almost the same as sunbird, as mentioned above too slow. Also, I have not had luck compiling any mozilla programs from source, which I would like to do.

    I might in the end go with sunbird, though I'd really like to find something faster.

    I have used Sunbird and found it to be very nice. I actually had an rpm for it. You might be able to find a deb for it.

    Doctor Dan: I've got a P3 800 Mhz, 128 Mb of RAM, running Kanotix. The disk is quite slow, not sure of it's specs. I'm sure I can get a .deb of sunbird, but if I choose to use it, I'll probably try to compile it from source. I would love to find something gtk based, however. As I said, I spent quite some time with Google and sourceforge but didn't find what I was looking for...

    If anyone has anymore suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
