You don't need an app to have a calendar available to you. If you have access to a terminal, just type 'cal'.

You want to have all months showed in a terminal window? Just type 'cal 2017'

I use cal all the time with the option -w to see the week numbers at the uni PCs, see man cal(1) for a list of all the options. Very Happy
But, my home Puppy uses Busybox, and that severely limits the choices : cal [-jy] [[MONTH] YEAR] Sad

We unfortunately tend to forget all the wonderful little Linux programs which are available through the terminal window, you do a nice job by bringing them back, labbe5! Very Happy
