Doesn't work. Says "Execute gcalendar" in the desklet without any instruction on how to do so.

Nice desklet. But one thing is needed one thing: in my and many others countries a week starts by monday. I didn't find any parameter for this setting.

Forgot to mention the files will be available till Jan 15, 2021as it is a free filesharing service not allowing me to store them permanently without creating an unnecessary account

OK, I created a repo for this to make it more transparent

Hi, I had the same problem so I modified the source code. You can download it from Replace calendar.js and desklet.js in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/calendar@deeppradhan and restart cinnamon or log-out + log-in.

Hello, as I see there is not much interest in helping a newbie, I expected more help in Linux

I suspect you would get a more prompt response from the developer's Github site. Scroll up to the top of this page and click either the "Website" button between "Issues" and "Download", or just the "Issues" button, depending on your intent/needs. Not enough people visit these spices pages to make any kind of discussion like this useful.

Hello, I would like to know if someone can help me to translate the desklet into Spanish and change the starting day of the week from Sunday to Monday, Because I am new to these topics and ask for help in performing these tasks. Greetings and thanks

you know what? I wanted to change language to spanish, and it took me no more than 5 minutes, editing just some lines on the js. This is cool man, I mean cool cool. Well done job.

Using LMDE 3 Cindy, Cinnamon 4.0.10. Icons Mint -Y, Controls Mint -Y, Desktop Mint-Y-Dark At the top of the calendar, there are arrows either side of the Month/Year, left to go back a month, right to go forward a month. These are arrows are not showing, instead i just get a white square. Likewise, for today, I just get a white square. This happens in Month only, and Both Today and Month only. I have opted for white text and a transparent background - every other date is appearing in white font correctly, likewise, the Saturday/Sunday are appearing in the red font that I chose.

every time this desklet is updated, these symbols break! Can i turn off automatic updating of this desklet?

Just installed LMDE Debbie - but the issue is also happening with LM 19.3 - with default desktop settings. At the top of the calendar, there are arrows either side of the Month/Year, left to go back a month, right to go forward a month. These are arrows are not showing, instead i just get a white square. There is nowhere in settings allowing me to change the colour.

Found a solution, Using Xed open ~.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/calendar@deeppradhan/desklet.js Change this.labelPrevious.set_text("\u2BC7"); to this.labelPrevious.set_text("\u22B2"); Change this.labelPrevious.set_text("\u2BC8"); to this.labelPrevious.set_text("\u22B2"); Then reload the desklet and the back and next arrow will be visible

no, the edit above no longer works, must now use the following this.labelPrevious.set_text("\u25C0"); this.labelNext.set_text("\u25B6");

Находим папку desklets/calendar@deeppradhan, а в ней файл - desklet.js, 77 и 79 строка меняем на < и >

This issue is no more :-) - it seems to have disappeared after an update to Mint themes in the Update Manager over the past day or so.

Nice desklet. Can you please add 12 hour mode for the clock? And add some margin to the calendar, it looks cramped.
