PostPosted: Wed 30 Jan 2013, 06:19    Post subject:  pcal - Calendar Program (Puppy Slacko 5.4 tgz package)
Subject description: Paper calendar tool (creates PS / PDFs) - pcal package links and compilation steps
 

Please enjoy pcal (paper calendar tool) package on Puppy Linux (Puppy Slacko 5.4). This is version 4.11.0 compiled directly within puppy and can be directly installed (at least in Puppy Slacko 5.4):

pcal-4.11.0-i486-1_SBo.tgz

This is a pre-"e" style of having a calendar (printing out a monthly overview, i.e. on paper). It is quite easy to use and produces nice results.

Homepage of pcal: http://pcal.sourceforge.net ("pcal: a calendar-generation program which produces nice-looking PostScript output.")

------------------------------------------------------------------
Compile steps:

1) Download necessary files to a temporary directory:
1a) wget http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.0/office/pcal.tar.gz
1aa) wget http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.0/office/pcal.tar.gz.asc
1b) http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pcal/pcal-4.11.0.tgz

2) verify file
within the directory execute gpg --verify pcal.tar.gz.asc
(gnupg needs to be installed, --import key from http://slackbuilds.org/GPG-KEY)

3) execute the SlackBuild script from within the directory of (1)
./R.SlackBuild

(Please ensure that you have the devx_slacko_5.4.sfs loaded. Additionally it required to install ncompress-4.2.4.3, which I did via the puppy package manger PPM)
------------------------------------------------------------------


Here is an example PDF created by pcal:
pcal_example_en.pdf

Personal dates and calendar entries are put into a file ~/.calendar
Code:
30 Jan 08:00 Compile pcal
31 Jan 18:00 Post to murga-linux


To produce a calendar output like this, these are the commands I used:
Code:
pcal -m -a en -E -P a4 -B -F 1 -n URWBookmanL/6 -o ~/cal.ps 01 2013
ps2pdf cal.ps pcal_example_en.pdf


Please note, that you can change "en" to another language code (e.g. "-a de" or "-a es").
