nice little piece of candy.. @BlueFin - just type gdeskcal into the terminal
omg! finally! no fancy gimmicks, just pick a day, write something, and forget about it, needs a whee bit of extra styling, also in mint 17, does not load into app menu, so have to tie it up to a hot corner, launcher or run from terminal
Installed it on Linux Mint 17.1 cinnamon but can't find it anywhere! App is unusable.
A nice desktop calendar, a bit like Rainlendar.
