I need a calendar that stores everything locally as I work from places that don't have internet sometimes (I'm a virtual office). I really can't figure it out from reading what I can find about the subject. I am using Mint 12.

  • Lightning is working out very nicely for me! – Nathan C. Tresch Jun 5 '12 at 23:48

Mozilla Thunderbird plus lightning addon (official replacement for Sunbird which is no longer actively maintained)

  • Yeah I tried this after following the link that @vicabreu gave us. I don't use kde or gnome, so this is the best choice. – Nathan C. Tresch Jun 4 '12 at 19:45
  • Mozilla is also making efforts to bring Lightning in line with current CalDAV standards. It works fairly well as a client for Apple's Calendar Server software. – Tim Jun 4 '12 at 20:15

There is plenty of calendar software for Linux. Depending of your needs and desktop environment that you use you can choose from:

  • KOrganizer from KDE,
  • Evolution if you prefer GNOME,
  • Mozilla Thunderbird with Lightning addon if you want to be multiplatfrom,
  • Remind for console users,
  • and M-x calendar and ~/.diary if you are Emacs user... ;)
  • I appreciate the many options, but for me personally Thunderbird is the only real choice as I don't use KDE or Gnome. @tim gave that answer first so he gets the check, but I upvoted you as you provided a great deal of info. Thanks! – Nathan C. Tresch Jun 4 '12 at 19:47
  • +1 for a great list. Anyone googling this question will get some good leads. – Tim Jun 4 '12 at 20:16
  • Remind is a great console app. Upvoted. – Deer Hunter Mar 28 '14 at 12:57
  • Caveat of Evolution: does not do CardDAV. – Raphael Oct 20 '15 at 14:46

I strongly recommend you to use Mozilla Sunbird.

  • That isn't being maintained after the last release, so I'm going to use what's intended to replace it. Thanks! – Nathan C. Tresch Jun 4 '12 at 19:11
