I need a calendar that supports pop-up alarms.

What do you recommend ?

I use to use this. It ran well in wine. It doesn't have a calender persay but you can set an alarm to pop up with sound on the date you want.

I'm sure there's better but it served my purpose.

I did use Osmo for a while, but the format in different versions kept changing so I reverted to calcurse. i.e. osmo wasn't consistent across even different versions of osmo, whilst calcurse being a textual 'database' is very portable. I maintain a local version for private content, but also a public version running within a tmux session on a ssh server that I can attach/detach from a range of different devices.

Some use notifications ... such as outlined here https://askubuntu.com/questions/713822/how-can-i-use-the-notify-send-command-in-combination-with-the-calcurse-calendar Personally I don't bother as I use my phone for such alarms/notifications.

I tried OSMO but I couldn't find where to tell it to create a pop-up window. Where is that feature located?

In Windoze (which I am trying to wean myself from) I use a small and very convenient app called Personal Reminder.

It has a calendar and alarms.

Very easy to use.

When an alarm is tripped, it puts a pop-up window on the screen which stays there until manually dispositioned. The disposition options include postpone (you can set the amount of time to postpone), edit, and delete. And if the computer happens to be in an unpowered state at the time an alarm was scheduled, it will immediately pop up that missed alarm when the computer is turned on.
.

That's what I'm looking for. Is there such an app for Linux ?

It doesn't say 'pop-up window' specifically, but this should do the trick:

Either right-click the day for which you want to set a reminder and choose 'Add Task', or go to the Tasks tab, and click the icon with the green + sign.

Enter the time and date, and the reminder message you want to pop up, then click OK.
