Gdeskcal is a little desktop calendar (in Windows, like the one in Webshots) that lets the user specify events.
This program can be downloaded from Mandriva official repositories, but, after the installation, it won't run if you use the version ONE of Mandriva (it does in PowerPack).
To solve the situation, use Mandriva Control Center to install
gnome-python-gtksourceview and the program will run perfectly.
To launch the application when you start your session, you must go to the hidden folder home/.kde/Autostart. Once there, right click to create a basic link to the gdeskcal file on /usr/lib/gdeskcal.
To change skins, download the corresponding .tar files, unpack them and copy the entire folders into the folder "skins", located as a hidden folder in home (.gdeskcal). Use the View menu in Dolphin and check the box "show hidden files" to see it.
I just discovered that this little program connects to korganizer, so your appointments are also logged there if you want fancier alarms. Great!
