Google Calendar Indicator Ubuntu

Calendar Indicator is more than just a tool that displays Google Calendar events on the top Ubuntu panel. Besides displaying the next 10 Google Calendar events in the indicator, the application lets you add new events and it comes with a fully-featured calendar that lets you access all your events, edit existing events and so on.

From its preferences, you can select the font and background color used by the full calendar events, time between automatic Google Calendar synchronizations, switch between light and dark AppIndicator icons or set Calendar indicator to start automatically when you log in.

  • fixed calendar events not showing up in the indicator menu under Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander;
  • fixed bug that prevented events that occur today from being displayed;
