An Alternative To KOrganizer: Evolution Mail And Calendar

If you want something like KOrganizer for reminders, you can install Evolution Mail and Calendar from the Software Center. I've tested it and it works in Ubuntu 11.10.

You just export from KOrganizer to .ics format and import it in Evolution.

I saw Evolution Mail and Calendar available for Windows too. Just Google it (Note: I've never tried this yet in Windows).

This is good for Windows 7 users since there is no default Calendar reminders for it, unless you buy Microsoft Office with Outlook in it, which is really expensive nowadays. I really can't understand why they removed this feature that is available in Windows Vista.

I guess, we'll never know.

KOrganizer Reminders Not Working In Ubuntu 11.10

I just had a problem with KOrganizer's reminders. No fix.

Is it just me or this always happen in Linux world? One thing they fixed it then the next time there it is again. My patience is trying, but I just couldn't bear it. It's like this will go on forever, like a turning wheel that never ends.
